Chevy Sonic Buyers Guide

The Chevrolet Sonic is officially out and are on the way here at Runde’s! In case you weren’t in the know, the Chevy Sonic is a replacement to the popular Chevy Aveo. I know many of the Aveo fans might be skeptical about the switch but rest assured the Sonic promises to deliver a quality, impressive ride. In my opinion, it’s the best entry-level vehicle to any Make I’ve seen.

The Sonic is available as a Sedan or Hatch. In addition to an impressive 40 MPG Highway, it offers features unheard of in its segment. Lets get some facts straight:

The Sonic is no-holds-bars when it comes to available options, many of them not offered by other entry level vehicles, including; 1.4L Turbo with 6-speed manual transmission, Remote Start, Heated Leatherette Seats, Sunroof  Bluetooth, Auxiliary port and USB Technology.

This is not your run-of-the-mill entry level vehicle. This is bringing the “what? no way!” factor to the “entry level” car. It offers the best of class, style, performance and technology all at one little price. Try one out to see for yourself.
