2016 Chevrolet Sonic vs. 2016 Dodge Dart Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Sonic offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Dodge Dart with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Sonic and the Dodge Dart in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Dodge Dart you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Sonic, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Sonic will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Dart. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Sonic carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Dart.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Sonic is much slimmer than the Dodge Dart, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Sonic, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Dart.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Sonic has much less torque than the Dodge Dart, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Sonic is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Dart. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Sonic and the Dodge Dart.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Sonic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Dart.
