2017 Chevrolet Sonic vs. 2016 Honda CR-Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-Z, the Chevrolet Sonic may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Sonic will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda CR-Z, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Honda CR-Z. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda CR-Z.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Sonic is about the same width as the Honda CR-Z. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Sonic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda CR-Z.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Sonic does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda CR-Z.

Handling
The Chevrolet Sonic has a larger turning radius than the Honda CR-Z, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more powerful than the Honda CR-Z.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Sonic more than the Honda CR-Z, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Sonic will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda CR-Z.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Sonic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-Z.
