2014 Mazda Mazda2 vs. 2015 Chevrolet Sonic Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Sonic than the Mazda Mazda2, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Sonic, the Mazda Mazda2 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda Mazda2 as you will with the Chevrolet Sonic, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Based on MSRP, the Mazda Mazda2 is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Sonic. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda Mazda2 and the Chevrolet Sonic have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mazda Mazda2 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Sonic, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mazda Mazda2 is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Sonic, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Mazda Mazda2 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Sonic, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mazda Mazda2 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Sonic, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda Mazda2 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Sonic. 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 Mazda Mazda2 and the Chevrolet Sonic. The Mazda Mazda2 has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Sonic, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Mazda Mazda2 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Sonic.
