For 19k, Sonic RS has been a very good purchase. I hope all the issues with the earlier models have been resolved. Good torque off the line, but the turbo xxx nothing after 60 MPH

Fun car to drive

For the price Chevy got it right this car handle well and is peppy for the price. I have the RS and my son has the cruze RS and the little blue sonic out runs his car easy. Love my little blue sonic Its just like the heghog. (LOL)

Super Sonic!

Really great bargain! I got the hatchback LT RS package with the turbo and heated seats. It drives well and the steering is more than happy to take on tight turns at higher rates of speed. Even though the car is light it feels heavily planted to the ground. Yes, there’s an abundance of plastics but you have to really think about what you’re looking for in a car. If it’s agility, practicality, a good price point, let’s of standard tech, and peppy performance then overlook the interior and look at the vehicle as a whole.
