Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Sonic offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Yaris. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Sonic and the Toyota Yaris in the front seats.

Convenience
The Toyota Yaris requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Sonic, 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). The Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Yaris. 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 Toyota Yaris.

Since the Chevrolet Sonic is much wider than the Toyota Yaris, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Sonic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Yaris.

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 Toyota Yaris.

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