The 2018 Chevy Sonic is available as a five-door hatch.

If hatches aren't your thing, you can get the Sonic as a sedan.

The hatchback looks way better, though.

You can get both Sonics with the sporty-looking RS package.

Both body styles have a nicely appointed interior, too.

The instrument cluster looks a bit outdated, but then again, the Sonic isn't exactly a brand spankin' new car.
