In spite of an aging platform, Chevrolet's subcompact sedan and hatchback are formidable players in the segment.
The Chevrolet Sonic slides into 2019 with no major changes aside from the deletion of an engine option.
All Sonics are powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque.
The Sonic comes in sedan form, too, offering 14.9 cubic feet of trunk space.
Base prices for the Sonic range from $15,420 to $21,595.
With a standard 7-inch touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Sonic does just fine in the tech department.
Equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, the Sonic returns an EPA-estimated 28/38 mpg.
Sonics with the six-speed automatic return an estimated 26/34 mpg.
The Sonic hatchback can swallow up to 47.7 cubic feet of your stuff with the rear seats folded.
All Sonics come standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot powered by AT&T, and the first month of data (up to 3GB) is free.
Despite being on the market since the 2012 model year, the Sonic remains one of the more interesting choices in the subcompact class.
