But the Focus is so much better that it’s definitely the way to go if you can afford it. My wife’s MR2 has staggered 15″ rims, and its nearly impossible to find performance tires to fit both the front and rear. Back seat is pretty small but the car is small do that is expected. The useless rear seat room is a show-stopper for me; they could have made a much better-looking two-seater with this platform. The chassis might be pretty good. The Sonic is a decidedly decent compact hatchback. They was right thinking it had a taste of something from Germany. For that it would need at least a more upscale interior. Also, this is not the trim that others will review much since they tend to review higher trims. The seats are comfortable, the car is fast and the turbo is very useful. Pre-teen children in back will enjoy a fine view of treetops and clouds. Also, I have to say AB’s reviews are complimentary of pretty much anything they’re given these days. This brings decent performance over a broad range — it runs to 100 kilometres an hour in 10.8 seconds, which is par for the segment. The powertrain already proved itself underwhelming in the Cruz. And your backseat passenger has about six inches of open air and thin glass separating the back of their head from the grill of that pickup truck behind you. It turns on a dime and handles better than the sonic. Sorry, I’ll pass. Even though it’s not a bad deal ($700 for the turbo motor and 6 speed manual) I don’t know if I’d spring for it. But who would want an engine like that when a better design is to drive the water pump with the accessory belt so you don’t even have to think about touching it until it leaks, and when it does you can easily change it yourself in a couple of hours. Move rearward and the bench seat will accommodate two adults acceptably well. Soon automakers will offer both rearward view AND forward view cameras in their Navi systems. This is no different than Chrysler offering 20s on its base model Charger, or Chevy offering 22s on its pickups. At least there won’t be any “strippers” running around with cheesy wheel covers that look like they were pressed from aluminum pie tins, yeah I’m looking at you Fiesta (on base S and mid-level SE models no less). 365 Bloor St East, Toronto, ON, M4W3L4, www.postmedia.com. The noise can be loud but I got used to it. The driving position looks to be as airy as a coffin. Class segment busting or leading on many fronts. This powertrain could be just as bad in the Cruze as it is in the Sonic. I don’t see GM being the company that is going to give you standard forged wheels on a $14K car. Overall the sonic is a reliable car. I’m interested in hearing more about how this theory works. Most likely it will be a value case that GM is making but its hard to make that case when a basic LT automatic is $17.5K and for another grand you can get an Elantra GLS with preferred package that not only has more room but also gets better mileage and has a better warranty. Problem solved. Just sayin’, so you’ll know it weren’t for nuthin’; at least one of us Gadarenes appreciate that little pearl. Perhaps its only pitfall is that it can get expensive if you load it up with the options needed to bring the very best out of it. I kept my 3rd other car for “Sunday rides”. Yeah I’ve priced the 2 Fords…in Canada, the Fiesta SES 5-speed is only about $15/month cheaper than the Focus SE with 5-speed and sport package. There are a lot of cars at $25k that are MUCH better than the Sonic, but if your budget is $16-18k tops, then you arent going to look at $25k cars. I wonder if the bolt patern is shared with any companies that know how to make cars. Kudos to GM for making a telescoping steering wheel standard—most competitors don’t offer one. It is designed to be a safe car that still looks 'cool'. No one pays MSRP, but that’s the apples to apples comparison that the article is making. Thanks again for reviewing a trim level that a lot of us most likely will encounter. It’s optioned like the rental car special. Nice point. In this flash mob, why buy a Sonic? The solution for all of these powertrain woes? In other words, we won’t be able to give you a definitive review until we get more time in a finished production car.”. If still any doubts, Just go to the Chevy dealer and take one for a spin and wear jeans so you can get under it (or talk the service dept to put it on a rack).
