With its new and refreshed styling, advanced technology equipment and classy interior, the new 2017 Chevrolet Sonic will be one of the top choices in the small car category. This car made its debut last month at the New York Auto Show and potential shoppers are able to select between a sedan and hatchback version. In my opinion, the new Sonic will certainly attract young people, and it is one of the goals of the manufacturer, to expand the circle of interested buyers. As for the competition, there is Ford Fiesta and Japanese small car, the Honda Fit.
