2018 Chevy Sonic RS Hatchback

Saturday, April 15th 2017. | Chevrolet


Anticipated to come out with a complete redesign and reengineered performance, the new 2018 Chevy Sonic will keep the five-year nameplate. It is a favorite vehicle on the global market for more than 15 years as a small and subcompact car. Its international name is Chevrolet Aveo. Later, GM provided Sonic nameplate for specific markets such as Mexico, Middle East, North America and more. Rumors mentioned that the company has a plan to release it with a complete redesign and several changes for all aspects.

There will be plenty of changes to provide. Current reports mentioned that they do not give any remarkable changes. It will be a smaller model of GM with shorter production cycle compared to their bigger models. It is possible to get a redesign with a new platform and larger dimension to complete its new look as 2018 Chevy Sonic. It is suggested to have some weight savings with the support of lightweight materials. They only provide two body styles which will be the four-door sedan and the five-door hatchback.

The higher level of comfort will be the primary focus to complete the cabin changes. This new 2018 Chevy Sonic has more attractive look with the latest design language from GM. The larger dimensions will allow more space inside. We do hope that they will work for a new styling cabin with many new advanced features.

So far, they gave two engines for the current model. The first was the 1.8 liter that was capable of providing about 138 hp and the second was 1.4 liter to work for 140 hp. These engines are still unknown especially for their destiny whether the company will keep them again or not for 2018 Chevy Sonic. However, there is a significant indication that one will be discontinued. We bet it will be the 1.8-liter unit. We assumed that there would be a new smaller 1.5-liter engine that is pretty good to generate about 160 hp and 185 pound-feet of torque power.

2018 Chevy Sonic Release Date and Price

2018 Chevy Sonic is still in the development process, no final announcement has been made. We expect to see its arrival on the market somewhere in the second half of next year.  The price tag for the base model around $15,000. The price is quite affordable for most people with its exciting features that wouldn’t make you disappointed if you need a cheap car that doesn’t make you get bored inside.
