AWARDS & EFFICIENCY

“Most Dependable Small Car” Award – The J.D. Power Dependability Awards are the result of real owners evaluation their 2016 model year vehicles for 177 specific problems over the last 12 months. So when we say that Chevrolet vehicles are dependable, it’s not our words – it’s thousands of yours1.

The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic is surprisingly fuel efficient, getting an EPA estimated 262 MPGs in the city and 342 MPGs on the highway. After all, the average American drives more than 13,000 miles a year - here's to more driving, and less stopping for gas3.

FEATURES

While they're not as popular in more mild areas, in frigid climates many drivers find heated seats, a standard feature on the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic4, quite necessary. If you want heated seats on the 2020 MINI Hardtop 2 Door5, though, you'll have to pay extra for them.

Move forward, back, up, or down with the touch of a button, using the Power Adjustable Seats that come standard on the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic4. Power Adjustable Seats aren't standard on the 2020 MINI Hardtop 2 Door, so be prepared to either pay more, or use that awkward bar under the seat.

Even the most discerning music aficionado is sure to find a channel to enjoy on satellite radio, a standard feature on the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic6... but not on the 2020 MINI Hardtop 2 Door5.
