Sonic vs Fiesta

Vs Ford Fiesta



“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.


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 2019 Ford Fiesta5, 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 2019 Ford Fiesta, so be prepared to either pay more, or use that awkward bar under the seat.

No more parallel parking jitters - the optional Rear Parking Aid on the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic6 can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2019 Ford Fiesta, which doesn't have a rear parking aid option.

The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic2 offers side airbag protection to its rear passengers standard, but that same level of safety isn't even an option on the 2019 Ford Fiesta.
