Fuel Efficiency, American Style

2015 Chevrolet Sonic
33 mpg
Price: Starting at $14,245
For a couple thousand dollars more than the Chevy Spark, buyers can get a bit more space and power in the Chevrolet Sonic. Another attractive small car offering from General Motors, the Sonic is available as a sedan or 5-door hatchback. Two engines are available; the most fuel efficient being a small 1.4-liter turbo that puts out 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque for zippy performance. There’s space for five inside, although one of the five will need to be diminutive. The best sign of success: GM says almost half of Sonic buyers trade in a non-GM vehicle.

One thought on “Fuel Efficiency, American Style

  1. You think 550-mile range would be bladder-busting? How about 60 miles for this old lady?
    Those were a nice range of vehicles, price-wise and size-wise. The smallest were the neatest looking.
