With its outstanding EPA rating and lively road manners, a used Chevrolet Sonic RS should be at the top of your list when considering a new-to-you car.
The 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder under the hood is ready for adventure, cranking out 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. This eager powertrain presents a stellar fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.
Sitting on a 6-speed automatic transmission, the Sonic RS delivers quick responses, even during intense acceleration. According to an Edmunds review, merging and passing in highway traffic is both fun and stress-free.
Amongst its subcompact competitors, the Sonic RS offers superior driving manners that you would expect to find in European cars. Steering is evenly weighted, even around hairpin turns. The RS also comes with a firmly tuned suspension, which tightens up handling, creating a sporty feel that all driving enthusiasts will enjoy. Even with the crisper maneuvering, this compact car provides a comfortable and smooth ride for all those on board.
