Beats The Competition
Turbo motor option is quite strong.
Rear seat minder.
Race-tuned manual gearbox upgrade in RS model.
Our Take
Refreshed yet still small, the Sonic features a lot of personality despite being a compact hatch.
Cloth materials and seat positioning borderline on being uncomfortable, with severely limited rear reclining.
For performance fans, the RS version of the Sonic offers a fun alternative to mundane commuter cars.
