Kelley Blue Book names Sonic “One of the Top Ten Coolest Cars Under $18,000”

  • g+1

According to Kelley Blue Book the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic is one of the more fun subcompact vehicles to drive, so naturally they named Sonic “One of the Top Ten Coolest Cars Under $18,000.” Maybe being cool has something to do with its dual-cockpit interior and motorcycle-inspired instrument cluster with Graphite Silver accents.

Maybe it’s the available ECOTEC® 1.4L I4 turbocharged engine which offers you 40 MPG, offering a maximum range of up to 488 highway miles on a single tank of gas. It could be the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi available in the 2015 models - a Wi-Fi that offers a stronger connection than your mobile device and can be used with almost any compatible device, even a laptop.

Maybe Sonic’s cool comes from its advanced technology. Available Chevrolet MyLink starts with a 7-inch diagonal full-color display that lets you stay in touch in style. The touch-screen menu connects you to all of your infotainment needs with a connection to your phone or apps like Sirius XM, Siri Eyes Free and TuneIn global radio. The OnStar RemoteLink®† app gives you access to features such as factory installed remote start as well as locking and unlocking – even miles away from your vehicle.

Any way you look at it the 2014 Sonic definitely has an urban edge, but it’s also made for comfort. The seats were designed for you and your friends to sit back and enjoy the ride. Go ahead, grab the 3-spoke steering wheel and head off for a comfortably cool adventure to anywhere.
