As GM’s entry-level brand, Chevrolet probably has the most ferocious competition of all of the General’s divisions. Practically every model flashing the gold bowtie competes in the most hotly contested segments of the automotive marketplace.
Think about it; Malibu is up against Camry and Accord, Cruze is up against Civic and Corolla, and Silverado must do battle with F-150. Meanwhile, the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic is tasked with facing down Honda’s Fit, Hyundai’s Accent, Kia’s Rio, and Ford’s Fiesta.
For the 2016 model year, Sonic offers Chevy MyLink as standard on all but the LS trim package. The manual transmission has been dropped from the LTZ roster of features, as has the CD player across the board.
