The Chevy Sonic continues to be our favorite subcompact on the market when it comes to the fun-to-drive factor, especially in hatchback form. Now we're even more pleased to see an increased level of safety equipment on the 2014 model.


Available equipment includes a rear-vision camera, Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Departure Warning. When activated, Forward Collision Alert warns drivers if they are approaching a vehicle too quickly with visual and audio alerts.


Lane Departure Warning gives an alert when the vehicle veers from a marked roadway lane, and the rear-vision camera, enabled by the MyLink 7-inch display, helps give drivers a clearer view of objects behind the vehicle.
