Power Options and their Performance Ratio

The 2019 Chevrolet Sonic can be best described as a little car that is made for driving fun, especially for those who have opted for the turbocharged power. but that doesn’t indicate that the other engine options aren’t up to the mark.

Chevrolet has given its flagship model 2019 Sonic the power of two engine options, both of different capacities with 4-cylinders. Among them one comes with a 1.8-liter capacity of naturally aspirated engine while the other gets a turbocharger engine but with only 1.4 liters capacity. But if you have driven both, you are probably going to ask for the turbocharged engine, that is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission to derive more driving thrill, but Chevrolet also offers an option to pair it with a 6-speed automatic transmission as well, for those lazy drivers.

The base engine is the one with the 1.8-liter engine that come as a naturally-aspirated four-cylinder, which is enough to make a 138 count of horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, mostly configured as front-wheel drives.

The other option is the 1.4-liter turbo-4 one that nets in an additional 23 pound-feet count of torque but with the same horsepower. But some buyers prefer this engine as it brings with it a manual gearbox option. The turbocharged engine also can boast of a perkier acceleration without causing any penalty for the fuel economy.

Among the segment of subcompact cars, the 2019 Chevrolet Sonic is necessarily a fun to drive vehicle that ensures a sturdy material support to maintain the brand quality and that also helps in achieving a highly controlled ride with a responsive steering. Thanks should also go for its good weighting that outshines the weightage of its rivals.
