While its name suggests an ability to break the sound barrier, in reality the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic's performance is closer to Sega's zippy blue hedgehog than Chuck Yeager's Bell X-1. The Sonic is a surprisingly sprightly urban runabout when fitted with the available turbocharged engine and manual transmission. In sporty RS trim, it also remains remarkably well composed when thrown around tight corners. We also like the Sonic's relatively roomy cabin, which has ample space for tall front seat occupants and more head-, foot- and knee room for rear seat passengers than you might expect.
