2017 Chevrolet Sonic Performance
The hatchback are powered by a 1.8 L 4-cylinder Ecotec engine or an Ecotec 1.4 L turbocharged mill. Both engines produce 138 hp. However, the turbocharged engine produces 148 lb-ft of torque compared to 125 lb-ft of torque produced by the 1.8 L engine. There are no official EPA ratings as of this writing but since there are no significant changes on the drive-trains; we expect the engine to retain the 2016 model’s ratings. The 1.8 L engine currently returns a combined fuel efficiency of 30 mpg while the turbocharger is more frugal at a 33 mpg on combined drives.
