The new Chevy Sonic provides greater rear head- and legroom, meaning backseat passengers will be able to have more stretching space in the Sonic than the Kia Rio. The Chevy Sonic also provides you with the right combination of spirited power, responsiveness, and is rated at an EPA-estimated 40 MPG highway when outfitted with the ECOTEC® Turbo 1.4L engine compared to the 1.6L DOHC 16-valve engine with Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) that is the sole engine available in the Rio. Finally, only the 2017 Chevy comes standard with built-in 4G LTE WiFi and smartphone integration through Chevrolet Mylink.
