Compact hatchbacks provides drivers with a small, fuel-efficient vehicle that still has plenty of space for passengers and their gear. Not to mention, the latest models offer high-tech convenience and safety features to enhance the ride. With so many outstanding options to choose from, it’s important for compact hatchback shoppers to compare their top prospects.
Here, buyers can view notable differences and similarities between the 2016 Ford Fiesta and 2016 Chevy Sonic before getting behind the wheel and deciding which one is best suited for them and their lifestyle.
The Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic are powered by 1.6-litre and 1.8-litre inline-4 engines, respectively, and come standard with 5-speed manual transmissions. Despite similar powertrains, however, the Fiesta is able to achieve better city fuel economy than the Sonic. The two models in question are roughly the same size, both offering comfortable seating room for five passengers. In terms of interior features, however, the 2016 Fiesta stands out in more ways than one. The Fiesta comes standard with a USB connection port and an air conditioning system. The 2016 Sonic, on the other hand, only offers a USB port on higher trims and air conditioning is only optional on the base trim. The Fiesta’s standard audio system also has more speakers than the Sonic’s. In the end, which compact hatchback will you choose?
The Ford Fiesta is available in four different trim levels and either hatchback or sedan models. Each configuration offers a unique set of features and capabilities that appeal to a variety of car buyers. On the outside, the Fiesta features a distinctive front grille, sleek hood and character lines, and muscular shaping. The Fiesta’s interior includes a number of standard and available elements designed to improve the in-car experience for all riders. Available interior features include leather-trimmed seats, SYNC 3, navigation system, Intelligent Access with Push Button Start, MyKey, rear view camera, 8-speaker Sony audio system, heated front seats, and much more.
