If the Chevy Volt is a little too expensive for your taste, then you might do well to consider the Cheverolet Sonic, which claims to get as much as 40 mpg on the highway, and 29 mpg in the city. This sub-compact car is competing directly with the 2012 Ford Fiesta, providing more horsepower, a sportier look, and an ability to reach 60 mph in 8.2 seconds.
“Sonic changes the sub-compact stereotype and puts an end to the term ‘econobox,’” said Joaquin Nuno-Whelan, Sonic vehicle line director and vehicle chief engineer. “The 1.4L turbo saves money at the gas pump and is a ridiculously fun car to drive. So, our buyers are getting a safe, exciting and fuel efficient car at a great price with the 1.4L turbo.”The suggested retail price of the Sonic begins at $14,495 including destination but excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees.”
