2012 Chevy Sonic HatchbackWhen it comes to compact efficiency, the 2012 Chevy Sonic hatchback is a top contender, especially in the Elgin area. Featuring a competitive sticker price and smart warranty elements, this spirited vehicle has components smart drivers appreciate. Come schedule a test drive at Biggers Chervolet, located at 1385 East Chicago Street in Elgin, IL. This small wonder matches up well against rivals in its class. Here are some facts to think about when comparing the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic hatchback LTZ with the 2012 Nissan Versa hatchback 1.8 SL


Right from the get-go, the Sonic helps buyers save a little extra money. The new Chevy 5-door has an MSRP of $17,365, while the Versa lists at $18,590. When comparing the two vehicles as competitively equipped, the Chevy is priced at $18,160, whereas the Versa comes in just short of the 20k mark at $19,370. In either case, the new Sonic will save motorists a minimum of $1,200 on the initial investment.


Though similarly rated when it comes to a basic warranty, the 2012 Sonic outclasses the 2012 Versa in many respects. Though both powertrain terms have a 5-year span, the Chevrolet car is good for 100,000 miles, whereas the Nissan hatchback is covered for only 60,000 miles. A 40,000 mile difference in favor of the Sonic seems like a noteworthy difference.

Drivers will notice a corresponding disparity when considering the roadside assistance package. Chevrolet provides terms of 5 years/100,000 miles, while Nissan presents 3 years/36,000miles of coverage.

Even more glaring is the fact that the Sonic hatchback comes with a rust warranty of 36,000 miles with a 3-year duration. The Versa 5-door, on the other hand, doesn’t even have this feature. It seems clear that the Chevy Sonic has a smart package to give motorists peace of mind.
