2013 Chevy Sonic vs. 2013 Ford Fiesta

CHEVYSC12As the preferences of American drivers continue to shift towards sleeker, smaller cars with greater fuel efficiency, the field of subcompacts grows more crowded with each passing year. Here at Biggers Chevrolet, we have seen one car emerge triumphantly from the muck to provide better power, comfort, safety, and value: the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic. The Sonic is the ideal towards which the competition is continually striving ? but why settle for one of those when you can have the real deal? If you’re a Schaumburg or Elgin driver doing some research on the Sonic, you may have taken a look at competitor Ford’s Fiesta. Let’s see how they stack up.

Bigger on the Inside

Though you may be looking for a car that gets better mileage and is more adaptable to urban driving, that doesn’t mean that you want to be crammed inside like sardines. Compared to the Fiesta, the Chevy Sonic offers extra inches of room in a number of areas, including rear head room, front and rear hip room, front and rear shoulder room, and rear leg room. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to have comfort in a (sub)compact package, and the Sonic has the clear advantage here.

Full-Featured Fun

Some car companies seem to think that if you’re buying a subcompact, you don’t really care about the added convenience and enjoyment that comes with a full compliment of features. With Chevy, that isn’t the case. You’ll get more standard and optional features than the competition across the board. Case in point, the Chevy Sonic comes standard with steering wheel-mounted audio controls, Bluetooth connectivity, an onboard handsfree communications system, passenger visor vanity mirror, and rear reading lamps. These features aren’t even options on the Fiesta! And you can upgrade the audio system on your Chevy Sonic with satellite radio, also unavailable with Ford. When it comes to features, the Sonic easily trumps the competition.
