Used Ford Fiesta vs Chevrolet Sonic

Here at Dan’s Car World, we want our customers to drive away happy in a quality pre-owned vehicle. Luckily, our lot has an extensive variety of models and brands to choose from! However, that can make choosing your perfect vehicle a challenge. A couple of models that frequently make an appearance on our lot are used Ford Fiestas and Chevrolet Sonics. We love the Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic equally because they are available in sedan and hatchback variations, but they do have some differences that can make one work better for you compared to another driver. While we are more than happy to help you choose the right one for yourself with some facts, we definitely recommend that you come to our sales lot at 1221 Johnson Avenue in Bridgeport to test drive both models!

Both Subcompact Vehicles Offer Fun Rides

The Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic are both considered subcompact vehicles and share similar lengths: 173.5 inches (sedan) and 159.7/160.1 inches (hatchback) for the Fiesta; 173.1 inches (sedan) and 159 inches (hatchback) for the Sonic. If you choose a sedan variation, both models offer ample trunk volumes with the Fiesta offering 12.8 cubic feet and the Sonic giving 14.9 cubic feet. The hatchback variations however, have drastically different maximum cargo volumes. When the rear seats are folded down, the Sonic offers up to 47.7 cubic feet. The Fiesta, on the other hand, only allows up to 25.4 cubic. This is still plenty of room for luggage, equipment, and merchandise, but if you are planning on some big adventures or purchases, the Sonic might work a little better.

Current models of the Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic have several engine options to suit a variety of tastes and needs. The Chevrolet Sonic will have either an ECOTEC 1.8L 4-cylinder or an ECOTEC 1.4L Turbo. Both of these engines reach 138 horsepower. For a little more variation, the Ford Fiesta has 3 choices: a 120 horsepower 1.6L Ti-VCT I-4, 123 horsepower 1.0L EcoBoost I-3, or a 197 horsepower 1.6L Ti-VCT I-4 Turbo EcoBoost. Models from recent years will possess similar engine variations, so no matter which one you choose from our sales lot, you will enjoy a fun ride!

Like we said, we love the Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic equally, but one may work better for you and your needs. We definitely recommend trying out both models on our sales lot in order to decide which one suits you.
