2015 Chevrolet Sonic Preview

What will change? Maybe some trim and features. These subcompact sedans and hatchbacks came to America for model-year 2012, and the next all-new versions probably won’t appear before model-year 2017. That suggests the possibility of a minor facelift to keep them fresh in the interim.

Why wait for the 2015 Chevrolet Sonic? To get the latest styling and equipment. Appearance changes aren’t likely to amount to more than a reshaped grille, front bumper, and headlights. Different cabin-surface textures and perhaps new taillamp lenses could round-out the updates. Chevy probably won’t introduce major new features, but could expand availability of such items as the rearview camera to the least-expensive Sonic model.

Why buy a 2014 Chevrolet Sonic? To get a surprisingly likable little car before Chevy raises the price without making substantive changes. The 2014 Sonic almost certainly will have the same powertrains, interior dimensions, and trim levels as the 2015. Long-term resale value hardly would be affected by anything planned for model-year 2015. But dealers are apt to offer discounts to clear inventories to make way for the facelifted models. Take advantage.
