Any vehicle, no matter how big or small, no matter how powerful or sporty, needs to be able to help keep you safe on the road. If a car, truck, or SUV does not help keep you safe, then nothing else about it matters. Fortunately, the 2020 Chevy Sonic is a great car in this department with a wealth of standard and available safety features designed to protect you and your loved ones. While no amount of safety technology can replace careful, attentive driving – great features like these can help you avoid the unthinkable.
Loaded with Airbags
The 2020 Chevy Sonic comes with ten airbags standard in every model regardless of whether you choose a sedan or hatchback and no matter which trim level you go with. It is the first small car in its class to give you that many airbags – far more than you find in a lot of vehicles that are much larger. But this is only the start of how the Sonic helps keep you safe.
Active Safety Features
The suite of standard and available active safety features on the 2020 Sonic is really something special and one of our favorite aspects of this car. They include a rear vision camera, which you would expect, with dynamic guidelines that help assist with parking and similar maneuvers. Available forward collision alert warns you about the risk of an imminent collision and can notify you if you are following a vehicle too closely. There is also an available lane departure warning that lets you know when you are drifting into another lane without signaling.
Available rear park assist alerts you to nearby objects when you are moving in reverse at low speeds, helping you with parking and maneuvering around other items. The 2020 Chevy Sonic comes with hill start assist to help you accelerate from a stop on an incline without rolling backward. Finally, StabiliTrak electronic stability and traction control helps you keep the Sonic under control during sudden, emergency maneuvers, as well as when driving in slippery or hazardous conditions.
