Default Chevy Sonic officially rated 5.9 L/100 km, earns Top Safety Pick w. Vid



General Motors was proud to show off a bit of recent crash testing done with its 2012 Chevrolet Sonic, and for good reason, too. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has officially highlighted the subcompact cruiser as a Top Safety Pick. To qualify, the Sonic needed to earn 'Good' scores in Frontal Offset, Side Impact and Roof Strength tests. Non-spoiler alert: it earned A-plus marks across the board.

Besides being a small cocoon of safety, Chevrolet is happy to report that the Sonic has a 5.9 L/100 km highway fuel economy rating. The 2012 Sonic utilizes its turbocharged 138-horsepower 1.4-litre engine and six-speed manual transmission to hit the estimated 5.9 L/100 km on the highway and it will return 8.1 L/100 km around town.
