Not sure if this is a new model for the Sonic, but overall Consumer reports has only been so-so on the Sonic. It isn't loved by owners and gas mileage has been a bit anemic given it only has a 1.4 liter engine. No back seat room is also a no go for me. I'd rather buy a used Vibe than a new Sonic. As I age, I'm going bigger when my Vibe poops out. Although probably not at least 7+ years away from needing a replacement, if I needed a new/used car today, I would be looking at the amazing competition in the small SUV category. Picking a CX-5, RAV-4, CRV, or Forester is practically a no brainer right now. All four are very strong contenders for being some of the best cars on the road.
Live it up: There will be plenty of time to be old when you die.
