Proudly Serving Florence, KY

When it comes to driving a fuel-efficient and versatile car, the 2019 Toyota Corolla and the 2019 Chevy Sonic are top-selling models that are well-known rivals of one another. Anyone who is looking to own a reliable vehicle that can be used for traveling or daily commuting can consider both options for their next car. Here are some of the top features to compare between the 2019 Toyota Corolla and the 2019 Chevy Sonic.


The new Toyota Corolla proves to be a well-mannered car that is equipped with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder matched with a CVT and generates 132 horsepower. The gas mileage is efficient and gets 1 to 2 mpg more than most models in its class. It's tidy handling with real sporting intentions makes it have a bit of added edge while still feeling composed. The car doesn't delay when it comes to accelerating or tackling inclines and feels planted on the road.

Driving the new 2019 Chevy Sonic means getting sufficient power under the hood with a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is paired with front-wheel drive. Unfortunately, the manual gearbox is clunky compared to what you'll get with the Corolla. Athletic handling is offered with the model, along with good steering, which makes it a spirited car. Too much tire noise and a harsh ride due to the inadequate suspension system can make driving the Sonic challenging.

Exterior Styling

The exterior of the 2019 Corolla is hard to miss due to its front bumper that protrudes from the car and adds a touch of edge to the body. Swift curves are present on the body, which allows the car to appear both modern and elegant for a midsize sedan. The rear tail lights feature pink and red color shades that are bold but aren't overly flashy. The wide grille is thin and connects to both headlights.

The 2019 Chevy Sonic has subpar styling that looks awkward. The taillights are large and mimic something you'd see on a luxury vehicle but end up looking cheap. The front of the car is bland and lacks any notable details. The grille also features a significant amount of plastic, which makes the Corolla appear to have more value.

Interior Features

Inside the 2019 Toyota Corolla, drivers will find standard features that include Siri Eyes Free, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, a USB port, voice recognition, and six speakers. Those who want a few extra upgrades can select the satellite radio, a 7-inch touchscreen, a moonroof, automatic climate control, push-button start, a proximity key, navigation, and an HD radio. Driver assistant features that are standard include a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, pedestrian detection, and lane departure alert with steering assist.

Interior features to take advantage of in the new Sonic include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with a four-speaker stereo, USB ports, a rearview camera, push-button start, remote start, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, proximity keyless entry, a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Cheap plastic is abundant in the cabin and make the space feel less luxurious compared to the Corolla, along with thick roof pillars that reduce the amount of visibility that is present.
