2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS First Drive Review & 0-60 MPH Test

 

2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS First Drive Review

The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS is a small turbo-charged pocket rocket that’s fun to drive.

With various upgrades to the  interior, suspension and wheels, the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS has a lot more street cred, at least visually. Chevy wanted The Fast Lane Car to know all about the hard work that went into the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS that makes it a competitor. Mind you, the bracket the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS competes in is inhabited by vehicles like the Volkswagen GTI and Mazdaspeed3… both of which are proven on the street.

We’ve driven the normally aspirated 2012 Chevrolet Sonic and came away impressed. We noted that the chassis was capable of so much more; perhaps Chevy was listening?  The Sonic certainly has the potential, but we don’t even know if  is’t faster than the Sonic Turbo. They both have the same power.

That’s a question that we answer in this first drive review as we drive, test and review the new RS version of the Sonic Turbo in San Francisco.

Of course we don’t just drive the new Sonic RS, we also put it to the the TFLcar real world test 0-60 MPH test. So how fast is the new Sonic RS 0-60 MPH?
