The 2014 Chevy Sonic Turbo and the 2014 Ford Fiesta are small economy cars that almost directly compete.
Of course the difference is that the Fiesta is normally aspirated while the sonic has a small turbo.
How does this effect a cars performance when the road gets steep, the altitude get serious and the car is loaded to the rafters with with people?
From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That’s enough elevation and grade to test a small economy car like the 2014 2014 Ford Fiesta and the Chevy Sonic Turbo.
In Part 2 of another accurate, informative and fun TFLcar mashup review Nathan, Emme, Andre and Roman take on the Ike Gauntlet in the new 2014 Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic Turbo to see how these small cars handle the steep grade and lack of air density in the Mountains of Colorado.
