The small sedan segment is famously competitive, so car manufacturers have to offer important features like high-tech connectivity and active safety systems. Both the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic Sedan and the 2017 Kia Rio Sedan could be great candidates for cruising down I-294 near Homewood, but there are a number of differences between the two. See how these leading vehicles compare today!

Premium Features

The Chevy Sonic includes a number of high tech features that the Kia Rio just doesn’t. OnStar 4G LTE connectivity, an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth connectivity, and a seven-inch touchscreen are all included in the base trim. These are key tech features that customers expect in their new vehicles, and the Chevy Sonic doesn’t disappoint.

Standard and Available Safety Features

When it comes to advanced safety features, the winner is clear. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration has given the 2017 Chevy Sonic Sedan a five-star safety rating, while the Kia Rio only managed a four-star overall rating. The Rio received four stars in the front seat, side barrier, driver’s side, and overall front crash ratings. The Chevy Sonic received five stars in all of those categories. In addition, the Sonic can be equipped with a number of active safety features, which are not available in the Rio:

  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Parking Assistant

These available features will help protect you on the streets of Calumet City and Homewood, and the parking assist makes the end of your drive more convenient.
