Small hatchbacks are a great fit for driving in Calumet City, Homewood, and beyond. If you’re shopping for a new vehicle in this category, you might have come across the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback and the 2017 Nissan Versa Note. Both are leading contenders in the segment, and they could both fit the needs of active Chicagoland drivers. In this comparison, find out which one offers more power, engine options, and standard features.

High-Powered Engines

The small hatchback category is defined by its size and fun-to-drive dynamics. Let’s take a look at the available engines on both of these models:

  • The 2017 Sonic comes with the choice of two engines. They’re both four-cylinder models, and they both put out 138 hp. However, the 1.8L version gets 125 lb-ft of torque, while the turbocharged 1.4L engine gets 148 lb-ft of torque. If you’d like some extra acceleration to get up to speed on Interstate 90, the Sonic has you covered.
  • The 2017 Versa Note comes with one engine. This 4-cylinder 1.6L engine only reaches 109 hp and 107 lb-ft of torque. If you’d like to upgrade to a higher performance engine, you’re out of luck.

As you can see, even the lower performance engine in the Sonic outstrips the Versa Note.

Standard Features

New vehicles these days should come with a certain amount of refinement, and even with all that added power, the Sonic is well equipped. The following features come standard with the LT trim level:

  • SiriusXM Radio
  • OnStar with 4G LTE and Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Remote Vehicle Start
  • Fog Lamps
  • 7” Color Touchscreen

None of those features are included in the base trim of the Versa Note. If you want to add them, you’ll have to pay extra.
