2015 Chevy Sonic Updates: The Discontinued
We’re saying goodbye to a lot we liked about the Sonic (but don’t worry, we’ve got some awesome goodies added on that we’ll go over in the next section). Perhaps most frustrating is the disappearance of the Blind Spot Mirrors. Also being discontinued are three exterior colors that we really liked: Deep Magenta Metallic, Cool Blue, and Blue Topaz Metallic. In addition, the base UH7 AM/FM stereo with CD player will be disappearing, and LS models will no longer include Chevy MyLink radio.
2015 Chevy Sonic Updates: The Additions
While we might be giving up some beloved features for the 2015 Sonic, we’re certainly also seeing some additions that we really like. A seemingly unfair trade for the three exterior colors lost is just on exterior color gained: Blue Velvet Metallic. On top of that, drivers will get OnStar Generation 10 hardware, which, of course, includes 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hotspot capability. Another bonus is the Dragon Green Promotional Package.

Customers will no longer be able to order extra-cost exterior colors on the LS models, but 16” Silver-painted aluminum wheels will now be standard equipment for the LT 5-door with the Fun and Sun Package. In addition, a turbo 1.4-liter engine will now be standard on LTZ models.
