KBB.com Names Chevy Sonic One of the Best Used Subcompact Cars

Chevrolet Sonic | Ft Worth, TX

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly car — whether to use as your main vehicle, a second car for your family, or even a first car for a teen driver — consider a subcompact car or hatchback. Subcompacts are easy to maneuver, super fuel-efficient, and the most affordable cars you can get when you buy used.

KBB.com has released its list of the 10 Best Used Subcompact Cars Under $10,000, and the 2016 Chevy Sonic placed high on the list. KBB noted the availability of different engine options and the technology on the Chevy Sonic that make it a great choice for drivers in search of a small car.

There is a lot to choose from when you buy a used Chevy Sonic. Besides the two engines, which include the base 1.8-liter four-cylinder and an available 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, the 2016 Sonic comes in four trim levels with exciting amenities at every trim.

The base LS trim, for example, delivers convenience with keyless entry, while the LT comes with a 7-inch touch screen. The LTZ trim gets you heated front seats, a feature you might not expect on a small, affordable car. And the highest trim, the RS, adds leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel for a luxurious touch.

U.S. News & World Report’s list of the “12 Most Comfortable SUVs of 2021” included two Chevrolet vehicles, affirming the automaker’s dedication towards building family-friendly vehicles that emphasize a welcoming, cozy, and convenient interior.

2021 Chevrolet Suburban

This full-size SUV offers up to 144.7 cubic feet of cargo space. But its ample room wasn’t the only thing attracting it to the judges at U.S. News. Soft-touch surfaces complete with metal accents give the SUV a modern yet comfortable atmosphere. Meanwhile, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and an available 4G LTE® Wi-Fi Hotspot help keep everyone entertained on long trips.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse

The 2021 Traverse is a mid-size SUV that impressed the judges with its spacious seats across all three rows and its best-in-class cargo space, which is up to 98.2 cubic feet. The Traverse can tow up to 5,000 pounds and still achieves 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, ensuring that you and your family won’t be making constant stops to refuel.* The hidden storage within the 2021 Traverse reduces clutter and adds convenience while the available hands-free power liftgate makes it easier than ever for busy parents to load and unload the cargo area.

Here at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, we’re excited to learn that the 2021 Suburban and 2021 Traverse impressed the judges for their interior designs and amenities.

Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe RST Models are the Fastest-Selling Trims of Both Vehicles

Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe RST Models are the Fastest-Selling Trims of Both Vehicles | Fort Worth, TX

Here at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe are two of our best-selling vehicles. What our customers may not realize is just how quickly the “RST” models of these vehicles are driven off the lot after arriving.

Chevrolet recently revealed that the Chevrolet Tahoe RST and Chevrolet Suburban RST only stay on dealership lots for an average of 18 days, making them the fastest-selling trims of both vehicles.

By comparison, the average time that a new vehicle spends on a dealership lot is about 60 days. The Tahoe RST and Suburban RST manage to sell out much faster than that.

So, what makes the RST trims of both vehicles so desirable? With exclusive features like a monochromatic Black grille with Black Ice accents and 22-inch bright machined high-gloss Black-painted aluminum wheels, these models give both the Suburban and Tahoe a sleek and streamlined look.

Others versions of the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe have also managed to sell very well. During the fourth quarter of last year, Chevrolet sold 28,698 units of the Tahoe, a sales increase of 36.1 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. The Suburban also saw a sales increase of 32.56 percent for a total of 13,577 units sold in 2020’s fourth quarter.

If you want a Chevrolet Tahoe RST or Suburban RST, we suggest you stop by Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet and pick up one of your own before they sell out.
