The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic (pictured above) and Trax share the same platform and technology features, but that’s where the similarities end. Pricing for the Sonic starts at $15,145, while the 2017 Chevrolet Trax starts at $21,000. Chevy offers the Sonic in both sedan and hatchback versions.

In our rankings of subcompact cars, the Sonic is near the top of the class, while the Trax is rated in the lower half of our subcompact SUV rankings. While the Sonic’s best EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 28 mpg in the city and 38 on the highway are low for the subcompact car segment, they easily beat the best the Trax offers – 25 mpg in the city and 33 on the highway.
