My, what a big grille you have!
Staggered quad round headlights an interesting detail.
Long nose, short tail. Directly from the side is the Sonic's worst angle.
Truncated tail looks better from an angle. Dirt saves retinas from bright red paint.
Small rear window. But the Accent's is even smaller.
Big hunk of black plastic "hiding" door handle my least favorite bit of the exterior.
Flat-bottomed steering wheel, metal pedals, red stitching help make the inside of the RS special.
There's a lot going on here. But at least it's not boring!
Everything is close at hand, but a pair of knobs for the audio system would be welcome.
Sport bike-inspired instrument cluster conveys information surprisingly well.
App support good to have, but could be easier to operate. Nav a $50 app.
RS seats are attractive and comfortable, but headrests intrusive and lateral support just okay.
Adults will fit with little room to spare. Typical of the segment.
It's a small car, how much did you expect it to hold?
No magic seat plus truncated tail mean cargo volume is, like the rear seat, typical of the segment.
RS gets 138hp 1.4T engine optional in regular Sonic. Good mid-range, but runs out of breath.
Tiny turbo means very little lag, but also reason engine runs out of breath at high rpm.
