Chevrolet Malaysia has added a new 1.6 litre variant to the Chevrolet Sonic line-up in Malaysia. Available in both sedan and hatchback body styles, the new Sonic LTZ 1.6 is priced at RM86,782.23 OTR with insurance, which is a premium of just under RM8k or so over the 1.4 litre version.

The 1.6 litre engine makes more power of course – 114 hp at 6,000 rpm and 155 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, compared to the 1.4 litre engine’s 100 hp and 130 Nm. Power goes to the front wheels via six-speed automatic transmission. Other than that, the infotainment system has been upgraded to a Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen system.

According to Chevrolet Malaysia, stock availability for the 1.6 litre version is limited for now. You can head over to the Naza World Auto-Mania event running this weekend to have a look at the car and enquire further.
