The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV could become the first mainstream electric car, with a 238-mile range and a base price in the high $30,000s before incentives. The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic gets some safety and feature improvements, and should continue to score big on refinement and driving fun.
