The 2016, 2018 & 2014 Chevrolet Sonic model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 55% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2016 Sonic. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 20.39 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2018 & 2014 Sonic model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
