Video A 300HP Chevy Sonic Makes No Sense (Big Turbo Chevy Sonic)

Video Chevy ✅ What is the most overlooked hot hatch platform of all time? The Chevy Sonic might arguably be one of the contenders. With its 1.4 turbocharged 4 cylinder engine the Chevy Sonic RS was one weird decision by Chevorlet. From being in the fourth transformers movie to a rental car, the Sonic was a jack of all trades. ZZperformance with their engineering skills developed a big turbo upgrade for the Chevy Sonic – and honestly I can’t even describe it… but I can show you. So let’s for a drive and take a rip in a 300HP Chevy Sonic! ✅ A 300HP Chevy Sonic Makes No Sense (Big Turbo Chevy Sonic)

0:00
when you think of the words hot hatch
0:02
what do you think about the Volkswagen
0:04
GTI the Focus RS the Mazda Speed 3 the
0:08
Chevy Sonic yes the turbocharged 1.4
0:12
liter Chevy Sonic this thing is freaking
0:16
weird but ZZ performance took it upon
0:18
themselves to make the Sonic a true
0:20
tuner platform this one here makes
0:23
almost 300 wheel horsepower this tiny
0:27
little thing and honestly this thing was
0:29
incredibly surprising after not knowing
0:32
what to expect so what’s it like driving
0:34
a 300 horsepower little Chevy Sonic
0:37
let’s go for a drive and find out
0:39
[Music]
0:44
foreign
0:49
oh my God today ladies and gentlemen we
0:52
are in Azizi performance Chevy Sonic now
0:56
this is the 1.4 liter four-cylinder
0:58
Turbo with a z04 Turbo upgrade so
1:02
basically in a nutshell it’s a big turbo
1:04
Chevy Sonic that makes almost 300
1:07
horsepower it’s like
1:09
292 to the wheels let’s just round up
1:12
and say 300 because it sounds cooler
1:14
plus it’s basically there
1:24
also question for you guys what other
1:26
four-cylinder turbo car in the world do
1:29
you think didn’t get a proper chance in
1:31
the aftermarket I think that’s a fun
1:33
topic so let me know in the comment
1:35
section below the Chevy Sonic has always
1:37
been kind of a conundrum to me to me
1:40
Chevy kind of gave the impression that
1:42
they wanted this to be like a hot hatch
1:44
tuner car but then they kind of just
1:48
gave up unless you were zzp who has done
1:52
an amazing job giving support to this
1:54
thing this was in Transformers as a
1:57
rally car they had this cool like WRC
1:59
widebody on it and Chevy really made it
2:02
out to be like this fun little hot hatch
2:05
but then I guess it just didn’t take off
2:08
as much as they thought the aftermarket
2:11
for this is extremely limited basically
2:14
ZZ performance does all the motor mods
2:16
colder intake stuff like that suspension
2:19
all of that good stuff is all from zcp
2:21
when it comes to functionality of this
2:23
car it also has the beautiful rotiform
2:26
Wheels I’m an absolute sucker for
2:28
rotiforms also I love the wrap on this
2:31
car I love the kind of
2:33
synthwave purples and teals on it it’s a
2:36
really cool look this has the full
2:37
interior the steering wheel is very much
2:40
like the Camaro from the first gen
2:43
Camaro uh when I say first gen I mean
2:46
the one from the 2010s the dashboard is
2:49
surprisingly cool it has this digital
2:51
gauge that look it’s not amazing but
2:55
it’s not TI-84 calculator right but I
2:58
kind of like the blue lighting it gives
3:00
off in the tachometer next to the RS
3:03
symbol is like hey
3:04
this is a fun car to drive look at the
3:07
tachometer the steering wheel has a nice
3:09
grip to it it’s not too much of a Lego
3:11
hand we also have our AFR gauge boost
3:14
gauge all that from zzp that really
3:16
helps out
3:19
this thing okay that was a roll-on from
3:22
third and I was legitimately surprised
3:25
so
3:26
I’m actually really excited to get on
3:28
this car but let’s talk like livability
3:30
the Sonic
3:32
doesn’t have a lot of space the back
3:34
seat is extremely tiny a lot of people
3:37
get the Chevy Spark and the Chevy Sonic
3:39
confused for a good reason I mean
3:42
they’re this different looking and the
3:45
spark went on to be a notorious rental
3:48
car by notorious I mean not good this is
3:52
a manual transmission that’s amazing
3:55
this has the six-speed transmission the
3:57
1.4 liter is actually very Stout this is
4:00
also on E85 to get those horsepower
4:02
numbers lately I’ve been driving cars
4:04
from the 2-liter ecotecs this is the 1.4
4:10
oh my God okay I really did not expect
4:14
that from this car
4:16
at all also the Sonic has this massive
4:21
Grille I mean it takes up the entire
4:23
front of the car but then the headlights
4:25
are like really angry and cool looking
4:28
it’s just this weird Paradox like this
4:30
little economy car that has a turbo
4:32
charger on it but then it has angry face
4:40
traction control is off
4:44
[Music]
4:51
what the
4:53
what
5:08
that is incredibly impressive the zzp
5:11
guys were like hunt for the rev limiter
5:13
have fun just go for it and let the car
5:16
eat just let it do it and that’s what
5:18
makes this thing so fun so this thing’s
5:20
front-wheel drive but it’s one of those
5:22
cars that
5:24
the front wheel drive makes it fun it
5:27
doesn’t have crazy torque steer it
5:29
doesn’t have any of that scary drama
5:31
from a fast front-wheel drive car it
5:33
tracks dead straight but that’s also
5:35
probably from a fantastic alignment and
5:38
everything else but the shifter is
5:40
surprisingly nice I like how it feels
5:43
feels a lot like the kobold SS it shifts
5:45
into place I know exactly when I’m in
5:47
gear I know exactly when to go to the
5:49
next gear and this is just so weird but
5:53
the 85 you can tell is so helpful with
5:56
this engine it just runs so smooth
6:03
my God
6:14
but you know this is still a victim of
6:18
an entire hard plastic interior this is
6:22
one of the most unexpected
6:24
times I’ve ever had in a car for sure
6:27
it’s definitely up there so you’re
6:29
working it in a very particular way
6:31
getting it around the corner because
6:33
you’re modulating throttle while also
6:36
steering another direction to fight a
6:38
little bit of torque steer ah it’s so
6:41
weird the one advantage of this car as
6:44
well is that you can get on it pretty
6:46
much all the time and you’re not
6:49
bothering everybody
6:50
you are the one having fun
6:56
and everyone else is like there’s no way
6:59
it was that little hot that little thing
7:01
that little Chevy thing there’s no way
7:03
so it kind of adds this little sleeper
7:05
status to it I think we’re getting to
7:07
the time where cars is a hobby is just
7:11
so expensive right now and what I kind
7:14
of like about zzp’s philosophy is one of
7:17
their sayings is go fast but not broke
7:19
because they take platforms that are
7:22
overall even in the used Market
7:26
affordable they’re really fun to drive
7:29
like this car is really fun to drive it
7:33
doesn’t feel like one of those things
7:34
where oh yeah they say it makes 300 and
7:38
not really it doesn’t really feel like
7:40
it this makes every bit of 300
7:42
horsepower
7:46
you’re watching this from Grand Rapids
7:48
Michigan I just saw like 50 mopeds in a
7:52
row like a squad seats are
7:57
a little big look a little big but
7:59
they’re comfy not the most bolstered in
8:01
the world but they’re comfy
8:08
that is so cool
8:12
it’s really fun to floor it right
8:15
because you get the rev limiter and the
8:18
spinning and the drama but it’s almost
8:20
more fun just driving it around town
8:23
because it has this character this
8:26
personality that’s hard to find in a lot
8:29
of cars today that’s hard to find in
8:31
this charming little pot hatch it was
8:34
always weird how on the door the door
8:36
handles are like all the way up top next
8:37
to the window I always thought that was
8:39
interesting
8:48
so the same company that took the Chevy
8:50
Cobalt SS and made it fast
8:52
the same company that put an extra wheel
8:56
on a Polaris Slingshot and turbo charged
8:58
it
9:08
and the same company that made
9:11
the Chevy Sonic
9:15
have character what a portfolio
9:18
amazing amazing I love aftermarket
9:22
companies who do these really weird and
9:25
Niche ideas and zzp is never scared of
9:28
the challenge I that’s why I admire them
9:30
is they’ve been around a while but
9:32
they’ve always kind of stepped up to the
9:34
plate to these very weird platforms they
9:36
have the world’s fastest GTP a Pontiac
9:40
Grand Prix and then they take this
9:43
little 1.4 layer and go we can work with
9:46
that we can make it work
9:49
[Music]
9:54
insane a 40 roll is the most fun in this
9:58
car
9:59
that is the most fun in this car
10:07
you can’t resist driving this car fast
10:11
it’s so usable I can just be an idiot
10:14
everywhere it’s amazing like this is why
10:18
big horsepower is not always the answer
10:21
people this is why Driving Experience
10:24
always wins can be a course by our cars
10:27
be fun of course they can but do they
10:29
break a lot and is there a lot to keep
10:31
up with and are they terrifying
10:34
sometimes yes you could drive this every
10:36
day and just be smiling that’s what’s
10:39
awesome about it oh I have like a
10:40
armrest
10:42
did just noticed that Big Turbo Chevy
10:45
