Depends on what year. I towed a 2013 Sonic hatch back, automatic transmission, and it was a good experience. For that year there was one fuse that had to be pulled/bypassed when towing. Roadmaster makes a switch for it. I also used the Roadmaster tow bar and base plate and all was good. If you are looking at a more recent model with things like remote start, consult the owners manual as I’ve heard things are a little different. It is or was a great little tow car.
I swapped the Sonic for a Jeep Wrangler primarily because the Jeep can go more places than the Sonic. We went to Monument Valley as an example and the Sonic could not go through the sand. Your travel destinations may be different.
