Yeah, I would put it in the same class as the Focus and Mazda 3. Of course, those two have the Mazda Speed 3 and Focus ST that are a whole different level. I guess we'll see if Chevy decides to do a Sonic SS.

Wife hasn't let me drive it yet :(, but I would guess it is a bit more nimble than the Cruze I had. That was a fun little car for a 4-door econobox. I think Chevy hit a home run with the 1.4L turbo/6 speed tranny combo. A nice snap to accelleration and good MPG. However, if it was me I'd have the Focus ST...but it is the wife so if she's happy I'm happy.
