At the heart of Chevrolet Sonic RS is a standart Ecotec 1.4L turbo engine producing power output of 138 hp and 148 lb.-ft. (200 Nm) of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Unique gear ratios for the six-speed manual transmission and unique final drive ratio for the automatic give the Sonic RS a sportier feel than non-RS models.

More equipments that makes Chevy Sonic RS even more sportier includes MacPherson strut front suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar and a semi independent, torsion beam axle-mount compound link-type rear suspension. The new RS is the only Sonic model offered with four-wheel disc brakes, which are partnered with a four-channel anti-lock braking system. Electric power steering also comes as standard equipment.
