Can you flat-tow a Chevy Sonic?

My grandma wants to take her RV across the country, and my mom is insisting Grandma bring along a smaller car to get around easier when she parks the RV. I’m trying to help my grandma find a car that suits this purpose. We’ve been eyeing the Chevy Sonic—can it be flat-towed?

Going cross-country solo in an RV? That’s one brave granny! A Chevrolet Sonic is a great choice for your grandma because according to the owner’s manual, it can be flat-towed with all four wheels on the ground.
Follow these tips for a safe flat-towing experience:
  • Don’t speed. Max towing speed is usually 65 mph.
  • Make sure the lighting system is working properly so other drivers know when you’re braking.
  • Double-check the tires on both the RV and the towed vehicle
  • Properly install your tow bar
