Loading Comparison...


The Chevy Volt is a sleek and rakish compact hatchback that legitimately offers the best of both worlds: As a plug-in hybrid, it can run totally electric for much of everyday driving, with an EPA-rated range of 53 miles, and switches to gas for longer runs.

It’s in the second year of its much improved second generation, and boasts high build quality than what is found on pre-2016 models. Some consumers believe the second year is the sweet spot for a new car, saying any first-year bugs have been worked out while still looking new and sporting the latest technology. The 2017 Volt checks that box.

New Car Test Drive named the Volt Best Commuter Car for 2016.

The only things new for the 2017 Chevrolet Volt are available adaptive cruise control, and a new color. The 2017 Volt only comes as LT and Premier, the latter with more equipment.

The Volt uses two motor-generators to power the front wheels. They get their juice from a lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of 18.4 kilowatt-hours. One thing different about the Volt from most other plug-in hybrids, is that even under full throttle, it doesn’t switch to gas; this means that if you drive it hard under electric power, you won’t get that full 53 miles, because it will use up its charge at a faster pace. On the other hand, it isn’t burning gas when you don’t want it to.

Among plug-in hybrids, that 53-mile range is beaten only by the BMW i3 REx, with 73 miles. But the Volt makes up for it in the gas-driving department, because it has a larger fuel tank and can go farther without refueling, out on the road. The BMW needs to be refueled about every hour, while the Volt can go another 380 miles on its 8.9-gallon fuel tank. There’s almost no comparison anyhow, because the Volt is a real car; the BMW uses a tiny two-cylinder engine that can’t always deliver full power.

The Volt’s internal combustion engine is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder making 101 horsepower. It was a new engine for this second generation, greatly improved. Combined with the motor-generators, the total horsepower is 149 (111 kilowatts), with an impressive 294-pound feet of torque, as much as some V8 pickup trucks. It can accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in eight seconds, putting a knowing smile on your face when you pull up beside a Prius at a stoplight. As the light turns green, roll down your window and shout, “Put that in your Prius pipe and smoke it!”

The Volt’s combined EPA rating, using both electric and fuel power, is 42 miles per gallon; but that’s almost meaningless because it’s hypothetical and theoretical, based on some average person’s combined city-highway driving. An owner who never leaves the city might never spend a penny on fossil fuel. As long as it’s not below freezing outside. The gas engine might not come on under full throttle, but it does when the outside temperature drops below 32 degrees, using fuel to heat the cabin.

Another rating that applies to plug-in hybrids is Miles Per Gallon Equivalent (MPGe), defined as the distance a car can travel electrically on the energy in a gallon of gasoline, if not that gallon itself. The 2017 Volt hits a strong 106 MPGe.

From depleted, it takes nine to twelve hours to fully charge the Volt, using any household 120-volt outlet and the conveniently located charging cable in the car. Using the optional 240-volt Level 2 charging station, that time is cut to four and one-half hours.

Neither the NHTSA nor IIHS have crash-tested the 2017 Volt, which comes standard with 10 airbags and a rearview camera with sharp resolution. The previous generation Volt earned five stars from NHTSA Top Safety Pick from the IIHS, so we can’t imagine this one going backward. Optional safety equipment includes adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist with lane-departure warning, forward-collision warnings, and automatic emergency braking.


The base 2017 Volt LT starts around $34,000 before any incentives, while a fully optioned Volt Premier can exceed $40,000. Volt qualifies for a $7,500 Federal income-tax credit, a $1,500 California purchase rebate, and various other state, local, and corporate incentives.


The Volt is a low, crisp, sleek wedge. Gone and not missed are the slab sides of the previous generation; now there are lines to accent the angularity. The sharp nose sweeps back from the ground, through the headlamps and fenders to the steep windshield and rising window line. It makes the car look like its leaning forward, almost like a sprinter in blocks at the starting line.

But the rear window is steep too, so it doesn’t look cut off at the back. The rear deck is high but not flat, while the liftgate has a single glass panel.

There’s not an actual grille, rather a two-panel design to look like one, using a diagram-like pattern that unfortunately resembles the entry-level Chevy Cruze sedan a bit too much. One might also see the Honda Civic in the Volt’s profile, and Subaru Legacy in the taillamps.


The first-generation Volt tried too hard to be futuristic in the cabin, but this second-generation Volt does a good job of coming back down to Earth. The gimmicks are gone. It’s still a twin-cockpit design, accented in black and silver with some elegance, while two-tone interiors are available for those wanting to make a statement. The quality of the materials is high, and the touch is soft.

The gauges and instruments are easy to read, while the switches and controls are intuitive. Knobs for audio and climate control are conventional, hardware you would expect in a Chevrolet. The crisp resolution of the eight-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash makes it easy and relaxing to view. A power flow diagram is shown there, although it’s really just a thing to satisfy curiosity that wears off on about the second day, though it may be of interest to your passengers.

The front seats are low but the side window deepens at the windshield pillar, giving the effect of a higher seating position. The seats have good bolstering and were comfortable for us after a long day driving.

Headroom and legroom in the rear is okay if not generous, but the side glass narrows back there to accommodate the roofline, making the rear feel tighter than it is. The outboard rear seats are separate and reasonably comfortable buckets, but the center rear seat is compromised by the battery pack underneath. In fact, GM doesn’t call it a seat, they hedge and call it a “seating position” (not unlike “cheese spread” as opposed to actual cheese).The seat is basically just a padded cushion with shoulder belt, and the unlucky passenger there has to spread his feet and straddle the tunnel that contains the batteries.

Rearward visibility for the driver isn’t very good, especially over the shoulder, and also in the rearview mirror, as the sloped single-panel rear window reveals much of the rear deck and blocks the area up against the rear of the car. This makes the excellent standard rearview camera important. The image is crisp and displayed on the 8.0-inch center screen, best we’ve seen in a compact car.

There’s very little wind noise thanks to the sleek aerodynamics. By the same token, the car is so quiet, under engine use at highway speeds, that tire noise is high. The tire rubber is harder for low rolling resistance, to increase fuel mileage, and that makes them louder.

Driving Impressions

The electric power is good, no worries about keeping up. There are switches that reduce the power to extend the range, but even when they’re activated the Volt doesn’t feel stretched, it remains quick and smooth. The second generation shed a couple hundred pounds, and it shows, especially from zero to 30 mph. Unlike some plug-in hybrids, the engine delivers full power from a low speed.

The Volt feels heavy for its size, not lithe, but the center of gravity is low so it corners flat, with decent feel from the electric power steering. It’s easy to drive, if not sporty. It’s calming. It’s lively, enjoyable on twisty roads, with no fuss about much. You can certainly hear the engine at full throttle, but it’s like a remote hum.

The powertrain allows both motors to power the front wheels together, or one motor to drive the car while the other recharges the battery; sensors tell it to do what’s needed, or what’s most efficient, so smoothly that the driver can’t feel it and never knows, unless he checks the power-flow diagram on the display screen.

Another thing you can barely feel is the regenerative braking, which is really good because with so many electric cars and plug-in hybrids it’s so strong it’s intrusive.


When the Volt was introduced for 2011 to much fanfare, the cautionary word was: Wait for the second generation. The word was wise. This second-generation Volt is worth buying, and the 2017 Volt is the second year of the second generation. Smooth, powerful, efficient and good-looking. The biggest drawback is the back seat, only okay for four people.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
