2012 SONIC TRANSMISSION CHOICES.wmv
You've seen the engines, now look at what puts the power to the road. The
ALL NEW 2012 Chevrolet Sonic has some great transmission choices to suit
2011 Chevrolet Sonic Z Spec Concept
General Motors seems intent on banishing all memories of the unloved Aveo
-- so much so that it's gone and renamed its entry-level fighter in the
States. While we're still not 100-percent in love with the name (we can't
get visions of spiky-haired hedgehogs out of our heads...), all three
flavors of the Sonic do appear to be vastly improved over the machine they
replace, though one of them, the Z Spec, is still in the concept stage.
More than anything else, they look vastly better both inside and out, but
until we get a stint behind the wheel we'll hold off final judgment.
According to Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing, "The
all-new Chevrolet Sonic blends the practicality of a small car with the
passion for driving that Chevrolet vehicles like the Corvette are known
for." That won't be the only time you'll ever hear someone mention the
Sonic in the same sentence as the Corvette. In fact, Chevy tells us that
Corvette engineers are responsible for the ride and handling of the
The Sonic will be available in both sedan and hatchback bodystyles and with
either a 1.8-liter four-cylinder mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed
automatic, or a 1.4-liter turbocharged
mill with 138 horsepower that's hooked to
either an automatic or manual with six forward ratios. For those keeping
track, these are the same engines available in the slightly larger Cruze.
You'll also get a gauge cluster inspired by motorcycles, OnStar
connectivity, 10 airbags and plenty more

2012 Chevy Sonic 2LS, First Look, O'Donnell Chevrolet Buick, San Gabriel, CA 91776
The all new Chevy Sonic, in Inferno Orange metallic, is such a great
quality compact vehicle. We were impressed with its features and price tag
upon our first review. The simplicity of this vehicle is hardly seen with
its progressive instrument display, to include the RPM gauge and
Speedometer/Driver Information Center. Its hard to believe that Chevy
actually put a 6-speed transmission in this inexpensive sedan. You have to
test drive it to feel its power and comfort. This is a new Chevy! Chevy

2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ Turbo
Generations have grown up trained to shop the import brands for a good
subcompact car. Sonic is out to make waves in the segment and change that
kind of thinking. Tom Voelk takes a look at a turbo LTZ model.
2011 Chevrolet Aveo roadtest (english subtitled)
Groot zijn de aantallen niet voor Chevrolet in Nederland. Met de Cruze
hoopte het Koreaanse merk potten te kunnen breken in het C-segment, maar
daar is vooralsnog weinig van terecht gekomen. Het is nu de beurt aan de
Aveo om types als de Fiesta, Punto en Fabia te beconcurreren. Is hij tegen
de concurrentie opgewassen? We gaan rijden.
