2012 Chevrolet Sonic - 2011 Detroit Auto
FOR MORE AUTO SHOW VIDEOS & NEWS VISIT:
A month after its Aveo-axing name change, the all-new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic
made its public debut in Detroit. On sale this fall in both four-door sedan
and five-door hatchback configurations, Chevy says this space-efficient
subcompact based on GM's sophisticated "global small car" platform will
deliver class-leading people and cargo space to match its aggressive
styling, sporty personality and an impressive roster of standard and
optional features. Aimed at youthful buyers who might be considering
alternatives like the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit, the Chevy Sonic also will
offer the latest in driver-connectivity systems as well as 10 standard
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

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.

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2013 Sonic: Chevrolet is
starting to prove to other Japanese automakers that they are not messing
around anymore. This can be applied to the Sonic a car that was once a
cheap Aveo has now gone upmarket with much technology and a sporty
character that couldn't be said with the Aveo. Inside you will find it to
be very unique with a fun character on the interior and comfortable seats
as well as a futuristic touchscreen. The Aveo comes in a hatchback or a
sedan. All in all great car from Chevy, but can it handle the competition
from the hot selling Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta. We think so.
