2012 Chevrolet Sonic Sedan
Chevrolet displayed the all-new 2012 Sonic at the 2011 North American
International Auto Show. Its youthful, aggressive design is backed by turbocharged performance and agile ride and
handling, combining to deliver an efficient, fun-to-drive small car.
The Chevrolet Sonic is offered in two body styles: a stylish four-door
sedan and a sporty five-door. Each delivers class-leading rear-seat
roominess and cargo space. A variety of connectivity features enhance the
"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," said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. "Its
combination of great design, fun driving experience and the latest
connectivity features create a serious competitor with a fun spirit."
Production of the Chevrolet Sonic begins later in 2011 at the General
Motors Orion Assembly Center in Michigan, which received a $545-million
investment in upgrades and retooling, and will help restore approximately
1,000 jobs in the metropolitan Detroit area.
"Chevrolet is the only company building a small car in the United States,"
said Perry. "We believe the Sonic will bring substance to the segment, with
progressive styling, performance and value that will change perceptions of
what a small car can be in America."

2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS First Drive Review & 0-60 MPH Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS is a small turbo-charged pocket rocket that's fun to drive.
But is it faster than the Sonic turbo? That's a question that we answer in
this first drive review as we drive, test and review the new RS version of
the Sonic turbo in San Francisco. Of
course we don't just drive the new Sonic RS, we also put it to the the
TFLcar real world test 0-60 MPH test. So how fast is the new Sonic RS 0-60
MPH? Watch this video to find out.
2012 Chevrolet Sonic Review and 0-60 MPH Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Chevrolet has completely redesigned and
even renamed the Chevy Aveo. The small Chevrolet economy car is now the
brand new Chevy Sonic. The old Aveo was really a rebadged Korean that is
now a bad memory in the minds of many car reviewers. So of course the
obvious question is has General Motors come out of the corner swinging with
a brand new Chevrolet Sonic that can take on the likes of the very popular
Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta, and of course the very similar KIA Rio. Check out
this 0 to 60 MPH review of the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic to find out.
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 Chevy Cruze RS
More news and videos on http://www.youcarpress.com
[31-Mar-2010] At the New York Auto Show, Chevrolet revealed the compact
2011 Cruze Eco. This high-efficiency model is powered by a 1.4L Ecotec turbocharged engine with variable valve
timing that achieves an estimated 40 mpg on the highway when combined with
a six-speed manual transmission. Cruze models for the United States and
Canada will be produced at the Lordstown, Ohio assembly complex. Chevrolet
also showed an optional RS sport appearance package for the Cruze LT and
LTZ trim levels.
2012 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback
A show car version of the new Cruze hatchback will be Chevrolet's star
attraction at this year's edition of the Paris motorshow, which kicks off
on September 30. Even though GM uses the term 'show car', the five-door
hatchback version of the Cruze is virtually production ready minus some
show-floor bling such as the blue hue on the headlamps, big wheels and the
LED daytime running lights.
While keeping the front end and taut body lines of the sedan model, the
refreshingly stylish hatch comes with a sweeping coupe-like roofline and a
unique rear end treatment. GM has not yet issued any photos of the cabin,
but don't expect any changes over the four-door saloon.
According to the automaker, cargo capacity for the Cruze hatchback is close
to 400 liters and will feature 60/40 split rear seating.
The available engine range will most likely be identical to the sedan that
is currently offered in Europe with two petrol engines, a 113HP 1.6-liter
and a 141HP 1.8-liter, plus a 123HP 2.0-liter turbo diesel.
The new Cruze 5-door hatchback will go on sale across Europe mid 2011 with
prices announced nearer the launch date. More markets will get the car
shortly after, though GM has not said if North America will be one of them.
Wayne Brannon, president and managing director of Chevrolet Europe,
beleives the addition of a hatchback version to the range will further
bolster the car's sales.
"Hatchbacks play a critical role in many markets," said Brannon. "The total
compact segment in Europe represents around 4.8 million units which is over
a quarter of the total market, with hatchbacks representing around 65% of
that volume. We therefore expect to see increased business in a number of
regions, while sending out a signal that Chevrolet is now a serious
mainstream player in Europe."
The Cruze hatch is one of four world Chevrolet premieres at the Paris show
and will join the new Orlando MPV, Captiva SUV facelift and the new Aveo.
