The Chevy Sonic is a small car with aggressive, youthful design in five-door and sedan models. Each of the two Sonic models delivers a surprisingly roomy passenger environment and generous cargo space -- including rear-seat roominess and cargo space that tops key competitors. A wide, planted stance with wheels-at-the-corners proportions conveys performance, while progressive, raked body lines suggest movement even when the car is stationary.
The Chevrolet Sonic is available with an Ecotec 1.4L turbo with an estimated 138 hp (103 kW). The Ecotec 1.4L turbo's power ratings are estimated at 138
horsepower (103 kW) and 148 lb.-ft. of torque (200 Nm) between 1,850 rpm and 4,900 rpm.
More importantly, the Sonic sedan and Sonic hatchback are the only small cars built in America. Production of the Sonic begins later in 2011 at GM's 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.

► 2012 Chevy Sonic makes a bungee jump!
When Chevrolet decided to launch the all-new Sonic in the States, it seems
they took the word 'launch' a little too seriously.
On the back of research that showed extreme sports to be highly popular
within the car's 18-30 target customer range, the company decided to make
quite an impact by throwing a car from the top of a ten storey tower in
Long Beach, California.
Well, we say impact. But just before it plummeted to the ground, the
all-new Aveo dipped its nose in a paddling pool and bounced back up in an
incredible display of non-contact automotive bungee-jumping.
The stunt was performed as part of Chevrolet's 'Let's do this' marketing
campaign in the USA.
The Bungee Jump is the second extreme sport in which the Aveo has
participated. Last month, the car was launched more quickly than any car in
history -- accelerating from 0-60mph in just 0.4 seconds as it was pushed
out of an aeroplane, to perform its first freefall skydive.

The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.

Detroit 2011: 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback and Sedan World Premier Review
For full review, visit:
Originally launched at the Paris Auto Show as the new Chevrolet Aveo,
General Motors is rebranding the car as the Sonic. With the Aveo name
hardly revered in the industry it's more than just a smart marketing move,
giving an all-new name to an all-new car.
