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.

■On sale in the UK in June 2012
The anticipation is over: Toyota's new GT 86 sports car makes its world
debut at the Tokyo motor show on November 30. The compact 2+2 model, one of
the most keenly awaited new cars of the coming year, will go on sale in the
UK in June 2012.
The GT 86 has been conceived as an entirely driver-focused machine,
designed to deliver the core qualities of the classic sports car
experience. That means precise, instant response to the smallest throttle
and steering inputs and the kind of performance that appeals to those for
whom driving is a passion, not a necessity.
The GT 86 is built on a new platform, with a highly aerodynamic bodyshell
stretched tight over the car's mechanical elements. Rather than fitting a
heavy, large capacity powertrain, Toyota has opted instead to go back to
its sporting roots, installing a compact, front-mounted, free-revving
petrol engine that drives the rear wheels.
This four-cylinder "boxer" unit generates 197bhp at 7,000rpm and maximum
torque of 205Nm at 6,600rpm, giving the GT 86 brisk, engaging performance.
The powertrain is matched to the world's most compact four-seat design to
create a car that benefits from light weight, low inertia and a low centre
of gravity to achieve the best possible power-to-weight ratio. For the
driver that means lively, accessible performance and dynamic character with
minimal intrusion from electronic systems.
The GT 86 measures 4,240mm long, 1,285mm high and 1775mm wide, with a
wheelbase of 2,570mm, dimensions which make it the most compact four-seater
sports car available today.
Both the powertrain and the driving position have been set as low and as
far back as possible to achieve the best balance: the car has a
near-perfect 53:47 front-to-rear weight distribution. The flat-four engine
format and the driver's hip point -- the lowest of any current Toyota
production model -- together give the GT 86 an ultra-low centre of gravity,
at just 460mm.
The GT 86 makes the most of a light kerb weight, making it easy for drivers
to exploit its nimble handling and cornering poise. The suspension features
MacPherson struts at the front and double wishbones at the rear. The car
rides on 17-inch wheels and is fitted with ventilated disc brakes fore and
World's first horizontally opposed engine with D-4S
The GT 86's engine is the result of a joint Toyota and Subaru development
programme that brings together their technical know-how and mutual passion
for sports cars.
Toyota has added its D-4S injection technology to Subaru's new,
horizontally opposed, naturally aspirated 1,998cc four-cylinder boxer
engine. This system features separate twin injectors for both direct and
port injection, and a high 12.5:1 compression ratio, increasing power and
torque across a wide range of engine speeds without sacrificing fuel
efficiency and environmental performance.
The flat-four engine has equal bore and stroke of 86.0mm and drives through
either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The manual
offers quick, precise shifts using a tactile, short-throw lever; the
automatic transmission can be controlled using paddle shifts mounted on the
Power is distributed to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential to
give the best possible grip in all driving conditions. The ABS and
switchable vehicle stability control systems have been tuned specifically
to deliver dynamic stability at the limit of the car's performance envelope
with minimal electronic intervention to help preserve the purity of the

► 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.
