DETROIT -- Chevrolet displayed the all-new 2012 Sonic at the 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 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 driving experience.
"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 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."

2014 Chevrolet Sonic RS 1.4L Turbo Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/sonic/2014/?id=32972 The Chevrolet Sonic
should be on your shopping list for a couple of reasons:
1) The car is very cheap with a starting price of $14,170
2) It is one of the few small cars actually built in America
3) The Sonic drives and handles well
4) The car is very safe with 10 airbags
On the inside the Sonic is cheeky and playful. The instrument set-up is
unique combining both analog and digital gauges. The brushed silver trim
and fake suede is nice enough. The driver's compartment is roomy and easy
to see the road. The basic Sonic engine is a naturally aspirated 1.8 liter.
But this Sonic RS has a 1.4 liter ECOTEC turbocharged 4-cylinder which is peppy and eager.
The Sonic puts together some great ingredients resulting in a very
satisfying overall experience. This RS model starts at $20k after all is
said and done.

2014 Chevy Sonic Turbo vs Ford Fiesta vs the Ike Gauntlet Mashup Review (Part 2)
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Chevy Sonic turbo and the 2014 Ford Fiesta are small economy
cars that almost directly compete. Of course the difference is that the
Fiesta is normally aspirated while the sonic has a small turbo. How does this effect a cars performance
when the road gets steep, the altitude get hight and the car is loaded to
the rafters with with people? From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower
Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or
3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test a small economy car
like the 2014 2014 Ford Fiesta and the Chevy Sonic turbo.
