2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ 4DR Start Up, Exterior/ Interior Review
Welcome everyone to the all new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ in 4 door sedan form.
It's been in the works for awhile now, as a replacement to the tired Aveo. On that front, it now sport multiple futuristic design cues, and all new features. Many of these highly unique aspects are explained throughout this complete review of the vehicle.
This review consists of explaining many unique features and aspects of the overall car, complete with a demonstration of the engine, through the start up process, which in this case does include a remote start demonstration. This video is designed to educate potential buyers and enthusiasts alike on one of many new vehicles on the market today.
2012 Chevrolet Aveo Crash Test
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection for
the knees and femurs of both the driver and front passenger dummies and Chevrolet showed that a similar level of
protection would be offered to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. The Aveo
scored maximum points in the side barrier test, all body regions being well protected. Even in the more severe pole
test, the chest was adequately protected. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash
injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Maximum points were scored in the dynamic tests for the protection of the 3 year infant. The passenger airbag can
be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided
to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded by Euro NCAP. Permanently attached
labels also provide clear warnings that the passenger airbag should be disabled before a rearward facing child seat
can be used in that position.
The bumper provided mostly good protection to pedestrians' legs. However, the front edge of the bonnet was
predominantly poor. The bonnet provided good protection in most areas likely to be struck by the head of child but
was mostly poor in those areas where an adult's head would strike.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment across the Aveo range, and met Euro NCAP's test requirements.
The driver, front passenger and rear seats are all covered by a standard-fit seatelt reminder. A warning is given if the
vehicle speed exceeds a limit se by the driver, a system that was also rewarded by Euro NCAP

► 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.

SUVs and pickups pose less risk to people in crashes
IIHS news release • September 28, 2011
Effort to make SUVs, pickups less deadly to car occupants in crashes is paying off
ARLINGTON, VA - Today's SUVs and pickups pose far less risk to people in cars and minivans than previous generations, a new study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows. Until recently, SUVs and pickups were more likely than cars or minivans of the same weight to be involved in crashes that killed occupants of other cars or minivans. That's no longer the case for SUVs, and for pickups the higher risk is much less pronounced than it had been.
