Sonic is the newest venture into the subcompact market from Chevy. The
Sonic replaces the old and outdated Aveo with a much better looking and

For a subcompact car the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic is a lot of fun to drive.
There are 2 different engines but the one to get is the turbocharged 1.4 liter 4-cylinder that produces
138 horsepower and
