► 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.

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.
