http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/sonic/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Chevrolet 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 The Sonic replaces the old and outdated Aveo with a much better looking and performing package. The 2012 Chevy Sonic comes in 2 different body styles, a 4-door sedan style, and a 5-door hatchback which has some European flavor to it. On the inside the interior is pretty nice and there is ample room for adults.
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 148 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is excellent at 29 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway. The base model Chevy Sonic costs $13,735 and the top of the line 2LZ hatchback costs $18,495. But no matter which Sonic you purchase a few things are for certain, you will be getting a great looking car with wonderful fuel economy. And that is the real value of the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic.

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2013 Sonic: Chevrolet is
starting to prove to other Japanese automakers that they are not messing
around anymore. This can be applied to the Sonic a car that was once a
cheap Aveo has now gone upmarket with much technology and a sporty
character that couldn't be said with the Aveo. Inside you will find it to
be very unique with a fun character on the interior and comfortable seats
as well as a futuristic touchscreen. The Aveo comes in a hatchback or a
sedan. All in all great car from Chevy, but can it handle the competition
from the hot selling Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta. We think so.
