2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ Turbo
Generations have grown up trained to shop the import brands for a good
subcompact car. Sonic is out to make waves in the segment and change that
kind of thinking. Tom Voelk takes a look at a turbo LTZ model.

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.
2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS First Drive Review & 0-60 MPH Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS is a small turbo-charged pocket rocket that's fun to drive.
But is it faster than the Sonic turbo? That's a question that we answer in
this first drive review as we drive, test and review the new RS version of
the Sonic turbo in San Francisco. Of
course we don't just drive the new Sonic RS, we also put it to the the
TFLcar real world test 0-60 MPH test. So how fast is the new Sonic RS 0-60
MPH? Watch this video to find out.
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.
