Chevrolet Sonic Roadtrip
In May 2011, the Chevy engineers who designed the new 2012 Sonic took the car out for an extreme real-world road test from Colorado to California. See firsthand how it feels to see a car go from a blank piece of paper to full production and then drive it from summit to sea.
Chevrolet Sonic 2012, Sedán y Hatchback
http://www.autosblog.com.ar/?p=18337 | Aunque se trata de la tercera generación del Chevrolet Aveo, el Sonic llega con un nuevo nombre, en parte debido a la mala reputación que ha cosechado en los Estados Unidos, aunque fundamentalmente a que en muchos mercados, ambos modelos convivirán, es decir que el Aveo se seguirá comercializando como una versión mas económica a los nuevos Sonic sedán y hatchback.
Mecánicamente, cuenta con un motor de 1,6 litros Ecotec, con 115 CV, equipado con inyección multipunto MFI, doble árbol de levas a la cabeza DOHC y sistema de apertura variable de válvulas VVT.

2011 Chevrolet Aveo Video Test Drive
The Aveos excellent gas mileage and best in class standard features make it an affordable for the everyday driver. The first thing youll notice about the Aveo is how little youll need to stop at the gas station. The 4-cylinder engine offers an estimated 34 miles per gallon on the highway. Thats better fuel economy than the Nissan Versa or Honda Fit.
When it comes to safety, the Aveo doesnt disappoint. You and your passengers are protected by 2 front and 2 side impact airbags.
All Chevrolet models come with the best coverage in America: the Chevrolet 100,000 mile/5-year limited power-train warranty with roadside assistance. All Chevy vehicles also come with 1 year of on-stars safe and sound plan. The Aveo not only saves you money at the gas pump, its also a fun car to drive.

Groot zijn de aantallen niet voor Chevrolet in Nederland. Met de Cruze hoopte het Koreaanse merk potten te kunnen breken in het C-segment, maar daar is vooralsnog weinig van terecht gekomen. Het is nu de beurt aan de Aveo om types als de Fiesta, Punto en Fabia te beconcurreren. Is hij tegen de concurrentie opgewassen? We gaan rijden.

The new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic (Hatchback and Sedan)
Comes with hatchback and sedan.
The Chevrolet Aveo is known as one of the least-expensive and least-liked subcompact cars you can buy. Now that Chevrolet has announced the Aveo's replacement, the little econobox will just become a bad memory. Meet the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic.
"The 2012 Chevrolet Sonic is the small car GM has been saying it will build for decades," says Inside Line. "This time, however, the Sonic has been given a stylish look along with a generous helping of the company's latest technology. Penalty box? No, just a smaller version of the company's best sedans. At least that's how Chevrolet is pitching it."
Still riding the wave of praise for the Chevrolet Cruze, an affordable small car that reviewers like for its upscale feel and comfortable cabin, Chevy is banking on the Sonic to extend the goodwill into the company's newest super-small car offering. AutoWeek reports, "The Sonic will come in two variants: a sedan that resembles a slimmed-down Cruze and a diminutive hatch. Two Ecotec engines will be available, including a 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbo pushing out 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque that can be paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. The standard engine will be a 1.8-liter four-cylinder making 135 hp and 123 lb-ft of torque; it will be offered with a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox."
Autoblog says that, with the Sonic, "it's clear that The General had its sights locked on the Fiesta from the get go. The Sonic hatchback packs more back seat room than its Blue Oval competitor and, with the rear bench folded flat, delivers more cargo room, as well."
While the press hasn't gotten a full look at the sonic, which debuts later today at the Detroit auto show, the early reviewers are positive. "Chevy has built a subcompact car that's appealing for reasons other than price or gas mileage," says Kicking Tires. With the Ford Fiesta already tearing up the affordable small car rankings, and an all-new 2012 Honda Civic set to bow later this year, the Sonic could have its work cut out for it. But, all the competition is only good news for small car shoppers, who suddenly have plenty of strong options to chose from.
