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.

Detroit 2011: 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback and Sedan World Premier Review
For full review, visit:
Originally launched at the Paris Auto Show as the new Chevrolet Aveo,
General Motors is rebranding the car as the Sonic. With the Aveo name
hardly revered in the industry it's more than just a smart marketing move,
giving an all-new name to an all-new car.
2012 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback
A show car version of the new Cruze hatchback will be Chevrolet's star
attraction at this year's edition of the Paris motorshow, which kicks off
on September 30. Even though GM uses the term 'show car', the five-door
hatchback version of the Cruze is virtually production ready minus some
show-floor bling such as the blue hue on the headlamps, big wheels and the
LED daytime running lights.
While keeping the front end and taut body lines of the sedan model, the
refreshingly stylish hatch comes with a sweeping coupe-like roofline and a
unique rear end treatment. GM has not yet issued any photos of the cabin,
but don't expect any changes over the four-door saloon.
According to the automaker, cargo capacity for the Cruze hatchback is close
to 400 liters and will feature 60/40 split rear seating.
The available engine range will most likely be identical to the sedan that
is currently offered in Europe with two petrol engines, a 113HP 1.6-liter
and a 141HP 1.8-liter, plus a 123HP 2.0-liter turbo diesel.
The new Cruze 5-door hatchback will go on sale across Europe mid 2011 with
prices announced nearer the launch date. More markets will get the car
shortly after, though GM has not said if North America will be one of them.
Wayne Brannon, president and managing director of Chevrolet Europe,
beleives the addition of a hatchback version to the range will further
bolster the car's sales.
"Hatchbacks play a critical role in many markets," said Brannon. "The total
compact segment in Europe represents around 4.8 million units which is over
a quarter of the total market, with hatchbacks representing around 65% of
that volume. We therefore expect to see increased business in a number of
regions, while sending out a signal that Chevrolet is now a serious
mainstream player in Europe."
The Cruze hatch is one of four world Chevrolet premieres at the Paris show
and will join the new Orlando MPV, Captiva SUV facelift and the new Aveo.
2012 Chevy Sonic 2LS, First Look, O'Donnell Chevrolet Buick, San Gabriel, CA 91776
The all new Chevy Sonic, in Inferno Orange metallic, is such a great
quality compact vehicle. We were impressed with its features and price tag
upon our first review. The simplicity of this vehicle is hardly seen with
its progressive instrument display, to include the RPM gauge and
Speedometer/Driver Information Center. Its hard to believe that Chevy
actually put a 6-speed transmission in this inexpensive sedan. You have to
test drive it to feel its power and comfort. This is a new Chevy! Chevy
