2012 Chevy Sonic LTZ
General Motors yanked back the sheets on its newest sub-compact from
Chevrolet; the 2012 Sonic. The five-door hatch and four-door sedan models
will be available with either a standard 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine or
an optional turbo'd 1.4-liter mill that
can be ordered up with either a five-speed manual trans or a six-speed
slushbox. At the time of the unveiling, GM was mum on the Sonic's estimated
miles per gallon rating but The General is now ready to talk a little mpg.
The automaker is saying that the 2012 subcompact Sonic will achieve up to
40 mpg highway when it hits the market this fall. Though none of the
numbers have been finalized by the EPA, GM's projected mileage figures seem
highly likely considering that the Sonic packs the same powertrains as the
heftier Chevrolet Cruze. The Cruze, which is rated at 24/36 mpg
city/highway, obviously outweighs the Sonic and, therefore, we expect it to
be the less fuel efficient vehicle of the two.
For the sake of comparison, the outgoing Aveo, equipped with a manual
trans, achieved an EPA rating of 25/35 mpg city/highway. The Sonic's 40-mpg
rating would place it on par with the Ford Fiesta and ahead of both the
Honda Fit and the Toyota Yaris

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.

Chevrolet Sonic Sedan English Version
It was the first car in its class with an available turbocharged engine. The first car in its class to
receive a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety from the U.S. NHTSA and
to offer 10 standard airbags.3 So it should come as no surprise that the
2014 Sonic was recognized as a Consumers Digest "Best Buy" for Subcompact
Cars. Put yourself first, on whatever road you choose -- in the 2014 Sonic
2013 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ Z Spec
Check out this sporty little sedan from our buddies at GM. This here is the
new 2013 Chevy Sonic LTZ Z-Spec. Wearing a nice satin white tux for the
show here at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit
Michigan. It too has been upgraded with some tasteful accents like the
lower profile front and rear fascia and subtle smooth ground effects, There
is also some performance goodies packed under there like sport suspension
and Wilwood brakes. There is also a badge on the deck lid that states "turbo" so i would assume that it has some
boogie to it as well.
2012 Chevrolet Sonic LT Sedan Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev With Exhaust View - 1K
2012 Chevrolet Sonic LT
This Sonic has the 138 HP 1.8L DOHC 4 Cyl & it's paired to a 6 speed auto.
The Sonic has quite a large engine considering it's a sub-compact. Though
I feel this to be a rather unrefined engine. A tad on the buzzy side &
somewhat excessively noisy at idle which concerns me. Not sure if it's
this car or normal operation of this engine. It's quite comfortable up in
front but the back seat is off limits for tall passenger. I really hope
running into the hatch version next.
