2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ

This video was from the St Louis autoshow. 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.s uploaded from an Android phone.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic Review by Automotive Trends
http://automotivetrends.com GM's been enjoying much improved sales results the last few years and a big driver of that has been the newfound competitiveness in its car lineup. Chevrolet now has a strong entry at every level from the ity bity Spark to the downright handsome Impala and it's been far too long since we've been able to declare that. We just got a crack at the 5-door Sonic and while no one will be using phrases like "downright handsome" to describe it, we found a lot to like about the little Michigan-made Chevy. First is the excellent 1.4-liter turbo that delivers a stout 148 lb-ft of torque at a very useable 2,500 rpm and manages to earn 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. We liked the 6-speed manual that delivered rewarding shifts and smooth clutch engagement. Just like we noted in the Spark the technology offered at this price point continues to impress. Our $20,405 tester featured a backup camera, bluetooth, lane departure and forward collision alert systems, satellite radio and the touch-screen MyLink system for easily controlling compatible iPhone apps like navigation and Pandora. We would ask Chevy to bring back some simple volume and tuning knobs. We found the Sonic commendably quiet with a comfortable ride quality and impressive responses considering this wasn't even a sport-oriented RS model. The seats were very comfortable and nicely bolstered and the driving position was spot on with no sense that this was an economy car. Our particular tester featured a selection of dealer-installed accessories like black wheels and a cat back Borla Exhaust that might appeal to young buyers that make up a big part of this car's target audience but certainly aren't needed. With solid ergonomics, a willing powertrain and no glaring penalties for choosing one of their smallest cars, a Chevy showroom should be high on your list when shopping in this segment.
