The subcompact segment seems to get larger by the year, and the 2012 Sonic faces stiff competition from established players like the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit. With its nimble chassis and turbocharged 1.4L engine--the only turbo in its class--the Sonic offers a spirited driving experience its rivals can't match. Sedan or hatchback body styles also give it the edge, and with a low entry price and plenty of convenience options just a click away, the Sonic stands out as a real bargain for shoppers on a budget.
The 2012 Chevrolet Sonic is a front-wheel-drive 5-door hatchback or 4-door sedan in the growing subcompact segment. This successor to the Aveo benefits from GM's all-new global small vehicle architecture and comes powered by either a 1.8L 4-cylinder churning out 138 hp, or a 1.4L turbocharged four with the same amount of power, but an impressive 148 ft-lb of torque. They are the same engines available in the larger Chevrolet Cruze; the 1.8 is mated to either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed auto, while the 1.4 is paired with either a 6-speed manual or the 6-speed auto.
The Chevrolet Sonic is all-new for 2012. The new subcompact comes loaded with personality, and is available in enough configurations to suit most buyers.
