3/4 Front Glamour 2015 Chevrolet Sonic

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

Available as a four-door sedan or five-door hatchback, the Chevrolet Sonic debuted for the 2012 model year as a replacement for the Aveo. Motorcycle design reportedly influenced the Sonic's styling, which features aggressive fender flairs, cycle-like front headlamps and protruding taillights.

The Sonic is available in four trim levels and comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder in naturally-aspirated and turbocharged variants. The sportier LT and LTZ sedans include a rear-deck spoiler. Marketed as a separate model, the Sonic RS was introduced for 2013—its performance-oriented specifications include the turbocharged engine, 17-inch wheels and a specially-tuned, lowered suspension.
