General Motors is at last fully in the small car segment with the 2012 Chevy Sonic. The 2012 Chevy Sonic is an all new small car that replaces the Chevrolet Aveo. Compared to the outdated and poor-performing Aveo, many 2012 Chevy Sonic review says, they are very pleased with the Sonic. The 2012 Chevy Sonic is a completely new, global small car that thankfully has nothing to do with the rental-car-mainstay, the Aveo, that it replaces–thus the new model name.
The Chevrolet taken the 2012 Chevy Sonic to the next level by making it available as a hatchback and sedan and it gets the same four-cylinder engines as the Chevrolet Cruze. The crux of the 2012 Chevy Sonic marketing strategy is to draw in millennial, those 18-29 year old consumers who make up a substantial portion of the car market – but not necessarily new cars.
The 2012 Chevy Sonic sedan very much relies on Chevy’s new design language, with a broad front end and prominent bow-tie logo spanning the grille. Get close to the 2012 Chevy Sonic and you’ll see some neat design cues – exposed headlamps said to mimic those on a motorcycle, and rear door handles on the hatchback that mimic those on an Acura NSX or Alfa Romeo 156.
Alloy wheels are standard, and all the 2012 Chevy Sonic designs, from the 15-inch base versions to the beefy 17-inch examples are attractive. The 2012 Chevy Sonic also gets a number of optional interior features like heated front seats, remote start and a sunroof. The 2012 Chevy Sonic standard features are basic, but typical for the class. The 2012 Chevy Sonic also gets air conditioning, AM/FM radio and an auxiliary input jack.
There are two engines available in the 2012 Chevy Sonic, and both of them are poached from the Chevrolet Cruze lineup: a normally aspirated 1.8-liter four, or a turbocharged 1.4-liter four. Both 2012 Chevy Sonic engines can be had with either a manual gearbox or an all-new six-speed automatic. According to the EPA, the 2012 Chevy Sonic mpg gets an average 26/35 mpg city/highway for the manual models equipped with the 1.8-liter engine, and 25/35 mpg with an automatic.
2012 Chevy Sonic models with the 1.4-liter engine and a manual transmission average 29/40 mpg. The 2012 Chevy Sonic 1.4T is definitely most favored choice between the two, as it’s more flexible as well as more fuel-efficient. For most applications, the power is certainly adequate, and we found ourselves going much faster than the posted limit without trying very hard. The 2012 Chevy Sonic 6-speed gearbox is a pretty good unit, with precise throws, although the clutch engagement point is a bit high up.
