DARE TO COMPARE
The 2012 Sonic is not your typical small car. Today’s small-car buyers aren’t just looking for something dependable, but one that’s well-designed, good-looking, and fun-to-drive. Well the all new 2012 Sonic is here! Besides being fun to drive, the all new Sonic gets an estimated 40 mpg on the highway (best-in-segment fuel
economy). Despite the vehicle’s smaller stature, this car is sportier and the lead brand for Chevrolet’s all-new line of Z-Spec accessories, giving it the breakthrough ability to be the small car that customers look to for unique customization options. Sonic also will offer a distinctive line of vehicle wraps that when
combined with the Z-Spec accessories provide customers with endless personalization options.
HATCHBACK OR SEDAN
The Sonic will not only be offered in two body styles: a 5-door hatchback or a 4-door sedan, but with two engine options. The 1.8L ECOTEC® has 138 hp and 125 lb.-ft. of torque and comes in a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. To step it up a notch, the 1.4L turbo — which gets an estimated 138 horsepower
and 148 lb.-ft. of torque — is available with the Sonic LT and LTZ. This model can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. With the performance of a larger displacement engine, the Sonic 1.4L Turbo also improves mid-range torque, giving drivers added power on the highway. The Sonic’s usable power
is built to last, thanks to high-temperature nickel alloy turbo housing and water-cooled bearings designed in for durability.
