    The 2012 Chevrolet Sonic is currently offered as a sedan or a 4-door hatchback. Due to this, car buyers are given the chance to choose as to which of the two versions suits their vehicle needs. Aside from this, most car experts believe that the Sonic would eventually emerge as the new leader in the subcompact division particularly in terms of performance and handling since the development of the suspension used in this car was accomplished by engineers that were responsible for the Corvette's smooth gliding performance.


    In terms of the exterior design, the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic looks like an ordinary Chevy sedan or hatchback. However, the Sonic's most dominant exterior feature is its aggressive and attractive looks. The Sonic's aggressive and attractive looks were made possible by its very low fascia and exposed head lamps. Other car experts also view the Sonic's exterior design as a well-tailored and clean piece of work since some of the car's curves and arching line were neatly outlined on the several areas which further enhanced the Sonic's overall appearance.


    The 2012 Chevrolet Sonic's interior design is viewed by many observers as enjoyable. Although the materials used on the car's dash and other areas inside the car are not that expensive or upscale the interior layout still looks good and habitable. In addition to this, the electrical gadgets installed on the Sonic and offered as standard features further enhanced the car's interior.

    In terms of interior space, the Sonic provides an ample space on both the front and the rear-seats. This simply means that the front and rear passengers could actually move freely and enjoy the ride. This particular characteristic is not usually found on compact most cars and even on the Ford Fiesta which is currently recognized as the top subcompact car in the market.

    Performance   Handling

    The 2012 Chevrolet Sonic is offered on sale with two engine options. The first engine that is attached to either the sedan or hatchback version of the Sonic is the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that is capable of producing up to 135 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission.

    The other engine used by the Sonic is the alternative 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission only. This engine produces up to 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque.

    When driven, the Sonic provides precise steering which is a good quality that a subcompact car should possess. In addition to this, those who were able to take this car to a test drive were amazed by the absence of body roll despite the Sonic's relatively smaller size.

    Fuel Economy

    In terms of fuel economy, all of the trims of 2012 Chevrolet Sonic have similar ratings. All of the trims with 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine obtained the mileage estimates of 26 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway.
