Chevrolet Sonic

Thu, 13 Jan 2011

The Sonic is Chevrolet's latest attempt to induce a small car in the American market and take on the Ford Fiesta in one fell swoop. Replacing the generally unaccepted Aveo, the Sonic draws from a youthful and aggressive design in a bid to appeal to the younger market.

Available as a four-door sedan (seen here) as well as a five-door hatchback, the Sonic displays a 'progressive exterior design', according to the American brand's press materials. Sporting motorcycle inspired bulbous headlights and strong character lines, the sedan at least, does convey its sporting intention well. Beneath this demi-muscular exterior, is a new range of obligatory more efficient engines, as well as suspension tuned by the same engineers that brought you the Corvette.

The car's interior carries on the youthful, sporty character outlined in the vehicle's exterior design. The Sonic's IP carries over the motorcycle theme from the outside, with the binnacle featuring a large, round analog tachometer set within an asymmetrical LCD readout. Whilst the two tone color scheme, which extends through the door cards, helps break up the visual mass of the IP.
