The Chevrolet Sonic is a subcompact model that has been manufactured by Chevrolet since 2002. It is also called the Chevrolet Aveo outside of North America and parts of Asia. The nameplate is also used in Central America for the Chevrolet Sail.
There have been only two generations, with the second one being released in 2012.
It has come as a 4-door sedan, as well as both a 3-door and 5-door hatchback.
It is often considered to be a smaller version of the Chevrolet Cruze. Other subcompacts that the Chevrolet Sonic competes with are the Hyundai i20, Kia Rio, and Hyundai Accent.
Petrol engines ranged from a 1.2-liter Family inline-4 to a 1.8-liter LWE inline-4. Also worth noting is the turbocharged 1.4-liter LUV inline-4 found in LTZ models. Diesel options were very limited, only having a turbocharged 1.3-liter CDTi inline-4 in the second generation models.
Manual transmissions included both a 5-speed and 6-speed gearbox. Automatics were typically limited to only 6-speed options.
Trim levels include the typical Chevrolet offerings. These are the base LS, followed by LT, and then finally LTZ. The LTZ trim was later renamed Premier, in line with other offerings from the manufacturer. There was also an RS performance package offered later on.
Chevrolet also released an RS version, which featured slightly improved performance specs and limited trim.
Chevrolet announced that both the Sonic and Aveo were eventually discontinued in all markets by 2020. This was in part due to GM repurposing the Orion Assembly plant for the production of planned electric vehicles in the near future.
