It’s time to let go and break free from the norm. The Sonic hatch is the new cool. It’s fun to drive and even better to look at.

The fun times don’t stop there; it also has the MyLink Infotainment system and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) & ABS with EBD so that you’re always safe while having the time of your life.
A CAR WITH A REAL SENSE OF FUN
The Sonic exudes fun
The Sonic exudes fun and spirit. Sleek, assertive styling on the outside and on the inside, a funky motorcycle-inspired instrument cluster, ice-blue back-lighting and the important all aux-in for your MP3 player. All this, plus comfortable seating for five. How fun is the Sonic? Watch this popular YouTube music video shown at the 2012 Super Bowl.
The fun doesn’t stop
The fun doesn’t stop there: the Sonic’s chassis is among the most rigid in its class, which means it’s dynamic and responsive. That, coupled with the exciting new range of, engines and transmission, means you’ll find the new Sonic is fun, fun, fun to drive.
It starts, where it counts, with a charged turbo engine, sporty gear ratios, lowered and stiffened suspension and performance-tuned dampers.
It continues to the exterior where the sporty front, rear spoiler, exposed headlamps, motorcycle-inspired tail-lamps and dynamic lines are all made to look that little bit meaner by the lowered suspension.
And it’s all brought together by the performance styled interior design.
- The leather and suede bucket seats, the red stitching, the motorcycle-inspired instrument cluster with Graphite Silver accents and the piano black finishing are all complemented by the MyLink 7” touch screen infotainment system.
So when we say sport, we’re talking all ‘round.
DISTINCTIVE EXTERIOR STYLING
What we think you’ll love
What we think you’ll love about the Sonic is that it’s distinctive – refreshingly different. The motorcycle-inspired headlamps are a great example, housed in dual tubes with high-gloss black bezels and chrome rings. Pronounced wheel arches continue the assertive theme and from the back, the Sonic’s rear lamps add a touch of chic to the sleek, aerodynamically refined posture.
FUN TO DRIVE, YET LIGHT ON FUEL
Fun to drive, yet light on fuel
Spirited handling and fuel efficiency don’t normally co-exist well, but they do with the Sonic. In fact, achieving a balance between driving enjoyment and the car’s environmental footprint was a core principle guiding the design of the Sonic’s engine line-up. And we know these are important considerations for you.
The Sonic is all about sophistication and flair. Sleek, confident styling on the outside and, on the inside, it’s the intelligent use of quality materials and features that impress. Not forgetting comfortable seating for five.
But it’s not just about the Sonic’s looks. It’s also about driving pleasure. This means you’ll find the Sonic comfortable, nippy and economical to drive.

ADVANCED SAFETY PERFORMANCE
Standard on all models are four airbags, and a 4-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) with brake assist. ISOFIX child seat restraints are standard on all models too, and are designed for use with ISOFIX child seats.
The tight body frame isn’t just about driving pleasure. It’s also key to the Sonic’s advanced safety performance: in an accident the roof is capable of bearing 4.2 times the car’s actual weight. Advanced steels used on the Sonic have greater tensile strength, which in turn protects the people inside the car.
Open the door and get inside
Open the door and get inside the Sonic. You’ll appreciate its refinement straightaway. It has the features we know you ask for in a car: distinctive yet practical styling, intelligent storage options, roominess.
Two glove boxes
There are two glove boxes – the upper one has an integrated USB player, which means you can also operate your USB port (optional with comfort package) via the steering wheel controls, while the lower one is there for your everyday items.
The Sonic comes standard with the innovative infotainment system Chevrolet MyLink that enhances your driving experience with simple connectivity, smartphone integration and capacitive touch controls on a 7-inch high resolution touch screen.
Stay connected to every rhythm of life through all 5 sound systems like AM, FM, AUX, USB and Smartphone. Watch your favourite movies through USB Drive and AUX and browse through your pictures in the photo gallery that comes in the slide show feature, along with an automatic cutoff signal when reaching the speed of 8 km/hr for the safety of the driver and the passengers. This model is exceptionally stylish and practical.
For a small car, the Sonic is designed to offer flexible load space through the use of intelligent features.
