With the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic, GM is taking its small car destiny in its own hands, bringing its Honda Fit fighter home to America--at least in terms of design and production. Unlike previous generations of the Aveo, the Sonic will be mostly homegrown.
Additionally, the introduction of a four-door sedan, as well as the regular hatchback, means the new Sonic lineup will stand a better chance competing against the likes of the Ford Fiesta and the hatchback-only Honda Fit. The interior gets Chevrolet’s latest family styling, which sees it share much of its design with cars like the Cruze and Equinox.
Look out for a world debut of the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic at next month’s 2011 Detroit Auto Show, with first sales to start shortly after.
