The 2012 Chevrolet Sonic will be arriving at Red River Chevrolet this Fall! Expect us to start getting them around November of 2011!
Yet again, Chevrolet is looking to change the game! Because of the way the economy is going, and how the price of fuel keeps sailing ever higher, Chevrolet is introducing the Sonic! With two different model, The Sedan and the Hatchback, the Sonic is already striking interest from Car and Driver as well as other Automotive Reviewers.
In the subcompact market, things like standard aluminum wheels are big news. Guess what? The 2012 Chevrolet Sonic has standard aluminum wheels. Honestly, we really like that.

What’s not to like?
The Chevrolet Sonic is packed full with features! The designers of this vehicle say that their inspiration was the design of motorcycles. They wanted this vehicle to look like it was moving even when it’s not.
The Chevy Sonic is an economy car, which means that some of the main luxuries are usually not found, however, Chevrolet managed to keep most of those intact with this car. As in the Chevy Cruze, the Sonic features 10 airbags making this vehicle one of the safest in its class. Also, the Sonic features a Triple-seal on the door which eliminates the annoying road noise. GM states that this vehicle is extremely smooth and quiet!
The Chevrolet Sonic is also proudly made in the USA; built in Michigan to be exact. That makes that Sonic the ONLY small car to be made right here in the United States! Now if that is not an American Automaker, then I don’t know what is.
Obviously I cannot give you all the features that this car is going to have, but some of the things discussed so far are things like the Bluetooth hands-free connectivity on the LT and LTZ models as well as the 6 months OnStar with turn-by-turn navigation. Most of the features that you can find any higher-end luxury cars will be made available in the Sonic.
As I said earlier, the Chevrolet Sonic should be arriving in the Shreveport, Bossier City, Louisiana area sometime during the Fall; probably around November or maybe a little earlier. The price has actually not been stated yet from GM, but the price below is just an estimate.
