2019 Chevy Sonic Model Overview, Pricing, Tech and Specs
Back in 2010, the second generation Chevrolet Aveo was unveiled donning the brand’s Gamma II global subcompact platform offered in both the 5-door hatchback and 4-door sedan models. According to Australian designer Ondrej Koromhaz, the design concept behind the Aveo was a four-seat motorcycle – hence the chopper-inspired instrument cluster and headlights.
The name was quickly changed to Sonic to reflect the changes and upgrades made from 2004 and is recognized as such here in the U.S., as well as in Japan, Chile, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentine, Colombia, South Africa, Israel and the Middle East.
