In fact, the Sonic is the only subcompact car built in the USA, but it has huge influence worldwide.

2012 Sonic Features

The Sonic comes in three trim levels: LS, LT and LTZ. Each trim can appear as a 5-door hatchback or a 4-door sedan. Both the interior and exterior are inspired by a motorcycle design. Just take a look at the circular headlamps and the velocity gauge in the interior.

The same engineers who work on the Corvette have tuned the Sonic’s suspension, giving it a sporty driving response. The 1.8L engine can produce 138-hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. The LTZ and LT trims also offer an optional 1.4L turbocharged engine for even more power. The Sonic can get up to 43.8 mpg on the highway. That means incredible fuel savings for the driver.

That’s great. Excellent fuel economy. Excellent power. But is it safe? Absolutely. You get complete all-around protection from airbags, including the knees. OnStar service are available providing both turn-by-turn navigation as well as Emergency Services and Crash Assist in the event of an accident. They’re a few of the reasons why the Sonic has been awarded the 2012 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS and a 5-star Crash test rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
