2012 Sonic, Aveo Replacement

Looks like the Sonic which will be the replacement for the Aveo will get the Cruze treatment with a nice interior.

Looks to be bigger then all the other cars in it's segment so it will probably be close to Cavalier size.

The bonus is that it gets the 1.4 turbo with 138 hp which is 18 more then the Ford Fiesta and I can guess it's a good 400 lbs less then the Cruze which should give it the pep that is missing from the Cruze lineup.

Also I like some of the aero done with smaller grill opening which combined with a small efficient engine and light weight should give off 30+ mpg city and 40+ highway and hopefully a decent 0 - 60 time.

Can't wait to get some more info.
Might actualy skip out on the Cruze Eco for a next car if they get close to same mpg and I can save a few grand.

Yep - and you can get the 1.4L Turbo with the 6-speed manual. Corvette engineers designed the suspension. I bet it'll be a lot of fun!

Not a replacement as much a rename.

It's a complete new vehicle. So it can be called a replacement if they want.

Kyle, how can you like that thing? I was on the rocks about the Cruze too until I drove one and now I'm on the Cruze train but I just Cannot think that GM believes that this car part of the next big step in their so called rebuild.

Because it is. It looks sweet, very trendy, has a great interior for the segment. The powertrain and handling setup should kick ass. All in all, an extremely fun vehicle to own, for cheap. How couldn't I like it?
