Originally manufactured by Daewoo as the Kalos the Chevrolet Sonic name was used in North America from 2011.

It's a subcompact car measuring only 4 meters long (the hatchback version) or 4.4 meters long if the sedan version.

Powering the tiny car is a range of engines that range from a 1.2 liter gasoline through to a torquey 1.8 liter gasoline or sporty 1.4 turbocharged gasoline.

Buyers can opt for a 5 or 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission powering the front wheels.

After Chevrolet took over Daewoo motors they switched the cars to their own platform with the Sonic now built on the same chassis as the Trax and Spark.

For thrill-seeking buyers of the Chevrolet Sonic, they can choose the RS trim complete with aggressive styling and alloy wheels.

Safety ratings for the car are fantastic with 5 out of 5 stars awarded for every discipline apart from "rollover" where it was awarded 4 out of 5 stars.

In 2020 the Sonic was discontinued completely from all regions after a gradual removal from other regions.

Buyers looking for a compact car from Chevrolet are being diverted to their Cavelier model that was brought back to life in 2016 after being put to rest for 10~ years.
