FIRST IMPRESSION: Chevrolet Sonic

 Chevrolet Sonic, the replacement model of Chevrolet's compact hatchback, Aveo, has arrived in Malaysia in the end of last year. This time around, Chevrolet Sonic the Hedgehog is available in two forms - sedan and hatchback, and both are well prepared to enter the competitive B-segment market in Malaysia.

Chevrolet was having a roadshow in Mid Valley Megamall and among the models displayed were the latest Sonic Sedan and Orlando MPV. As for the Sonic, it has youthful styling which appeals to the younger generation (and of course to the young-at-hearts too). The sedan, although is built based on the hatchback, doesn't have awkward styling, in fact it is one of the best looking hatchback-based sedans available in the Malaysia.
 Exposed and protruding headlamps are cool! But cleaning it might be a tough chore!


Well executed design and attractive taillights.


Cabin design has an upmarket outlook with very stylish design that is rare in its class. The instrument panel is one of its kind and is said to be inspired by motorcycle's. Everything felt well built but the plastic used is uninspiring. Also, the vertical storage spaces on the dashboard are awkwardly shaped, not sure a phone or a Touch N Go card can fit well inside or not.
 Awkwardly shaped storage compartment on the dashboard.


 Good news, with a wheelbase of 2525mm, the rear cabin space is adequate for me to sit comfortably with the front seats adjusted for my longish legs. However, the cabin might be a tad narrow for 3 adults to sit comfortably. 466 litres of boot space, well sized for weekend shopping spree or balik kampung trips!

 Both Sonic Sedan and Hatchback are powered by a 1.4 litre Ecotec engine which produces 100bhp and 130Nm of torque at 4000rpm, mated to a 6-speed transmission for both automatic and manual. Not sure about Sonic's performance but the figure looks adequate for a car of its size. Safety wise, the Sonic comes standard with ABS, EBD, Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA) and dual airbags. Pricing starts from RM77,508 for the sedan to RM79,508 for the hatch, both without insurance. The Sonic is a contender and will continue the legacy of Aveo.
