“Fun Ride, Now” – that’s the tagline of the new Chevrolet Sonic which was launched by the brand’s sole distributor in Malaysia, Naza Quest. Targeted at the younger generation such as young-upcoming executives and first-jobbers, the new Sonic comes with fresh styling, agile driving dynamics and a spirited engine – all within a competitive price tag.
Ok, we are not too sure about the last part of the statement…but, that’s what Chevrolet promises.
Anyway, the new Chevrolet Sonic is available in two different variants: five-door hatchback and four-door sedan. Both versions are powered by 1.4-litre Ecotec D-CVCP engine with a maximum output of 99hp and 130Nm of torque that is coupled together with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic and toggle switch. The car’s suspension has been also been given what the company referred to as “Euro-Ride Tuning” treatment that promises smoother drive and better handling on the road.
