The GM Authority Take

It’s wonderful to see Chevy introduce a perky and bright color like Shock on the Sonic, as the hue matches the playful and fun personality of its host vehicle. Here’s to hoping that the Sonic doesn’t go the way of the Holden Barina.

About Chevrolet Sonic

The Chevrolet Sonic is a subcompact family of vehicles that include a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. Having replaced the Aveo in the Chevrolet lineup, the Sonic is currently Chevrolet’s second-smallest car, slotting above the Chevrolet Spark city car but below the compact Chevrolet Cruze, midsize Chevrolet Malibu and full-size Chevrolet Impala.

The current model was introduced for the 2012 model year and represents the first generation of the Sonic nameplate. The model rides on the GM Gamma platform shared with the Chevrolet Trax and Buick Encore.

The model was given a midcycle refresh for the 2017 model year. The 2018 Chevy Sonic represents the sixth model year of the first-generation Sonic. The vehicle remains highly competitive in its segment and the 2018 model year brings a handful of changes, including a new exterior color, a change to the Sun and Sound Package, and the standardization of the seven-inch diagonal color touchscreen. For the 2019 model year, the Sonic gained one new exterior color (while losing two other colors), the removal of the base 1.8L naturally-aspirated Ecotec engine, and several other minor equipment-level changes.

A March 2017 rumor stated that GM would discontinue the Sonic as soon as 2018. As of this writing, it doesn’t appear that the Sonic will see a second generation, as sales continue have dwindled to very unhealthy levels.

The Sonic is assembled at the following plants:
