Production on the new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic won’t begin until later in 2011, but Boston Chevrolet dealer Herb Connolly Chevrolet is already preparing to welcome the newest model to their Chevrolet family. The 2012 Chevy Sonic recently debuted at the North American International Auto Show and showed off its aggressive, youthful design in four and five-door sedan models.
Boston Chevrolet shoppers can expect Herb Connolly to be one of the first dealers in the area to flaunt the new Sonic that offers drivers a turbocharged performance and agile ride and handling, in an efficient, fun-to-drive small car.
“The all-new Chevrolet Sonic blends the practicality of a small car with the passion for driving that Chevrolet vehicles like the Corvette are known for,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “Its combination of great design, fun driving experience and the latest connectivity features create a serious competitor with a fun spirit.”
Of the many notable Chevy Sonic highlights, eco-conscious Boston Chevy fans will appreciate its efficient Ecotec 1.4L turbo engine rated at an estimated 138 horsepower that delivers competitive fuel economy. It’s the same engine used in the Chevrolet Cruze in a smaller, lighter package for a greater feeling of performance. In fact, the ride and handling characteristics of the Sonic are managed by Chevy Corvette engineers.
Tech savvy drivers can stay connected in the 2012 Sonic with GM’s famed OnStar and six months of Turn-by-Turn navigation. Additional available features include XM Satellite Radio, USB and Bluetooth functionality and MyChevrolet mobile application with OnStar MyLink vehicle connectivity.
