The production version of the vehicle will be shown to the public for the first time at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas starting Oct. 30.

“With a year under our belt, we’ve learned our Sonic sedan buyers are looking at exterior styling as a key purchase driver,” said Cristi Landy, marketing director of Chevrolet small cars.

The Sonic Dusk, targeted at young buyers and designed to burnish GM’s reputation in the passenger-car segment, will have a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and six-speed automatic or manual transmission.

With a pearl nickel finish on 18-inch wheels and the Chevy MyLink infotainment system, the vehicle is an example of how GM is responding to “customers that want to bring features from a larger vehicle into a small vehicle.”
