Detroit Free Press - October 25, 2012

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.”
