2013 Sonic RS – Portland OR

Posted on 20 March 2012 by Grace

The sporty Sonic will be available in an even sportier version, the RS. This high performance car made it’s debut at the North American International Auto Show.

The Sonic RS will be stocked with a turbocharged 138-horsepower four-cylinder engine, tuned exhaust, tighter suspension, 17-inch wheels and an upgraded, leather-trimmed interior. Its grille, fog lamps and other body parts have been redesigned. Unlike most subcompacts, this car is designed to be not only fuel efficient, but fun to drive.

“The new Chevrolet Sonic RS pushes Chevrolet’s performance heritage in a new direction, for a new generation of drivers,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Global Chevrolet Marketing. “It takes the Sonic’s great design and latest connectivity features and combines them with a more performance-oriented look and feel.”

Though the existing Sonic is a blast to drive, the Sonic RS takes fun to a whole new level.

The Spark, Chevy enters the mini-car market.

Posted on 18 November 2011 by Grace

GM enters the mini-car market with the Chevy Spark. They unveiled four, 12 foot, cuties at the LA Auto Show, sporting a variety of candy colors from Salsa to Disco.

The Spark packs a 1.2 liter four-cylinder engine, delivers 85 horsepower and 82 ft-lbs of torque. But don’t be too quick to judge the power of the Spark the light weight gives the car better than expected get up and go, while delivering 40+ highway MPG and 30+ city MPG.

Chevy was not chintzy with the features on this little car. In fact the Spark is packed with technology like, a 7-inch touchscreen on the center console, standard air conditioning and power windows, and Bluetooth/Pandora connectivity.

The Spark will be priced below the Chevy Sonic though; official pricing has not been released. The spunky Spark will be a welcomed addition to the Chevy line-up when it is released this summer.
