Opening up the road ahead
Nothing says more about you than your ride, so it’s got to be right.
Chevrolet Sonic has the energy to go up against anything else on the
street. Its cool, modern design stands out with aggressive, sleek looks.
115hp (net) and dynamic handling provides real punch, and innovative
interior design creates plenty of space. Put it all together and
you’ve got a car that’s pretty much impossible to ignore.
Designed to earn respect
You’ve never seen a car inspired by motorcycles before. Even from
the outside, it’s obvious Chevrolet Sonic is a rush to drive. Aggressive
lines, with distinctive wheel arches and motorcycle-inspired round
headlamps really look the part. The sporty profile incorporates
hidden rear door handles* that give the car a coupe-like feel. To really
set you apart, Sonic also offers jaw-dropping accessories. So expect
nothing less than total awe!
*Five-door models.
Designed to inspire
Kick back behind the wheel of Chevrolet Sonic and check
out the massive tachometer—it’s a call to action in itself.
The motorcycle-inspired instrument cluster is backlit in cool
Ice Blue and integrates stylishly into the dash. The smart center
stack makes a big feature of the banging audio system—fully controlled
through the fat three-spoke steering wheel. It’s everything you need to
compete on the street.
It ’s pure energy
Under the hood, that’s where it counts. Chevrolet Sonic’s powerful 1.6L
engine, offering up 115hp (net) of pure intent, is combined with your
choice of five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
A sporty suspension system has been developed and tuned by Chevrolet
Corvette engineers, and anti-lock braking is on board too—ready to back
you up in tricky situations. In Sonic, you’ll always be a step ahead.
S t ay c o n n e c t e d t o y o u r w o r l d
Never miss another moment of your life. Chevrolet Sonic keeps
you connected with Bluetooth connectivity, while handsfree lets you
stay in touch behind the wheel. The audio system packs a CD player,
MP3 playback and iPod connectivity, plus a hidden USB port to put you in
complete control of your tunes. Self Leveled Headlamps align themselves to
the vertical height of the road, and rear parking assist gives you eyes in the back
of your head. Total control.
Big on the inside
Sometimes life comes with baggage, so for the times you can’t just
jump in and go Chevrolet Sonic’s spacious interior gives you all sorts
of storage options. Massive pockets on either side of the upper center
stack make plenty of space available, while a huge glove box features
a large concealed area for your important stuff. Available 60/40 splitfolding rear seats make storing larger items no bother at all—so you can just
get on with it. Nice!

G M DIFFERENCE
At General Motors, we believe in making a difference. Our relationship with you doesn’t end
when you buy your car. On the contrary, that’s when it begins. And what keeps it going is our
commitment to your Total Peace of Mind. For this reason, we created the GM D!fference.
MIDDLE EAST VEHICLE TESTING
• GM cars are rigorously tested in this region’s harsh conditions.
• Some features, such as A/C and paint, are specifically developed with the Middle East in mind.
BUMPER TO BUMPER 3-YEAR/100,000 KM WARRANTY
• Free repair on materials and workmanship of guaranteed parts for 3 years/100,000 km on all
Chevrolet vehicles.
COMMITTED TO SAFETY
• By designing and manufacturing the safest cars, as well as promoting responsible driving,
GM makes safety the number one priority.
• Prime examples of GM’s dedication to safety are dual-stage airbags, electronic stability systems,
and anti-lock braking systems.
ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE
• GM is the only manufacturer in the region to offer free emergency assistance or recovery 24 hours
a day, 365 days a year, wherever you are in the Middle East.
CHILD SAFETY
Protect your child by installing a child seat engineered to survive crash forces.
Unlike your arms, it’s the safest method available for child protection in a car accident.
FIND THE RIGHT SEAT
•Use an infant-only seat for infants up to 14 kg. Keep it rear-facing and semi-reclined.
Be sure the harness comes from slots at or below the baby’s shoulders and is snug when buckled.
•Use your convertible child seat in a forward-facing and upright position for toddlers and children
between 14 and 30 kg. Be sure the harness straps are coming from above the child’s shoulders.
•For children between 30 and 45 kg use a belt-positioning-booster seat.
•Children over 46 kg must pass the safety-belt-fit criteria before wearing a normal car safety belt.
•Knees should bend naturally at the edge of the seat.
•The lap belt should sit low on the hips.
•The shoulder part of the seatbelt should rest on the shoulder or collarbone.
•The child should be able to maintain this position the length of your trip.
NEVER DO THIS
GM PARTS
• GM has the most comprehensive parts network in the Middle East.
• Our certified parts retailers stock genuine parts that comply with the most stringent Motor Vehicle
Safety Standards.
GM ACADEMY FOR EXCELLENCE
• The Academy is a world-class training system covering every aspect of the business to support
the GM D!fference.
GM CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED VEHICLES
• Select Chevrolet dealers also sell pre-owned cars with a number of benefits, such as 110+ point
inspection and reconditioning, comprehensive warranty, 7-day satisfaction guarantee and 24-hour
GM Roadside Assistance.
GM ASSISTANCE CENTRES
• The Customer Communication Centre allows you to contact us directly to resolve any issue you might
have with your vehicle or the service.
• The Technical Assistance Centre helps our retailer network address any issue with your
vehicle efficiently.
ALWAYS REMEMBER
•Place all children under 13 in a back seat.
•Never place a rear-facing child seat in front of an airbag.
•Use a child seat for all children until they can safely wear the adult seatbelt.
•Be sure you have one seatbelt for every person.
•NEVER place the shoulder belt under the arm or behind the back.
•Be sure all child seats are locked into the car using the LATCH system or the seatbelt.
