why just go from A to B
When Imagination can take you everywhere
The road. A simple path, really. And yet it’s come to mean so much
more. Perhaps the real reason roads are special is that every road
leads us to someplace we’re not — but could be. At Chevrolet,
roads are our springboards. They challenge us, taunt us and
guide us to create better, more exciting, more ingenious ways
to move through life. Roads drive us to places we’ve never
been before. And we’ll never stop seeking out new ones.

A CAR FOR FIRSTS Chevrolet Sonic is the first and only small car in
its class1 to receive a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety from
NHTSA.2 With its available turbocharged engine, Sonic offers up
to 40 MPG on the highway.3 It’s also the only small car built
right here in the United States.4 And for the second year in a
row, Sonic was recognized by the J.D. Power APEAL Study as
the “Highest Ranked Vehicle Appeal among Sub-Compact
Cars.”5 Sonic invites everyone to experience life with
three words: Let’s do this!
2012 and 2013 Sonic

modern art Sonic Dusk, planned to be available late
Spring 2014, will arrive with the refined style of a
premium sedan. The subtle Ashen Gray Metallic
exterior is contrasted by matte-finish upper and lower
grilles, door handle inserts and decklid trim. A ground
effects package, rear spoiler and 18-inch aluminum
wheels with Midnight Silver finish complete the
modern aesthetic.
Under the hood, the ECOTEC� 1.4L turbocharged
4-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing gives
you all the power you want. Standard 4-wheel
antilock front and rear disc brakes give you added
peace of mind.
Inside, Jet Black leather-appointed seats with sueded
microfiber accents and Mojave inserts set the tone
for a pure driving experience. Mojave stitching and
contrasting door and instrument panel accents
enhance the overall mood. Sonic Dusk is also equipped
with a rear vision camera and the Chevrolet MyLink1
Radio, which integrates your smartphone and stored
media by way of Bluetooth®2 wireless technology,
plug-in auxiliary outlet or USB port.3

COMFORT WITH AN EDGE Yeah, Sonic has an urban
edge. But it’s made for comfort too. The seats were
designed for you and your friends to kick back and
enjoy the ride. That’s easy to do with the perforated
leatherette seats in LTZ or the leather-appointed
seats with sueded microfiber inserts in RS.
Both models include heated seats for the driver and
front passenger. And Sonic makes getting around town a
breeze with OnStar® Turn-by-Turn Navigation,1 standard
for the first six months. Just press the blue button
and tell the OnStar Advisor where you want to go.

GO AHEAD AND LOAD IT UP
MORE SPACE AND MORE WAYS TO USE IT.
Don’t hold back Sonic Sedan offers 14.9 cubic feet
of trunk space, which is more room than you’ll find in
Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. Hatchback offers
ample cargo space and many ways to get it. Seating
for five with 19 cubic feet of cargo space1 will carry
your friends and everything you need. With its 60/40
split-folding rear seat and up to 47.7 cubic feet of

cargo space1 with the rear seats folded down, you’ll be
able to find a configuration that’s just right, whether
you’re heading to the beach or grabbing groceries
after work.
A place for everything Sonic also gives you unique
storage solutions for everything you want to keep
within reach, including upper and lower glove boxes.
Bringing a water bottle with you? There are holders
incorporated right into the front doors. And in
Hatchback you’ll find convenient hidden storage
compartments. So whatever you’re loading up, Sonic is
versatile enough to carry everything you need in style.

SONIC BRINGS IT ALL It may be a blast to drive, but
underneath the hood, Sonic is not kidding around. An
ECOTEC 1.8L engine with 138 horsepower is standard
on LS, LT and LTZ. For RS, the ECOTEC 1.4L turbocharged
4-cylinder with Variable Valve Timing is standard,
giving you 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque.

LT and LTZ offer up to 40 MPG highway.1 How many
cars do all this? With this unique combination of
power and efficiency, it should come as no surprise
that Consumers Digest recognized the 2013 Sonic as
a “Best Buy” for Subcompact Cars.

variations to find the sport-tuned sedan within the
subcompact. The result is the amazing agility and
athleticism of Sonic. The standard ECOTEC 1.8L I-4

control of driving back in your hands. This efficient

and impressive power, but make no mistake — with
Sonic, safety is a priority. It’s the first and only car in its
class2 to receive a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety
from NHTSA.1 And the 2013 Sonic was named a 2013 Top
Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety (IIHS). Innovative safety technology is designed
to enhance safety before, during and after a crash, if
needed. Other advancements you can count on —
including daytime running lamps and a Tire Pressure
Monitoring System3 — also help you avoid trouble on
the road.
if your Sonic begins to drift across lanes without
signaling. Also new for 2014 is the available rear vision
camera.4 When you shift into Reverse, the available
Chevrolet MyLink5 Radio with a 7-inch diagonal display
allows you to see if anything is in your way. And when
Sonic takes off, safety technology like the StabiliTrak®
Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control
kicks in. On slippery roads, StabiliTrak helps you stay on
course by detecting the difference between the path
being steered and the direction the vehicle is traveling.
It then uses the brakes and, if necessary, adjusts engine
torque to keep your Sonic on track.
Prevent All-new for the 2014 Sonic, the Advanced
Protect Sometimes, unfortunately, trouble finds you.
Safety Package helps you avoid a collision altogether.
The package includes Forward Collision Alert, which
issues a warning sound to alert you to a possible
collision, and Lane Departure Warning that alerts you
If a moderate to severe collision does occur, Sonic is
designed to respond quickly — it’s the first and only
car in its class2 with 10 standard air bags.6 Sensors
throughout the vehicle determine how many air bags
deploy — including knee air bags for the driver and front
passenger. Adding to this protection, the cabin is
reinforced with high-strength steel throughout.
Meanwhile, front and rear “crush zones” are designed
to compress in a controlled manner, helping absorb and
channel energy away from the cabin. But our protective
measures don’t end there.
Respond In many crashes, built-in sensors can
automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is
immediately connected into the vehicle to see if you
need help. Even if you don’t respond, the Advisor can
use GPS technology to pinpoint your exact location and
request emergency help be sent immediately. It’s part of
the OnStar Directions & Connections Plan, featuring
Automatic Crash Response,7 standard for the first six
months. Why? It’s simple: Your safety is important.

different operating units of General Motors, its subsidiaries or suppliers to GM worldwide.
We sometimes find it necessary to produce Chevrolet vehicles with different or differently

your vehicle is assembled, we suggest you verify that your vehicle includes the equipment you
ordered and that, if there were changes, they are acceptable to you.
ONSTAR. OnStar services require vehicle electrical system (including battery), wireless

IMPORTANT WORDS ABOUT THIS CATALOG. We have tried to make this catalog
comprehensive and factual. We reserve the right, however, to make changes at any time,
without notice, in prices, colors, materials, equipment, specifications, models and availability.
Specifications, dimensions, measurements, ratings and other numbers in this catalog and
other printed materials provided at the dealership or affixed to vehicles are approximations
based on design and engineering drawings, prototypes and laboratory tests. Your vehicle may
differ due to variations in manufacture and equipment. Since some information may have
been updated since the time of printing, please check with your Chevrolet dealer for complete
details. Chevrolet reserves the right to lengthen or shorten the model year for any product
for any reason or to start and end model years at different times. Certain vehicle features
may lose their usefulness over time due to obsolescence from technological changes. Unless
otherwise noted, all claims based on GM Small Car segment and latest available competitive
information. Excludes other GM vehicles.
spare tire information. There is no standard jack or spare tire in the 2014 Chevrolet
Sonic LT Sedan with ECOTEC 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed manual
transmission. Your vehicle has a tire sealant and compressor kit that uses a liquid tire sealant
to temporarily seal up to a one-quarter-inch puncture in the tread area of the tire. After
using the tire inflator kit, it is recommended that you take the tire to an authorized retailer
for inspection and repair as soon as possible, but at least within 100 miles of driving. The tire
sealant cannot seal and inflate sidewall damage, punctures larger than one-quarter inch, or
a tire that has unseated from the wheel. The sealant can only be used on one tire and for one
time before its expiration date.
FLEET ORDERS. Some standard content may be deleted on fleet orders. See dealer for details.
