Chevrolet has publicly revealed the Sonic RS and Sonic Dusk sedans at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The sedan version of the Sonic RS hatchback will come fitted with the same 1.4-liter EcoTec turbocharged gasoline engine outputting 138 hp (103 kW) and 200 Nm (148 lb-ft) of torque that will be sent to the front axle through a six-speed manual gearbox. It also features a sport-tuned suspension and a slightly more aggressive exterior.
The cabin has received aluminum sport deals and a three-spoke flat-bottomed steering wheel wrapped around in leather with contrasting stitching. The Sonic RS Sedan has also gained leather-covered front bucket seats with red accents. The model comes with a starting price of 20,530 USD, including 825 USD destination fee.
On the other hand, Sonic Dusk Sedan is essentially a production version of a concept shown back in 2011 at SEMA. It will come with an Ashen Grey Metallic exterior paint and will ride on 18-inch alloy wheels featuring a Midnight Silver matte finish. It has the same engine and four-wheel disc brakes as the RS and inside the cabin it has received Jet Black leather-trimmed seats with sueded microfiber accents.
This version will kick off from 20,945 USD and that includes destination fee.
In related news, Chevrolet has announced that for the 2014 model year the Sonic will be offered with optional goodies such as a cold-air induction, lowering suspension kit, brake package with Wilwood front calipers and an 18-inch wheel & tire combo. More importantly, there’s a turbo stage kit featuring a high-flow exhaust that bumps output by 10 bhp (7.5 kW) and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm).
