Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback History

Debut: 2012 (replaced Chevrolet Aveo)
Type: Compact hatchback
Rivals: Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris, Hyundai Accent, Nissan Versa Note

Technically, the Chevrolet Sonic started out as the Aveo, which debuted in 2002 as a inexpensive small car. It was quickly stereotyped as a cheap and unreliable people mover. However, it did last for 10 years until the Sonic nameplate was placed on the rear. Now, the Sonic is a viable alternative to its more prominent competition.
