The Chevrolet Sonic was recently unveiled at the North American International Auto Show. The Sonic is not the new Aveo, its simply a new model which will replace the Aveo. GM is planing to discontinue the Aveo brand as it has not met with much success. While the Sonic name really does not sound exciting, the car surely does look the part. It is expected to be launched in India, once GMI discontinues the Aveo. It will be launched in both hatchback and sedan versions.
