2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: Hot Hatch or Just a Pod?

August 28, 2012

The Sonic has been around here so long that it's become easy to take its looks for granted.

Then I met a guy for business over breakfast and he told me that he spotted me right away, since the red Sonic looks like a magazine test car, as if it doesn't really fit with the kind of cars you usually see in traffic.

And after thinking about it, the Sonic doesn't have the low, lean look that makes a Volkswagen GTI a sporting ride. Instead it's a little too tall, as if it were some kind of pod from France.
