2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: Kinda Dig The Headlights
March 29, 2012
This may sound strange, but I'm intrigued by the Sonic's headlights. More than anything, for their lack of a clear shield covering them. I was surprised when I noticed this the first time I walked around the front of the little Chevy.
So many cars these days have intricate head- and taillight designs, but we're almost always barred from getting close, reaching out and physically touching the headlights, due to a protective lens covering the entire unit.
The Sonic's headlights certainly don't have the most intricate detailing, but for some weird reason I dig the fact that they are devoid of an all-encompassing plastic shroud.
Probably not the most aerodynamic design, though.
