CLOSE UP: New Chevrolet Sonic 1.4LTZ
“Fun Ride, Now” – that’s the tagline of the new Chevrolet Sonic which was launched by the brand’s sole distributor in Malaysia, Naza Quest. The target market's younger generation such as young-upcoming executives and first-time-workers. The new Sonic comes with fresh styling, agile driving dynamics and a spirited engine – all within a competitive price tag.
Ok, we are not too sure about the quoted statement… but, that’s what Naza Quest promises.
The new Chevrolet Sonic is available in two different variants: five-door hatchback and four-door sedan. Both versions are powered by 1.4-litre Ecotec D-CVCP engine with a maximum output of 99hp and 130Nm of torque that is coupled together with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic and toggle switch. The car’s suspension has been also been given what the company referred to as “Euro-Ride Tuning” treatment that promises smoother drive and better handling on the road. Claimed Maximum Speed's 175km/h and claimed 0-100km/h's 12.9 sec - PATHETIC RIGHT?
In terms of design, the most eye-catching parts of the new Chevrolet Sonic is its unique quad-bezel headlamp and chrome finished tail lamps. Interior wise, the Chevrolet Sonic is equipped with two-tone dashboard and features a motorcycle-inspired dash meter complete with analogue rev meter and digital speedometer.
The In-car-entertainment's integrated radio, CD and MP3 player that is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and USB port along with audio control in the steering wheel. There’s also the quintessential (in my book) 60/40 split-folding rear seat, Dual airbags and rear boot space of 466-litre for the sedan variant as well as 253-litre for hatchback.
Available in five shades of colours – Black, Gray, Oceanic Blue, Silver and Solid White – the asking price for the New Chevrolet Sonic's RM 76,888 for the sedan and RM 78,888 for hatchback. For more information, please visit Chevrolet Malaysia’s official website at www.chevrolet.com.my.
Sadly, test drive unit's unavailable during my Visit to Naza Quest TTDI Showroom and I don't recommend any salesperson. If you have OUTSTANDING Salesperson, do recommend to me.
