Chevrolet will be producing the Sonic Dusk sedan, which offers a higher level sophistication to the subcompact segment. Chevrolet will bring the production intent Sonic Dusk to the SEMA Show, which opens on Oct. 30 in Las Vegas. It is the first of a wide range of stylized small cars to come from the company.
The vehicle that will be seen at the SEMA show has a production-intent package, which includes ground effects, a rear spoiler and large, 18-inch aluminum wheels with a Pearl Nickel finish. The Ashen Grey Sonic Dusk gets a refined, contemporary look with the addition of elegant touches. Chevrolet gave a matte finish to the upper and lower grilles, door handle inserts and rear license plate trim.
Meanwhile, the body gets more upscale with its stainless steel lower window moldings. The interior of the Sonic Dusk gets Jet Black leather-trimmed seats with suede accents and Mojave tan inserts. The cabin’s ambience is enhanced with its Mojave accent stitching and tan-color door panel and instrument panel accents.
It also features Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system, which incorporates a smartphone and stored media (via Bluetooth, plug-in outlet or USB) with the radio. Powering the Sonic Dusk is the Ecotec 1.4L turbocharged engine, which has an output of 138hp (103 kW) and 148 lb.-ft. of torque (200 Nm) between 1,850 rpm and 4,900 rpm.
The wide rpm range for the maximum torque (which is a trait distinct to turbocharged engines) helps the engine to offer an improved driving experience and performance. The engine is partnered with a six-speed transmission while the production models are available with either a six-speed manual or automatic.
