Chevrolet Sonic Performance Concept shown ahead of 2014 SEMA Show

Article by Christian A., on October 22, 2014

For this year’s 2014 SEMA Show, Chevrolet prepared a performance-oriented of the Sonic hatchback designed for a new generation of enthusiasts. Dubbed Sonic Performance Concept, the new concept comes with a Chevrolet Performance Stage Kit that includes a cold-air induction and high-flow exhaust system in order to boost the power of the 1.4-liter turbo petrol engine.

Moreover, there is a track-tuned suspension developed by Chevrolet Performance that lowers the ride of the concept for better stability. The vehicle is finished in Synergy Green, complemented by a white stripe package.

In addition, the Sonic Performance Concept features white headlamp rings, tail lamp rings, grille surround, mirror covers and rear spoiler from Chevrolet Accessories. The ground effects package as well as the 17-inch aluminum wheels in white.

Inside, Chevrolet Accessories offers carpeted floor mats, door sills and a new set of sport pedals. Just like the standard version, the Sonic Performance Concept features an advanced safety package that includes forward collision alert, lane departure warning and a rear vision camera.

From all sides, Chevrolet’s Sonic sedan and five-door models communicate power, steadiness, and sophistication. A broad, firm posture, with sturdy dimensions, communications functionality. Continuous, slope body lines imply motion even when the automobile is not moving.

Dominant touches, such as flared fenders and rounded motorcycle-inspired headlights, are combined with broader design elements - a twin-element grille and rounded taillights - for a design immediately identifiable as a Chevrolet. The front edge of the bonnet creates a character outline over the headlights that flow in a smooth silhouette exemplified by continuous body profile lines, a raised waistline, and low roof line. The side mirrors have the same form as the vehicle and blend seamlessly into the silhouette.

The sedan and five-door models are particularly distinct. The five-door has a sharp, two-box shape with powerful, swooping feature outlines, and the sedan's "notchback" form has a more fashionable and developed charisma. On first look, the five-door version looks like a hatchback due to the rear door handles being discreetly placed around the C-pillar. The five-door’s rear carries on with progressive details, such as open, motorcycle-inspired tail lights.
