Chevy has been developing a new small car for a few years now, and seems to have finally settled on the Sonic. As a replacement for the Aveo, the Sonic would be the company's smallest car, and unlike its predecessor, it is made in the U.S.
Replacing the Aveo at the bottom of the Chevrolet lineup is the all-new Sonic, a car that has been in development for quite some time. GM has shown little faith in past small cars, but the economic climate suggests the company may get behind this one. Its margins might not be high, but it will introduce entry-level buyers to the brand.
