2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS: First Drive
Chevrolet’s resurgence in the small car segment has been well documented via the praise heaped on vehicles like the compact Chevrolet Cruze and the subcompact Chevrolet Sonic, especially in comparison to the bland models that came before them. One area where Chevrolet has yet to make a splash, however, has been in the small car performance scene. Although competitors such as Honda and Ford have pushed forward hot hatches and coupes of their own, Chevrolet has stayed on the sidelines until now with the impending debut of the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS hatchback. We recently had the chance to pilot the new Sonic RS along some challenging Californian roads, and we came away with a strong impression that someone at General Motors is taking the concerns of those seeking an affordable, sporty car quite seriously.
