    Still Not Officially Discontinued, the Chevrolet Sonicís Days Are Numbered

    One of the more vibrant paint choices for the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic is ďRed HotĒ ó a name that most certainly does not accurately describe the Sonicís U.S. sales. Chevyís Michigan-built subcompact remains in the Chevy lineup for the coming model year, joined by an Impala that sees its production end in January, and accompanied […]

    Re: Still Not Officially Discontinued, the Chevrolet Sonicís Days Are Numbered

    To put it another way, more than twice as many Americans bought a Chevy Cruze in Q3 ó a vehicle killed off this past spring ó than they did a Sonic. And thatís after GM offered $2,000 off the already affordable Sonic in September (and nearly the same amount off the month before). Currently, thereís $1,000 in discounts to be had on a 2020 model, with the base LS sedan ringing in at $16,595 after destination.
    This from the article. It really makes one wonder about GM and their current state of mind. But we know the drill, Zero, Zero, Zero baby come Hell or high water.

    To me the Malibu is too big, the Spark too small, the Sonic juuuuust right. But hey that’s just me. That said, it’s a big hole in the Chevy lineup if they’re only going to be selling the Spark and Malibu going forward. One that Honda, Toyota, and Hyundai, among others, are more than happy to fill.

    Next ride: Maybe a 2020 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD

    the Cruze in the AMERICAN market for the same money as the sonic was the "issue" I was referring to and GM's post sedan homicide they take the 'bu and discount it to CRUZE pricing as the "final" nail

    BUT imho the Cruze should have seen another day
    - spark - Cruze - Malibu fills out nicely BUT NO Cruze/Sonic and 19K pricing on the 'BU is a sign the 'BU=Corolla/Civic NOT the size alike cam-cord

    Agree about the Cruze. I’d be fine if they replaced both the Sonic and Cruze with a single vehicle, call it a Cruze if you like. Something between the Spark and Malibu for people like me that won’t buy a Trax/Encore/etc.
