    Let us hope it is the 2.0L 270hp from the Regal GS . . . actually the 1.4L turbo from the cruze is nice too

    Re: Sonic Turbo!

    I'm really looking forward to trying this car out. Am planning on getting a small car for work commute and this is on my list. I'm hoping it is a near polar opposite of the current Aveo.

    Ironically I am renting an Aveo this week. Hatch, LTZ (leatherette trim), etc... This thing absolutely kills my inner child. Any smiles I might posess are completely destroyed the minute I start the thing.

    Saw a Sonic LTZ 5-door on Saturday, no turbo badge.

    It gets you where you want to go, does it not?

    If all a car represents to you is basic transportation, then you should drive a Toyota. To most here a car should be fun and enjoyable, an extension of our personalities, the opposite of an appliance-like Toyota or ugly little buzzbox Aveo that just gets you where you're going.

    The rear design looks incomplete IMO. Similar to the current Malibu. They should have gone with a horizontal taillight design instead of a vertical one. The vertical design doesn't really matches up with the rest of the car.

    Re: Sonic Turbo!

    I prefer the hatchback Sonic over the sedan..

    I like the interior of the vehicle...and I like the headlight, tailight details too.

    I believe GM has done quite an admirable job with this vehicle. Weighing in 500 lbs less than the cruze..it should be pretty quick...

    Of course the 2.0 liter 250hp turbo motor would rape the GTI and should be on the planning boards for GM sooner rather than later..
