About Chevrolet Sonic

Chevrolet markets the 2012 Chevrolet Aveo under the Chevrolet Sonic nameplate in the Americas, Japan, the Middle East, South Africa and several Southeast Asian markets.

In Australia and New Zealand, it was sold as the Holden Barina until stocks ran out in early 2019. In Europe, it retained the “Aveo” name, although sales ended there in 2014 as the Chevrolet brand was discontinued in Europe.

On August 2, 2011, the Sonic entered production at Orion Assembly, with the first cars arriving at dealerships in October. The Sonic was the only subcompact car sold in North America that was built in the United States.

The Sonic used a water-based “three-wet” paint process that eliminates the need for a primer bake oven; this reduced the paint shop footprint by 10%, and used 50% less energy per vehicle painted. Chevy was the first US automaker to use this process.

The Chevrolet Bolt (based on a different platform) joined the Aveo/Sonic on the Orion assembly line in 2016, at a combined rate of 90,000 per year.

The Barina sold in Australia and New Zealand was sourced from South Korea and only available with the 1.6-litre, with either a 5-speed manual or conventional 4- or 6-speed automatic.
