The car known in the US as the Sonic RS has recently been spotted with no disguise on European roads, indicating an Aveo version.
It will be powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter Ecotec engine with 140 horsepower. This will likely be mated exclusively to a six-speed manual gearbox.
Changes over the regular Aveo will include four-wheel disk brakes as standard, a full body kit, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a lowered and stiffened suspension by MacPherson with performance-tuned dampers. Don’t expect 0 to 100 km/h times of under 8 seconds though.
