Chevrolet To Bring Aveo RS To Production As Sonic RS

By Carl Malek

General Motors once had plans to bring the upcoming Sonic small car to the market as the next-generation Aveo. However, after extensive evaluation, and perhaps looking back at the Aveo’s rather tepid sales numbers, GM reconsidered. The company decided that the name was not worth reusing and shelved it in favor of Sonic. However one problem arose from this decision, and that was the fate of the performance version of the Sonic. General Motors had already unveiled the Aveo RS concept at the 2010 North American International Autoshow, but would then not mention the fate of the performance variant after the switch from Aveo to Sonic was made. Since that time, many in the automotive world speculated that the Aveo RS would survive the name change and go into production as the Sonic RS but no official word or confimration had been released.
