2013 L.A. Auto Show – 2014 Chevrolet Sonic Dusk Gets Launched as Sonic RS Gets Priced

2013 L.A. Auto Show – 2014 Chevrolet Sonic Dusk Gets Launched as Sonic RS Gets PricedThe production 2014 Chevrolet Sonic Dusk took a bow this week at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, providing an option for subcompact buyers looking for a small, peppy, yet attractive new car to buy.  The Sonic Dusk will cost $20,945, and comes with exterior touches such as 18-inch silver matte wheels, a rear spoiler and a special body kit.  The car, which is based on a 2011 SEMA concept vehicle, also includes four-wheel disc brakes, which is also found on the higher-performance Sonic RS (see below).

Special touches abound on the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic Dusk, may it be outside or inside; the car comes with a distinct Ashen Gray Metallic finish with matte grille accents, while black leather seats with suede microfiber accents adorn the interior of the vehicle.  As a subcompact, its powertrain is nothing special, as the base engine is a 1.4-liter turbo four producing 138 horsepower.  However, buyers looking for added pep can choose the 1.4-liter Turbo Stage Kit, which supposedly adds 10 horses and 15 lb/ft. torque to the turbo four engine.

As for the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic RS, this particular model’s pricing is now official, as the sedan will cost $20,530 for a base model, or $580 less than the hatchback variant’s $21,150 price point.  Both prices are inclusive of destination charges.  Like the Sonic Dusk, the Sonic RS is powered by the same turbo four engine, which can be mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.  Other standard features on the RS include sport-tuned suspension and reduced ride height, as well as aluminum pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather bucket seats and fog lights.
