On sale now, the Chevy Sonic is GM's fun-to-drive replacement for the late, unlamented Aveo. The RS version, unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, takes the performance up a notch or two with a 138 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine and four-wheel disc brakes. (Other Sonics have rear drum brakes.) The suspension has also been stiffened for better cornering.
In case you haven't noticed, Detroit's been turning out some very good cars, lately. Here's a sampling.
