While reviews have been touting the Chevrolet Sonic to be the best-performing and handling car in its class, it isn’t enough to grab the attention of those looking for a lithe small hatchback. Despite this, General Motors currently has no plans to produce a proposed SS version of the Sonic (Super Sonic?).
However, John Buttermore, the Sonic’s lead development engineer did hint to Ward’s Auto that they “have some sportier versions coming, just not an SS.” We will make the assumption that he’s just talking about an RS version. Bummer, as Ford seems to have no problem with launching a high-performance Fiesta.
