Chevrolet Sonic: the design

General Motors has released an official video where the designers of the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic talk about their approach to creating the brand’s latest subcompact vehicle.


The Chevrolet Sonic was presented at the 2011 Detroit Motor Show in two body variants – a hatchback and a sedan – and is the only subcompact vehicle to be built in the U.S. by any manufacturer.

Design director John Mack and lead designer Allen Kim talk about the distinctive styling cues, the importance of color and the presence of design elements inspired by motorcycle design – such as the round headlights and exposed taillights.
