Chevy has announced the introduction of the 2013 Chevy Sonic Dusk, which is going to debut at the 2012 SEMA show. According to Chevy, the Sonic Dusk has been “designed to bring a higher degree of sophistication and refinement to the subcompact segment.”
“Just like we’ve done with Corvettes and Camaros, we’re taking another one of our core products and adapting it to our customers’ lifestyles,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “The reaction to the Sonic Dusk concept last year was overwhelmingly positive and proved customers are interested in a more-refined subcompact. We’re moving quickly to bring Sonic Dusk to Chevrolet showrooms.”
The 2013 Chevy Sonic Dusk package adds ground effects, a rear spoiler and 18-inch aluminum wheels with a Pearl Nickel finish. It’s painted in Ashen Grey and the upper and lower grilles, door handle inserts and rear license plate trim are finished with a matte appearance with stainless steel lower window moldings.
Inside, Sonic Dusk features Jet Black leather seats with suede accents and Mojave tan inserts. The Sonic Dusk is powered by the 1.4L turbocharged engine that generates 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft. of torque.
“With a year under our belt, we’ve learned our Sonic sedan buyers are looking at exterior styling as a key purchase driver,” said Cristi Landy, marketing director of Chevrolet small cars. “While the RS hatchback is our sporty interpretation of Sonic, Dusk is a sophisticated, well contented option – both unique to this segment. It’s all about choices and personalization.”
