In the driveway: 2012 Chevrolet Sonic 5DR LTZ

Just got the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ five door. And yes, this is the 1.4-liter turbo with the six-speed manual. I have been looking forward to this one for a while.

I have literally only driven it about a half mile, but I could tell a couple of things: It's powerful. The small turbo engine makes good power down low. Also, it seems to handle well. There's a nice sweeping curve I took and handling appears to be very good. Can't comment on much other than I love the way it looks and the interior materials feel good. Can't wait put some seat time in on Chevy's hot hatch.

I liked the site better when it was with a dark background. The website seems too bright now.

Gotta say I like the looks of the base LS a bit better, without the chrome accents the high-series cars have. The one under the windows seems to start in the middle of nowhere and end in the middle of nowhere.
