Nice ride. I thought these things were pretty ugly when I first seen em, but they eventually grew on me. And I like the "motorcycle inspired" dash. I wish they came with the 1.4 turbo in the lower models as well.

The 1.4 turbo is an option engine so should be available on lower models.

I don't mind the new Sonics but I'd prefer the sedan style vs the hatch if I had to have one.

Certainly more edgy looking than the Chevy Cruze....

Not what I would buy, but to each his own. Do something about the chrome rings on the tail lights though.

I can't rag on the car. My sister has one of these and to be honest I was impressed with the quality they put in the car, so congrats.

I jest about the rear end being missing but I like the looks too. Those wheels are pretty cool looking also. I've been seeing tons of these cars running around the roads and they look like they"re fun to drive.
