2013 Chevy Sonic LTZ SedanEveryone’s favorite compact hatchback in the Cincinnati area is getting two new models for 2014. The 2014 Chevy Sonic, which is now available at Tom Gill Chevy in Florence, KY, will be available in a couple of new versions. Cincinnati customers will be happy to learn that the sporty RS trim, which was previously only available as a hatchback, is now available as a sedan. Also, the Sonic Dusk, a concept car that debuted at the 2013 SEMA Show, has finally made it into production. Read on to find out more details about these two exciting cars.

  • The new 2014 Chevy Sonic RS sedan mirrors the features of the hatchback Sonic RS. You get the same 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for 138 hp. While this is the same power output as the base engine, it actually makes more torque, and feels more spirited due to different gearing. The RS Sedan, like the hatchback, also gets a sportier tuned suspension and a lower ride height. The RS sedan also has upgraded disc brakes, while the base model is equipped with drums. Inside, the RS Sedan gets leatherette and faux suede seats, aluminum pedals, and a unique shift knob.
  • The 2014 Chevy Sonic Dusk receives a bunch of unique features; mostly these were ported directly from the concept car shown at the SEMA show. You get a two-tone interior, with Mojave accents on a jet black base color. You get a unique Ashen Grey Metallic finish, matt-silver 18 inch aluminum wheels, along with matte grille inserts. You also get unique ground effects. The Sonic Dusk can only be ordered as a sedan and gets the same 1.4L turbocharged 138 hp four-cylinder. While the Sonic Dusk doesn’t have any other performance up grades, it does get the upgraded disc brakes that are otherwise only found on the Sonic RS models.

If you’re looking to get behind the wheel of the Chevy sonic and you want to drive something unique, then check out the 2014 Chevy Sonic RS sedan and the 2014 Chevy Sonic Dusk, coming soon to your local Cincinnati Chevy dealer, Tom Gill Chevrolet.
