Chevrolet unveiled in Detroit a new small car that will be available in North-America under the 'Sonic' badge.

It's a welcome addition to the truck-heavy GM lineup and an all-new version of a car that is sold as the Aveo in some places, but Chevrolet is trying to rebrand it completely as the Sonic, so don't mention the Aveo in their presence.

The Av... Sonic will be available as a 2012 model in two different body configurations: a 4-door sedan and a 5-door hatch.
