With an ever-expanding product portfolio in South Africa, Chevrolet offers two formidable lifestyle-focused vehicles, each aimed at achieving different lifestyle objectives and each enabling the driver to extend their personality through the vehicle they drive. Sonic RS – A Cheeky Little Number Featuring one of the motoring world’s most iconic nameplate designations, the RS version of the Chevrolet Sonic seeks to add verve and pizzazz to the daily commute, with a bit of cheeky fun thrown in for when the road is clear and the driver’s blood is pumping fast. The Sonic RS is powered by a new-age 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which delivers oodles of power and torque (103 kW and 200 Nm) through a slick 6-speed manual gearbox to its sexy dark-painted alloy wheels. The RS boasts an exterior that shouts about the vehicle’s athletic appeal featuring special RS design details like the rear wing and diffuser. The interior is bathed in leather and also features RS-specific detailing like red stitching and RS badging to denote this as the performance derivative in the Sonic range. Conquer Anything in the Chevrolet Trailblazer The easy-to-drive Trailblazer is Chevrolet’s answer to your every lifestyle need, whether it be dropping the kids off at school, doing the weekly shopping trip or even taking the family away for a camping weekend. Large proportions and a high driving stance give off the typically superior driving environment of an SUV, and with seven full-size seats, a smartly-designed boot and excellent off-road capabilities, the Chevrolet Trailblazer really does tick all the boxes. Diesel and petrol engines are available with a mix of manual and automatic transmissions, as well as two- or four-wheel drive. Mylink Turns Sonic RS and Trailblazer Into True Lifestyle Extensions With the latest smartphones integral to the busy lives of many South Africans, Chevrolet’s new MyLink infotainment system allows the driver to turn their Sonic RS or Trailblazer into an extension of their lives with fully-integrated and seamless smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth, with a smart interface fronted by a 7-inch touch screen. Naturally incorporating hands-free telephony and top-quality audio streaming from any smartphone, the availability of downloadable apps like Internet radio, and the ability to play images and video via USB, means the Sonic RS or Trailblazer can be turned into a fully-connected mobile entertainment and information hub – all the while allowing for safer driving and enhanced usability.
