The Chevrolet Sonic RS Chevrolet South Africa recently announced that the Chevrolet Sonic RS will be one of the stars of their stand at the Johannesburg International Motor Show next week. The Sonic RS forms part of an exclusive special vehicle twosome that will be on show. The other high performance sports car which has not been named will remain under wraps until the media day on 17 October.

Due for release in South Africa in the first quarter of 2014, the Sonic RS will add a performance model to the current Sonic range, the five-door hatchback will feature a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a 103 kW of power, the Sonic RS will also boast improved handling to match the boosted performance.

A number of special detailing changes on the Sonic RS will help it standout from the Sonic range. Notable features include a sportier exterior look, dark-painted alloy wheels, red interior detailing and the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, which makes its South African debut in the Chevrolet Sonic RS.

Look out for it at the Johannesburg International Motor Show running from the 18th to the 27th of October at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec, Johannesburg.
