Chevrolet’s presence at this year’s SEMA Show is just further proof that small cars can be fun, especially when outfitted with a range of accessories from Z-Spec - the company’s line of performance, styling, and personalization accessories.

The first concept - the Sonic Z-Spec #1 - is based on a turbocharged five-door Sonic. The concept is finished in a special Torch Red exterior finish with a set of 18-inch wheels to top it off. The exterior package also includes a Z-Spec spoiler, a unique grille, and a graphics package.

The interior of the Sonic Z-Spec brings in more dynamic red with a Cobalt Red cabin with custom trim, and perforated black suede seat inserts to compliment it. Other features include a Z-Spec sport pedal kit, sport shift knob, and a racing-style flat-bottom steering wheel. Additional upgrades include performance brakes with four-piston calipers, a new high-flow exhaust system, and performance suspension parts.

"The heritage of Chevrolet cars like the Corvette and Camaro is being expressed in smaller packages for the next generation," said Chris Perry, vice president, global marketing and strategy for Chevrolet. ’The Sonic and Cruze concepts demonstrate that performance comes in all shapes, sizes and displacements at Chevrolet."

The over-all feature of this Sonic is absolutely very awesome on it, which gives me the idea that this vehicle is truly a satisfying car. I just wonder if it could also have a striking speed performance?

This one is already looking great on its aesthetic design and body paint, and I love the way how they matched the interior of this one to its exterior design. Well, I must say that it is a very satisfying car.

Well, I love the additional upgrades that they put on this Chevrolet Sonic and I have to agree that it is already looking great on that design and to its other detailing. I just only hope that they will use an impressive engine as well for this one.

It is already looking great on its body paint and aesthetic design. This one is absolutely very striking and appealing, but I hope that it also had an impressive engine and horsepower.
