There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that the despite a majority of Japanese automakers in its fold, the Tokyo Auto Salon is fast becoming a global event, so much so, that an auto brand like Chevrolet is heading over to Japan to introduce a bevy of new concepts.

One of these concepts is called the Chevrolet Sonic Street Edition, a unique trim of the company’s popular subcompact hatchback that we expect to hit the Japanese market in the coming months.

Among the many distinguishable characteristics of the Sonic Street Edition, few can come close to the new aero kit fitted into the car from 3D Carbon. On top of that, the Sonic Street Edition will also receive some fancy matte black bonnet brides, as well as a height-adjustable sports suspension, and a set of 18-inch Gianna Blitz black rims with red inserts.

That’s about all the information Chevrolet has released for the Sonic Street Edition. Rest assured, we’ll know more about the program when Chevy brings the vehicles to the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

This car does not make any sense, but it is kind of cool looking.

The Sonic is a good replacement overall vs. the old non-competitive Aveo.
