On topic! I saw another rumour: the Chevrolet Sonic is living on borrowed time in the States.


It was dropped in Canada this year.


Niky: I don't think it's mostly about fuel prices. Manufacturers are also eager to get people into crossovers that are based on a shared subcompact platform because the starting MSRP of the crossover is often many thousands of $ higher than the non-subcompact, even with similar fuel economy (same drivetrain) and utility. EG: Chevy Sonic and the Trax. Mazda 3 and CX3. Nissan Micra and Kicks.
