Manhattan, KA (PRWEB) November 25, 2011
AT Briggs Supercenter - the premiere used car dealer in Manhattan, Kansas - they are excited about the new 2012 Chevy Sonic. While they are not selling it yet, they think it is an important part of the future of vehicles. They do offer a great selection of used Chevy models, however, so they know all about the brand.
Ashley Johnson is an office clerk and college student. She was one of the first consumers in the United States to own a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic. As a commuter to and from school, she thought the Sonic was a reliable, safe, and very fuel-efficient subcompact. Additionally, she knew it was the only sub-compact still built in the good old USA.
“Since I am 25 and just starting my family, I wanted my first new car to be something that reflected my age and personality,” Johnson said. “When I first saw the Sonic, I fell in love with its style and practicality, and after driving it and enjoying how it handled, I had to own one.”
Bill Visnic, senior editor for Edmunds' AutoObserver.com, has said that for years consumers have been told to think that shopping imports was the only way to find good small cars. This is not true all the time, however, especially in the 21st century with American auto makers fighting to make a comeback - and succeeding in many ways.
“The 2012 Chevy Sonic turns that notion 180 degrees – it has the crisp driving characteristics, terrific fuel efficiency and excellent value that used to be the exclusive traits of Japanese small cars,” Visnic said. “The Sonic is likely to set the new standard in its class, and being built in America adds an intriguing advantage.”
Johnson said her favorite Sonic features include the keyless entry, which helped out quite a bit when she has to carry her daughter in a car seat. She also really likes the amount of trunk space. The digital displays on the dash that clearly indicate speed, miles per gallon and remaining fuel are also very useful.
“The Chevy Sonic was the perfect car for me,” she said. “It fulfills every single one of my needs.”
While the Chevy Sonic is not yet a used car, when it is one you can be sure that Briggs Supercenter will have a good selection. As the leading used car dealer in Kansas, they have a great selection of many different makes and models in all price ranges.
