Chevrolet is finding the task of convincing more buyers to "get small" slightly more complicated than comedian Steve Martin did back in the 1970s; of course he was referring to something other than cars. So, begin by first erasing everything in your memories of small Chevys from the past, because the all-new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic is a completely different creature. The all-new Sonic is bigger and bolder yet sips rather than gulps fuel.

Chevrolet's newest subcompact sedan and five-door hatch was conjured up by a global General Motors team before being fine-tuned for local markets. Here in the U.S., Chevy is pitching the Sonic as Chevy Cruze's little brother.

To that end Chevy's marketing team has decided to replace the Aveo nameplate in North America with a new moniker - enter the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic. General Motors' largest division is betting heavily on its new South Korean-designed Sonic subcompact, not only as a hedge against fluctuating spikes in gasoline prices, but also to meet the tough federal fuel-economy standards that started ramping up with the 2011 model year, and will reach a car-fleet-average of no less than 42 mpg come 2016.

Owners of select 2011 and 2012 Chevrolet Aveo and Sonic models can save money and improve overall performance today by simply replacing their existing air filter with a K&N 33-2476 reusable air filter. K&N air filters are designed to add power and torque to your vehicle. They have less restriction than typical paper air filters so your engine has to do less work to bring in air needed for combustion.

K&N's 33-2476 high-performance panel style air filter is a direct replacement for the existing stock air filter, meaning the installation procedure is exactly the same. So, without investing anymore time, effort, or making any modifications to your vehicle whatsoever, you can now boost performance.

What makes air filter 33-2476 even more beneficial, is that it will be the last air filter you'll ever need to buy for your Aveo or Sonic, because it's backed with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty. Plus, you won't even need to think about cleaning your 33-2476 reusable air filter for up to 50,000 trouble-free miles, depending on driving conditions, and K&N air filters offer excellent levels of air filtration and engine protection on top of all that. When it is finally time to clean the air filter, you simply service it with one of K&N's Recharger Kits, 99-5000 or 99-5050, and it's good to go for another 50,000 miles.
