We knew that Chevrolet has invested significant sums for the 2019 model year on the Spark (not to mention the Cruze and Cruze Hatchback as well as the Malibu) after executives said they see volume and market share opportunities in the small car segment moving forward. However, it seems like there was no longer enough room for two Chevy models after a few years of coexistence.

In the end, it’s highly likely that not too many people will lose sleep over the demise of the Sonic.
