Chevrolet Sedan spy shots - Click above for high-res image gallery

Our crack team of spy photographers have managed to set their lenses on an automotive quandary. Reports from the field say that this particular machine was spotted last year wearing even more camouflage, and that at the time, it was suspected that the vehicle could be the sedan successor to the Aveo. Now, though, we've seen the four-door Sonic that's heading to our market later this year, so our guess is that this particular vehicle isn't aiming to take the States.

That still doesn't answer exactly what the pint-sized four door is, nor does it give us any idea of where the production version will touch down.

There's some indication that General Motors is readying a new compact fighter to tango in markets in South America, India and China, and that the checkerboard prototype you see above is that very vehicle. Still, with the Sonic being manufactured in Korea, we have to wonder why GM would be interested in pursuing an additional model for the rest of Asia. We'll keep our ears down and our eyes open and let you know what we find.

      Looks like another dumb product line from dumb executives. When will they get it?
      • 3 Years Ago
      Must be a car for markets like Brazil or China.

      ...besides ugly as sin with that paint job?

        Unless they're re-introducing the Chevette, I would guess it's more about the motor/powertrain and less about the body. Probably cold-weather testing a new hybrid or electric motor. This is not uncommon.

        Cash9007 has effectively trolled you all. Grats!

        First i down voted you because of not funny joke, but if your really are not in a sarcasm mode you must be very new to this blog.

        It's camo and that thing firstly isn't most probably even painted to the car and secondly doesn't have anything to do with.... anything really.

        Those camo jobs are all the rage for unreleased cars, tho the body cladding on the rear is overkill yet again.
        • 3 Years Ago
        What's with the downvotes? Do people here seriously think that's attractive? I was a huge Rude Boy in the 80's, and even I'm balking at the Tutone Army paint scheme.

      I'm waiting for GM "Authority".com to state that it's the new "Zeta based Chevrolet sedan".

      Here recently, almost ANY camouflaged GM vehicle is a "Zeta based Chevrolet sedan"

      LOL

      " Still, with the Sonic being manufactured in Korea..."

      Not sure if you were referring to the Sonic for the North American market or not, but that model is being built in Michigan.

        Actually, they should say the new-generation Aveo is now being produced in South Korea. Vehicles with the Sonic name - a de-scramble of "Scion" btw - is slated only for sale and manufacture only in North America.
      • 3 Years Ago
      It'd the new RWD Chevy Caprice
      • 3 Years Ago
      The way GM is operating again, maybe it's the Buick version of the Sonic:)

      This piece of crap is the future sedan for poverty, made under the simplified Gamma platform, which will generate the new Chevrolet Agile sedan, since GM have decided that "developing countries" don't deserve "sophisticated" cars like any crap offered for Europe or US like the Aveo / Sonic or the Opel products as the Chevrolets for South America once were or even a decent project with a decent design as the new Sail or the Cruze.

      It's no based on the Montana. The sedan is better, because its platform is the same of Opel Corsa D, launched in 2007 in Europe.

      Montana has platform of Corsa B, launched in 1994. Only design will be shared, unfortnetly, because the last Montana was so better than the new. I'm brazilian and be very dissapointed. Chevrolet is becoming poor... it's so sad =/

        Thanks!

        Everybody's doing emerging markets, so this product makes sense to support "Chevy" going global.
