Buying a new car can be a bit of a daunting experience for many, but it can also be a lot of fun. Especially when you get to configure your car just the way you want it. For Chevrolet, that often includes ordering special graphics packages. But while you'd expect to find stripes running up the hood and down the flanks of a Camaro, the Bowtie brand's graphics packages are also available for the Cruze econo-sedan, the Volt plug-in hybrid and yes, even the Sonic hatchback.

The options range from a simple racing stripe to a full vinyl wrap, and can – with options like the one pictured above – run as much as $2,860 on the options list, or as little as $208. We've had some fun with the online configurator and you can do the same by following the link, or check out some of the most outlandish examples compiled in our image gallery.

      ALL of them are hideous. The only one that is actually decent is the white Ave....errr... Sonic with the gray and green stripe.

      Until GM completely breaks away from the old Aveo design, I think they are going to have a tough time in the small-car segment. Sure, its not called the Aveo any more, and its clearly a much better car than the one it replaces, but its still got the same Aveo basic design going, just updated a little. GM did the same thing for decades with the old Cavalier... they updated it, and renamed it the Cobalt, but design-wise, it was just a newer Cavalier. Then they kind of did it again with the Cruze. The Cruze is a pretty good car, but it still reminds me too much of the craptacular Cavalier. Ford (and Hyundai, and a few other car makers) on the other hand, have completely broken away from what their small cars used to be with some fresh designs that look pretty damn good and have little relation to the models that they replaced.

          Just because its "all-new" doesn't mean that it still doesn't shares the same/similar design mentality. The Sonic is clearly a much, much better car than its predecessor, but its got the same ideas going on, just updated slightly... its like competing with its predecessor, instead of competing with whats out there now in the marketplace. The 2-box design is just barely updated from the Aveo. Its still got pretty much the same proportions and tiny wheels and nondescript sides. It still has that awkward grill/nose. It LOOKS cheap. That can't be said about the small cars from Ford or Hyundai, nor can they really be said to look like the cars that came before them. (well the Fiesta and Focus look like their Euro predecessors, but the USDM small cars from Ford were terrible before). With the Cruze, I am not saying that its a bad car. I actually kind of like it, but it too still can trace its roots all the way back to the 80s and the craptacular Cavalier. Its an updated, modern Cavalier, but its not the break-from-the-past design that the Focus and Elantra are.

      I suppose the "tribal" design on the white car is meant to match the owner's tramp stamp that she got in 2003.

      Now all you need is a car that doesn't look 5 years outdated coming out of the factory anyways.

      I know I'm going to get some hate with this I actually like the Sonic. It does have too much Aveo in the design, but from the reviews, it seems to be very competitive and MUCH better. I will agree that these graphics are terrible. They kind of remind of of the cars that have advertizements on them. Maybe it will look better in person but not exactly getting my hopes up for that.

      It was bad enough before the stickers.... This car will be a huge failure for GM... They just can't think outside the box..
