Set to debut at the SEMA Show alongside the Sonic RS hatchback, Chevrolet has confirmed a new Dusk package for the Sonic Sedan will head to showrooms.

The Dusk package for the Sonic adds numerous visual goodies like ground effects, a rear spoiler and large, 18-inch aluminum wheels with a Pearl Nickel finish. The whole car is finished in the Ashen Grey paint-job, and features matte features on the upper and lower grilles, door handle inserts and rear license plate trim. Stainless steel lower window moldings add another upscale accent to the body.

“With a year under our belt, we’ve learned our Sonic sedan buyers are looking at exterior styling as a key purchase driver,” said Cristi Landy, marketing director of Chevrolet small cars. “While the RS hatchback is our sporty interpretation of Sonic, Dusk is a sophisticated, well contented option – both unique to this segment. It’s all about choices and personalization.”

The Sonic Dusk Sedan also gets an upgraded interior, with Jet Black leather-trimmed seats with suede accents and Mojave tan inserts.

The instrument panel and doors are also accented with Mojave tan. The Sonic Dusk is also equipped with Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system.

The Dusk package has also been applied to the Chevrolet Camaro, which similar to the Sonic, featured no significant performance upgrades, and centered around making the Camaro a stand-out car on the road.

“Just like we’ve done with Corvettes and Camaros, we’re taking another one of our core products and adapting it to our customers’ lifestyles,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “The reaction to the Sonic Dusk concept last year was overwhelmingly positive and proved customers are interested in a more-refined subcompact. We’re moving quickly to bring Sonic Dusk to Chevrolet showrooms.”
