Alongside its new midsize Colorado pickup, Chevrolet will also be unveiling a pair of new Sonic variants at this week’s LA Auto Show.

The first will be the Chevy Sonic Dusk, a car that was shown off as a concept at the 2012 SEMA Show (concept seen above). Dusk-trimmed cars get a host of cosmetic add-ons like ground effects, a rear spoiler and large, 18-inch aluminum wheels with a Pearl Nickel finish. The whole car is finished with an Ashen Grey paint job and features matte accents on the upper and lower grilles, door handle inserts and rear license plate trim.

Inside, the Sonic Dusk is fitted with Jet Black leather-trimmed seats with suede accents and Mojave tan inserts.

The second Sonic variant set for debut is the RS Sedan, a trim package that buyers can already purchase on the Sonic hatchback. In its hatchback form, RS car’s get a MacPherson strut front suspension, coil springs, a stabilizer bar, and semi-independent rear suspension with gas-charged shocks. Power comes from a turbocharged 1.4-liter motor that makes 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque.
