We know that Ford is working on a smaller SUV based on the Fiesta, but now we can also show you that GM is planning a direct rival. Based on a slightly stretcher platform from the new Sonic, GM is developing a smaller brother to the Captiva and here are the very first photos of it.
This compact Sonic SUV will probably come in both front- and four-wheel drive versions and will be powered by a set of diesel and petrol engines.
The new compact SUV is designed and engineered by GMs Korean R&D centre, the same division that was responsible for the Cruze and Beat.
Expect to see Chevrolet Sonic/Aveo SUV in its full glory in 2012.
