The second generation Aveo debuted in January 2011. Chevrolet markets the new Aveo under the Chevrolet Sonic nameplate in the U.S., Canadian, Mexican, Colombian, Argentinian, Brazilian (and replaces the Chevrolet Astra however the Chevrolet Zafira continued until the following year), Chilean, Japanese, Israeli, Middle East, South African and ASEAN markets.The North American-spec Sonic is available as a 4-door sedan or five-door hatchback. On August 2, 2011, the Chevrolet Sonic had entered production at Orion Assembly, with the first cars arriving at dealerships in October. Some model years of Chevrolet Sonic have keyless entry remote key fobs that are onboard programmable, which means a person can program the keyless entry remote key fob with no special equipment other than the keyless entry remote key fob programming instructions. While other model years are not on-board programmable and require special equipment in order to program the keyless entry remote key fob.
