The 2012 Chevy Sonic is a great little car, but the design of the multi-function center console makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. As a result, too many Sonic owners have been forced to endure subpar factory sound for too long. This package makes it possible to enjoy the great sound of an aftermarket receiver while retaining the factory console's fit, finish, and functionality.

The kit comes with a dash kit, a wiring harness, and even an antenna adapter. It's everything you need to install an aftermarket DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in your Sonic's dash panel without losing the factory steering wheel audio controls, heating/air controls, or safety warning chimes. You'll also retain OnStar and your factory Bluetooth. Basically, your Sonic's dash console will do everything it does now, and you'll finally enjoy your music the way you've always wanted to.

Available in Jet Black or Dark Argent (Gray), the durable ABS plastic dash adapter matches the color, texture, and contours of your Sonic's dash.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this package is compatible with your vehicle. Due to the sub-dash configuration, there is a mounting depth difference between DIN and double-DIN receivers.

Steering wheel audio controls: see Details for a list of compatible car stereos.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

2012 Chevrolet Sonic
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was an easy install. The color isnt as dark as I thought though, it's kind of like a matte black. One of the trims also broke easily but you can buy a pack of different sizes for like $5 that will match your preference. Not a bad product though.

Pros: Easy install.

Cons: Flimsy trim. Not as dark as I thought.
