Chevrolet introduced the Aveo RS concept at the 2010 North American International Auto Show and a new report is indicating the model is headed for production.

GM Inside News says the car will closely resemble the concept and feature an aggressive body kit, a revised suspension and beefier brakes. Furthermore, power will likely be provided by a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 138 hp (103 kW / 140 PS) and 148 lb-ft (200 Nm) of torque.

If everything goes according to plan, the Sonic RS could be launched late next year as a 2013 model.

In related news, Chevrolet recently announced the 2012 Sonic will be priced from $14,495 in the United States.
