Chevrolet Cobalt

The 2005 automotive model year brought about the introduction of the Chevrolet Cobalt, a compact car that effectively replaced the Cavalier. Manufactured by General Motors in its Lordstown Ohio plant, this fuel efficient compact car is indeed still made in America. Unlike the Aveo - a fuel efficient sub-compact car manufactured overseas for exportation to the United States.

A relatively simple yet eye catching design with understated curves and a low, low sticker price, the Cobalt was immediately widely appreciated by those who had been seeking an inexpensive small car from Chevrolet that could compete with the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. The vehicle was equipped with premium features such as heated leather seats and the OnStar navigation system, making the Cobalt very appealing to those who wanted more of a premium model compact car than the sub-compact Aveo. The car was originally offered as either a sporty two door coupe or a four door sedan and has basically remained cosmetically unchanged from the time of its introduction.

The 2008 Cobalt LS and LT models are equipped with a 2.2 liter DOHC Ecotec engine that provides more horsepower than comparable cars offered by Toyota and Honda. The 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt Sport features a high output 2.4 liter Ecotec engine in addition to 17 inch polished aluminum wheels, rear spoiler, body color rocker moldings, fog lamps, leather wrapped steering wheel and a seven speaker Pioneer sound system.

The low sticker price of this model might enable you to afford a few of the many options and accessories that Chevrolet has available for the Cobalt like a cat back exhaust system with polished stainless steel exhaust tip or shifter trim kit.

Although fuel efficiency is the major appeal of the Chevrolet Cobalt, it is an aesthetically pleasing vehicle with more than adequate safety and security features. In addition to the OnStar navigation system, the 2008 rendering also includes airbags, remote keyless entry and an electronic stability control system.

Chevrolet Cobalt Reviews by Year

2010 Chevrolet Cobalt
The 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt provides prospective purchasers with an excellent option for affordable, dependable transportation. Especially considering that the Cobalt is a small vehicle, it runs quietly and handles crisply. It performs smoothly and strong and is built upon the rigid GM Delta platform. All things considered, it fares quite well when matched against the Ford Focus, the Honda Civic, and the Toyota Corolla with their long-enduring domination periods of the compact automobile market. The Hyundai Elantra and Suzuki X4 are also splashing around in the same pool.

The 2010 Cobalt by Chevrolet is available in seven separate trims: Base/LS/LT 2-door coupes, Base/LS/LT 4-door sedans and the considerably higher-powered SS Turbocharged 2-door coupe. All except the SS feature a 2.2L Ecotec 155hp 150 lb-ft I4 engine that yields 25/26 mpg city/highway. Variable valve timing technology has enhanced its performance since last year's version by more than 5%. LS trims with the 5-speed manual gearbox deliver 37 mpg on the highways. more
