New Car Overview of the 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Compact Sedan and Coupe
Description: Compact Sedan and Coupe
Options & Features
New compact-class cars from Chevrolet shape up as a four-door sedan, or snazzy two-door coupe. Cobalt applies bold styling to the exterior package and a five-seat passenger compartment laced with premium features.
Three, 4-cylinder EcoTec engines work with Cobalt. Standard is a 140-hp, 2.2-liter plant for base, LS and LT trims, with a new 2.4-liter engine at 170-hp for the SS coupe and sedan due at mid-year. However, a new 2.0-liter 4-cylindar with a blower added in Cobalt SS Supercharged coupe knocks out 205-hp.
The sedan looks stylish in smooth but tall format, and the coupe mimics that form in front yet shows a swooping tail marked by Chevy's signature round tail lamps. Standards for the cabin are air conditioning and an audio kit with CD player, with options extending to heated leather seats, a sunroof, OnStar telecommunications and XM satellite radio service.
