I wish that sedan came out 18 months ago when we bought my wife her car.

Her car is still fun to drive, but a Turbo would of been awesome. There is a kit that I can get to Turbo her car, but I don't want to void the warranty.

looks pretty much the same, but i really dont pay attemtion to colbalts. but imo it does not even come close to compete with the mazdaspeed3.

This is pretty neat!! Launch Control, huh? That'd be a nice option for the Camaro.... who doesn't like a nice launch?

I can't say I'm in the market....cause I'm not - but it definitely makes the Cobalt look like a great Car...which it is!
As for the Mazdaspeed comment....The Cobalt is lighter with ~about the same hp/torque numbers as the Mazda. MS3 has 20more lb/ft. That alone puts the Mazda down.
And we all know how the last competition went between close competitors. coughG8vsChargercough j/k, I'm just kidding....

Thanks for thinkin' of us temporary Cobalt folks, Silverado! ...After all, the Camaro IS coming!

Your right, they do look the same. It will be interesting to see the head to head.

Very nice. I can't wait to see the next gen. The Cobalt is nice, but it is starting to lag a bit behind the competition. Sure the performance is top notch now, but the interior certainly is a liability. I hear promising things about the next gen delta platform, so I'm keeping my hopes up. Look around and see how many people here drive Cobalts. There are a ton of us. The Cobalt and Aveo are vital for getting people into the brand.

The Cobalt was vital in keeping me in the brand. My wife wanted an economical car and thankfully she liked the car I picked her.

Not a high quality video, but gives a good example as to the performance of the new Cobalt SS.

I almost bought a Cobalt instead of the Mazda 3. Basically we found out we were having a baby. And it made our decision real easy.

I actually think this Cobalt SS is a good idea, since the current SRT-4 is such an ugly pile of crap...haha.

Thats pretty awesome.
For $24,000, thats a lot of bang for the buck.
And it broke the Ring record time for front wheel drive compact cars.
