CHEVROLET COBALT SS COUPE WIDE BODY

23 posts in this topic

Like all Chevy SS vehicles before it, Cobalt SS represents affordable, fuel efficient performance. In its Wide Body configuration, this special Cobalt stretches styling to the corners. Wheel opening flares, rocker extensions, extended fascias and a 64 mm track give Cobalt Coupe Wide Body a ready-to-pounce appearance. Further reinforcing this hunkered-down look is a suspension that is 1 inch lower in the front and 1.3 inches lower in the rear than its production counterpart, as well as 18 x 7-inch Asanti AF123B aluminum wheels shod with 225/40ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.

The front reminds me of the Malibu Maxx Cross Country from last year's SEMA show, maybe it's a sign of things to come. I think the front looks ok (a bit overdone though), the rest is just tacky.

Since this has the same front end as the Cobalt SS 272 concept from last year, I'd bet that's what the 2008 refresh will look like:

Is this a peek at the AWD they are thinking about? Are they showing the car and if they go AWD just add the rear driveline? It has that WRX look to it and with the flairs it could take much wider wheels for traction at each corner.

Version one-point-oh works really good. Version two-point-oh doesn't.

Actually this grill is a little larger than the 272 concept.

Being as we have seen this in quite a few concepts it is probably Chevy's new face.

I thought we was getting rid of the Bowtie bar?................ The headlights look awesome, the foglight area and front half of the fenders looks great too. Grill is god awful.......its too freakin big the Bar is not good looking, the Shape of it is right and has a connection to the 272 concept though the 272 concept had a better porportened gril. I like that the nose has an angle...........but the bottom half of the nose is bad........along with the gaping holes left from the widebody when you have a rear shot of the car and the not rounded fenders with them abruptly squaring off leaving huge gaping pockets.

The... uh... headlights look good and the... um... wheels do too. The grill on last year's looked better and the rest, as so many have said, is just purely disgusting.

Chevy announced that the new corporate Chevy grille has the bar with a smaller opening on top. They need to rethink this. As for the rest of the car, yech.

They should try the new grille a couple more times before actually producing something other than the new Impala's or Tahoe's. It's not a bad idea, but this one looks goofy. This concept is just nasty.
