A similar prototype has been shot in various guises, but never from all pertinent angles while uncovered--in full Chevrolet trim. The new 2011 Chevrolet Cobalt will utilize GM's new global compact vehicle architecture, and will be shared globally--reportedly, it will be sold abroad in similar form as the Chevrolet Nubira and and the Daewoo Lacetti. The platform is also pegged to underpin the next-generation Saturn Astra and even the Chevrolet Volt.
These latest shots give us a great taste of the further evolution of Chevrolet's two-tiered grille treatment and the new Cobalt's chunky profile. The first-ever look at the 2011 Chevrolet Cobalt's largely undisguised tail treatment also reminds us of the recently revealed Opel Insignia, with its BMW-inspired raised trunk line and side sculpting.
The 2011 Chevrolet Cobalt is expected to appear in U.S. showrooms in 2010. Stay tuned for more details.--KGP Photography
