Expert Quotes:

“The LS trim level is nearly identical to the base XFE, but adds air-conditioning”

XM Satellite Radio is now standard on all models

Cobalt offers a number of nice optional features
Kelley Blue Book

The 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt remains unchanged from last year, except for a few swaps of standard and optional feature content.

Base models of the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt don't come with much. Air conditioning is optional, as are cruise control and most power accessories. LT models add much more, including keyless entry, upgraded audio, alloy wheels, and upgraded front seats.

Standard features on the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt can vary significantly across the trim levels, but ConsumerGuide says that buyers can expect to find one year of OnStar service, "air conditioning...AM/FM/CD/MP3 player, digital-media player connection, [and] satellite radio" on every Cobalt. A new USB port for iPod connectivity added last year is a welcome feature for music lovers. According to Edmunds, the base XFE (extra fuel economy) model includes 15-inch steel wheels, OnStar, a tilt steering wheel, a 60/40-split rear seat with a trunk pass-through, a trip computer, a four-speaker stereo with CD/MP3 player, satellite radio, and an auxiliary audio jack. Edmunds also points out that the XFE trim is available on most LS and LT models, but these need to be specified with the 15-inch wheels and manual transmission.

Upgrade to the LT trim level and you get a "keyless entry system, cruise control and power windows and mirrors," reports Kelley Blue Book. ConsumerGuide, meanwhile, reports that the top-of-the-line Chevrolet Cobalt SS gets a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, cruise control, Pioneer sound system, [and] wireless cell phone link."

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show there isn't much to report about stand-alone features for the Chevrolet Cobalt. But for 2010, the Sports Appearance Package, previously known as the Performance Appearance Package, is also available on the LT coupe. The package includes a rear spoiler, 17-inch aluminum wheels, steering wheel controls, Bluetooth connectivity, and a stainless-steel exhaust with chrome tips, fog lamps, white-face gauges, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
