Alongside the Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept, the Bowtie brand has revealed something called the Cobalt Concept at the 5th Annual International Motor Show in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but it’s not the Cobalt as we Americans know it. Rather, it’s the same mystery vehicle that was photographed back in March.
Judging by the shrunken dimensions and the facial resemblance to the Chevy Agile hatchback, it’s a safe bet that this particular Cobalt rides on the Gamma II platform. The interior also resembles the likeness of the all-new Gamma II-based Aveo/Sonic with its motorcycle-inspired gauge cluster, but the navigation and Rear Seat Entertainment systems are a welcome surprise. Though chances are such features will not see production.
Mechanically the engines will range between 1.3 to 1.8 liter four-pots, among them some capable of running on E85 ethanol while others diesel. Unfortunately a launch date was not included in the press release, which was translated from Spanish.
But out of all names, why the Cobalt?
