To complement the rakish TRU 140S Concept, Chevrolet rolled out a completely different, yet equally plausible concept car in the CODE 130R. And whereas the TRU 140S is a Cruze-based front-wheel-drive coupe, the CODE 130R is good old-fashioned rear-wheel-drive, just like the car gods intended. But there is an extra ingredient to the formula, as the CODE 130R’s turbocharged 1.4L Ecotec engine is mated to GM’s eAssist mild hybrid system. As a result, the car is said to be good for 150 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque, and 40 miles per gallon on the highway.
In the looks department, the car is a completely fresh take. So much for retro-inspired looks. But we’re not about to slam the gavel on the looks of this concept car just yet, though maybe you would like to. Sound off in the comment section below to give us your feedback.
