The Cobalt is the newest compact Chevrolet, and it is not merely a re-skinned Cavalier. It's a completely new car, built on GM's worldwide "Delta" chassis architecture. There are six models in the Cobalt lineup, base and LS versions of both body styles, a premium-appointed LT sedan, and the SS coupe. Other than being a Chevrolet and having four wheels, the Cobalt has little in common with the phased-out Cavalier.
None of the Cobalt varieties illustrate this better than the SS Supercharged coupe, a fitting addition to Chevy's "Super Sport" high-performance line. The Cobalt SS is no pretender, with flashy exterior styling hiding mundane mechanical bits offering low levels of performance. It's the real deal, with 205 supercharged horsepower under the hood, a finely-tuned suspension, and a degree of refinement not expected from an American entry in the sport-compact class.
