The Chevrolet Cobalt SS is a line of three sports compact versions of the well known Chevrolet Cobalt manufactured by General Motors using the Delta platform. The car was released in late 2004 as a 2005 model equipped with a 2.0 liters engine able to produce 205 horsepower along with the F35 manual transmission and was designed to replace the Chevrolet Cavalier. The Cobalt SS models included the SS supercharged, the SS turbocharged and the SS naturally-aspired.
The 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt is available on the market in the compact sedan and the coupe body styles, and each one of these can come in the XFE, LS, LT or SS trim level. But the most interesting is the Chevrolet Cobalt SS model. This 2009 Chevrolet impresses with its front fascia with incorporated air dam and projector-beam fog lights. The rocker extensions are unique, being associated with the SS version while the rear deck-lid spoiler is similar to all the models. The Cobalt SS has a rounded nose which rolls back into the low rear and is followed by the radically raked windshield. The sharply wheel arches ride low over the 18-inch tires mounted on five-double-spoke alloy wheels made of titanium.
The interior of this 2009 Chevrolet SS is simple and the designers used quality materials giving it class and style. The chrome is visible everywhere including the knobs and the instruments. As a result, the interior is lit while the instrumental panel is large, placed handy and easy to read because of the graphics used. The 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt SS has sports seats marked with the SS-logo, covered in suede UltraLux inserts. The interior also features a gauge cluster, an A-pillar-mounted turbo boost gauge, power windows, Bluetooth, the Pioneer seven-speaker sound system with AM/FM/CD, the XM Satellite radio, heating, ventilation and a defroster system, OnStar, an iPod and an USB.
Under the hood, this Chevrolet SS hides a 2.0 liter DOHC, direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This engine is available for both the coupe and the sedan versions and it is able to produce 260 horsepower at 5300 rpm. The Cobalt SS engine is placed transversally and is coupled with a GM4T45 five speed automatic transmission with overdrive. The 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt SS goes from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds while the top speed reaches 150 mph. It’s not as fast as a Corvette, but it’s quick enough. General Motors was particularly interested in the Cobalt’s handling which was improved by using stabilizer bars and a limited slip differential. In addition, the company equipped this Chevrolet SS with Brembo brakes mounted on the front and with a traction control system which can be turned off if not necessary.
When it comes to fuel economy, we can state that the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt SS has decent EPA rates, considering that this Chevrolet SS consumes 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on highway. Not bad! Is it? The safety measures are all respected by the 2009 Cobalt SS including ABS, traction control, dual-stage dual front-side airbags and the antiskid system.
