In North America, GM has replaced the Chevrolet Cobalt compact with the new Cruze sedan. However in South America, an all-new Chevy Cobalt has been revealed in pre-production form at the Buenos Aires Auto Show in Argentina(June 17-26).

The South American Cobalt will enter production in 2012 and will be offered in ethanol (flex fuel), gasoline and diesel engines. Engines range from a 1.3-liter to a 1.8-liter engine. Both automatic and manual transmissions will also be available.

The concept at the show came equipped with an aero kit offering a front and rear skirt, discreet rear spoiler, with 17-inch alloy wheels in 255/45 R17 tires and a twin exhaust.

The interior will also get two-tone leather seats, chrome trim, a double sunroof as well as an infotainment system equipped LCD screens integrated into the front headrests.

GM is going down the shitter.
Maybe the mexican one. The north american General Motors just repaid its entire debt to the Canadian government recently.

Also that makes no ****ing sense that they would call that a Cobalt when in like, 100 other countries, they've called it the Cruze. That's just insulting to Cobalts.

I think it looks nothing like the Cruze. All they did by the looks was slap a new front and rear end on the old cobalt platform and added new rims. I do however think it looks ugly and wouldn't drive one even if it was free...

It's actually got nothing to do with the Cruze or the Cobalt, more like the Aveo. GM owns the Cobalt name, so they used it for the car. That's about it.

Well look on the bright side, at least we won't have to bare seeing it in the public roads of North America since its a South American model.
