Overhead View

What's Hot
Supercharged SS model
Clever, high-quality interior design
Robust 145-horsepower base engine
What's Not
Shallow cupholders
Stingy rear legroom
Bland exterior styling

What's New
The Cobalt is all new for 2005, but upgrades already are on the way. Model year 2006 brings an available larger, more powerful 2.4-liter Ecotec inline-four rated at 170 horsepower.

Key Options
The LS and, in particular, the LT, come well equipped. But because package choices are limited and most options are priced on an a la carte basis, expect to pay a premium to upgrade. Would-be street-racers should consider the SS Performance Package, which bundles the Quaife LSD and Recaro seats.

Others to Consider
Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla
