2010 Chevrolet Cobalt

The 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt remains unchanged from last year, except for a few swaps of standard and optional feature content, which sadly means there are no changes to the carís styling. Last year an optional Sport Appearance Package was added; however, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that Chevrolet needs to make the base models look more attractive.

ConsumerGuide notes that the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt "comes as a 2-door coupe or a 4-door sedan in LS, LT, and high-performance SS trims," and the latter is only offered as a coupe for the latest model year.

The Chevrolet Cobalt SS is definitely the most stylish of the bunch, and The Auto Channel says it is "dressed up with unique front and rear fascias, slightly lowered ride height and increased track, special rocker molding, standard rear wing...and some great, vivid colors." The same canít be said for the LS and LT trims, though, which Car and Driver describes as featuring "generic, character-free...exterior design" that was "already a step behind the competition when the car launched in 2005." Thankfully, buyers can get the better looks of the Chevrolet Cobalt SS on the more mundane models thanks to a Sport Appearance Package added last year. It includes the "fog lights, body cladding, rear spoiler, chrome exhaust tip...[and] polished alloy wheels" from the SS for just $795, according to ConsumerGuide.

For the interior of the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, GMís designers go for a one-size-fits-all look. Once you are behind the steering wheel, the styling story is the same for all Chevrolet Cobaltsóand itís not good. While functional, the interiorís design is certainly not cutting edge. ConsumerGuide reviewers appreciate the "neat, logical dashboard," although some of "the gauges [are] a tad small and recessed too far into the cluster for easy reading." Kelley Blue Book finds that "the interiors, crafted to offer five-passenger seating, are attractive, if rather basic." Car and Driver, on the other hand, deems it "cheap-looking.Ē Edmunds is a bit more borderline, asserting that the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt has "a modern feel," but when "compared to the interiors of the Honda Civic or Saturn Astra the Cobalt's design seems rather bland."

Conclusion
The 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt looks very dated against the competition, both inside and out.
