The 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt series of compact sedans and coupes (LS, LT, and SS models) have a MSRP ranging from $13,125 to $20,925. The Cobalts are outfitted with four cylinder engines and 148 horsepower with the SS jumping to 173 hp and the SS Supercharged to 205 hp.
Although the Cobalt is available in manual or automatic transmission, the LTZ trim package (which is quite similiar to the look of the SS Supercharged) offers 4-speed automatic only and the SS Supercharged 5-speed manual only. Comprehensive front seat airbag protection for both occupants is a standard features as are supplemental bags in the curtain and side positions.
Cloth buckets are standard on the LS with the LT and SS having “sport” cloth. Leather can be selected on the 2 and 3LT and on the SS. Across the line rear seating is a bench with the traditional 60/40 split configuration.
The LS offers a CD player while all other models have a CD/MP3 player combo. Starting with the 2LT and continuing through the rest of the line XM Satellite radio is standard. All models have an auxiliary audio input jack.
Overall the 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt offers a degree of refinement unusual in a compact with handling excellence and even ride characteristics. The SS, however, breaks that refinement to deliver a pleasing sound that can only be termed “sporty.”
