Chevrolet Cobalt 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Chevrolet Cobalt 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Cobalt zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Cobalt 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.

Chevrolet offers buyers a wide range of options when it comes to sedans and coupes. We have base models that provide economy and sporty SS variants for performance enthusiasts. The SS is the Chevrolet athlete and is available as a coupe. All models now come with the fuel-efficient engine produced last year for the XFE. The interior remains basic with conservative styling. 

The 2010 Cobalt comes in 4 trims: the Base, the LS, the LT, and the SS. The first three are powered by a 2.2-liter, 4-cylinder engine that generates up to 155 hp. The base isn’t sporty at all. It, however, behaves well for a daily commuter. The aspirated 2.2-liter falls short in matters power but tries to provide good handling, except around corners.

There are two engines available for the Cobalt. Both are fuel efficient and come with 4 cylinders. The LS and LT trims feature a 2.2 with changeable valve timing. It produces 155 hp. The SS comes with an intercooler, turbocharged, 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine. It churns 260 hp.

The 155 hp LS and LT do not offer much when it comes to performance. According to Kelley Blue Book, the exhausts are somewhat loud and sound unrefined under acceleration. The SS, nevertheless, offers exemplary performance. The turbocharged 2.2 is similar to the one found in the Pontiac Solstice GXP. It takes just 5.7 seconds to hit the 60 mph mark. Other features include stability control, sports body kit, side airbags, and Brembo front brakes. Optional sports pedals and a slip front differential are also available.

Buyers have two transmissions to choose from for the LS and LT models: a 4-speed automatic and a 5-speed manual. The SS comes exclusively with a manual transmission. The 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt has an EPA estimate of 25 mpg in cities and 37 mpg on highways. At 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, the SS’ fuel economy is also desirable. Reviewers have, however, cited a lack of feedback from the electric power steering system.

The 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt comes as either a 4-door sedan or 2-door coupe for the LS, LT, and high-performance SS models. The last one is the most stylish in the lineup. It features slightly lowered riding height, vivid colors, a unique rear and front fascia, increased track, a standard rear wing, and unique rocker molding. There’s a Sport Appearance Package ($795) that adds fog lights, a rear spoiler, chrome exhaust tip, body cladding, and polished alloy wheels. The LS and LT trims feature generic and character-free exterior styling.

Designers at General Motors went for a one-size-fits-all look for the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt. The styling isn’t all that impressive once you’re behind the wheel. It’s functional, but barely cutting-edge. Some of the gauges are too small and too far from the driver’s seat. The basic character, however, has been described as attractive by Kelley Blue Book. All in all, the Chevrolet Cobalt is lackluster that falls behind when compared to competing models.
