Hate this phrase.....personal luxury 4-door coupe.
Id rather see it come back as a convertible colonade station wagon......
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A 4 DOOR COUPE, a coupe has 2 doors.
How about a targa top sedan delivery fastback?
Though, there is room for a Monte Carlo, or MC like car in the Chevrolet line up, I hope that Chevy is not dumb enough to think that the entire coupe market will be served by the Camaro, thats like having a bathing suit store that only sells speedos, yeah it might work for some people, but not for everyone.
I like the Camaro, but its really a 2+2, the rear seat would be a pain for anything other than a quick trip, but thats how ponycars have always been. Chevrolet should have, at least, a Cruze coupe to replace the popular Cobalt coupe, and battle agains the Civic coupe and others, and a either a Malibu coupe or a Monte Carlo based of the Ep 2 platform with a base 4 and an optional V6, there is a market out there for a $20-30K 5 seat FWD coupe.
I also think that Chevy should at least think about a semi sporty 3 door hatch based on the Cruze as a Scion TC fighter, a Camaro for the freshmen if you will.
Honestly, it might be time for the Monte Carlo nameplate to stay dead, I dont really see re-launching the nameplate, especially now, with limited marketing dollars and a crowded market,I think the better idea would be an extension of the Malibu line to include a sportier bodies coupe, ala Altima and Accord,(I would also like to see the next gen Malibu have a Maxx version again).
