    Looks better than the current model. GM managed to make it one of the blandest vehicles possible.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    looks pretty good. maybe if you rounded out the headlights, just a tiny bit, it might look better. i like guessing the donor car, and I'm going to say, Lancer Evo.

    Not the highest quality chop, but the concept is great. The Mazda 3 would finally have some competition.

    I like the atomic weight reference. Chevrolet could go a long way with that.

    Very cool chop!

    If Chevy could drop some of these styling cues into the next Cobalt (along with a more fuel efficient powertrain option), they would have a best-in-class hit!

    This stands out compared to the current one and it doesn't look bad in sedan form either.

    I like it. Hate the gold though and that includes the bowtie.

    Indeed. This car looks really good. Nice use of the Beat's headlights/grill.

    Re: atomic weight: 58.933

    Some constructive criticism. . .

    1. The headlights are way too long and sharp.
    2. the cross-bar on the grill needs to be the body color, not black.

    Other than that, I'd be really happy if the next Cobalt looked like that.

    i'd wait for the Cobalt TURBO if that was the car! well yes the points above need to be taken into account, i'd also lower the crossbar a bit and add body color side mirrors that were realistically sized.

    a little slooppy and you need to get rid of the Mitsu underneath more but I am really liking where you are going with.

    Refine it a little and I think you'll be really onto something great.
