    I think it could be considered the nicest-looking small hatchback of the 21st century. But out of *all* cars? No way!

    Meh. This car is really expensive from what I understand. About 30000 Canadian dollars.

    The Mk4 GTI is indeed a great little car. It's more purist-oriented that much of what's out there. I don't see the logic in comparing it to a stlyized Alfa. I guess if "nicest looking" means beautiful, fine. I like alot of what Alfa's doing, and the small hatch (159-series, I think) is gorgeous. But the VW gets my votes for best-done minimalism.

    GM needs a car just like the GTI. Small, sporty, quick, fuel-efficient, great interior materials ... an all-around, everyday driver's car. The Cobalt SS SC comes about as close as GM's come in a long, long time. Even if price is no object, there are only a few other GM cars, each at $30K or more, that are enthusiast-oriented. Precisely why I have a GTO and a GTI for my daily duties. And much as I don't prefer to buy imports, I'll probably stick with the VW or something similar until GM can get it done. Cobalt SS is too "boy racer" for me. I might consider a 4-door Cobalt SS with no wing if it was offered with the SC. But the know-it-alls at GM, never content to do more than 85% of the job, chose not to offer it. What in the heck would it cost to offer that engine in the 4-door? Do they not notice that many VW Jettas have been purchased with the turbo mill?

    Aura was another option I thought about, but now no manual tranny option. It's truly as if GM's forgotten about the enthusiast, even though the marginal cost of offering some goodies is small ... and would not only payoff, but help bolster GM's brand credibility, too.

    If the 2008 "Saturn Astra" can't effectively take on a 1998 Mark4 GTI, then GM may as well just hang it up, do a few Camry clones and some pickups and succumb to benchwarmer status in the global automotive order.

    Not to me. I think the Cobalt SS Supercharged looks way better than the VW.

    Nicest looking compared to what? I think it's pretty ugly.
