The Cobalt badge has been resurrected in South America this week - three years after its US-market predecessor was retired in favour of the global Cruze small car.
Revealed at the Buenos Aires Motor Show today, alongside the Colorado Double-Cab Rally, the new Cobalt Sedan Concept offers a glimpse of a new small sedan expected to hit a number of markets around the world.
However, with dimensions that appear to place it somewhere between the new 2012 Barina and the larger Cruze (measurements haven't been revealed), it remains to be seen where the Cobalt will fit into the company's line-up.
The concept shown here is described as a sports variant, wearing skirts all round, a bootlid spoiler, dual exhaust outlets and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the Cobalt concept gets a two-tone leather trim with chrome highlights and a full-roof split sunroof design. Rear passengers also benefit from front headrest-mounted screens.
Power for the Cobalt will come from a range of four-cylinder petrol, diesel and ethanol engines, ranging in size from 1.3 litre to 1.8 litres. Automatic and manual transmissions will be offered.
With Holden's light and small line-ups taken care of by the upcoming Barina hatch and sedan, and the Cruze hatch and sedan, don't expect to see the Cobalt on Australian roads.
