Oshawa, Ontario – Chevrolet has announced pricing for the new turbocharged Cobalt SS, which will arrive in dealers next month starting at $24,995. The Cobalt SS uses a 260-horsepower turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-litre Ecotec engine, mated exclusively to a five-speed manual transmission.

The Cobalt SS will deliver an estimated 6.6 L/100 km in highway driving, which Chevrolet said is “best among top competitors”. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in approximately 5.7 seconds.

Standard features include air conditioning, side-impact airbags, Pioneer premium sound system, keyless entry, StabiliTrak electronic stability control, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and OnStar. Specific to the SS in the Cobalt line-up are such features as new diamond-mesh front upper and lower grilles, bright exhaust tip, SS-embroidered sport seats with Ultralux suede-like inserts, SS-specific gauge cluster and A-pillar-mounted turbo boost gauge.

Available options will include a sunroof, high-wing rear spoiler and limited-slip differential.
