The Cobalt should be a vastly better car then the Cav--and changing the name, since Cav had a lousy rep is a good idea.

Base engine 2.2L 145hp est
2.4L opt w/170hp est

and since the ION Redline is getting the S/C 2.0 (205hp) look for it a perforance Cobalt. I think the autos will be 5speeds too---which is what Mazda should have.

I don't think they'll do that well.

Toyotas and Hondas still have their reputations going for them, regardless of the recalls that "nobody hears about" ... hehehe

The Cobalt does resemble a Civic from some angles.

I think that there will be buyers. Make the car affordable enough and reliable enough, and good looking (subjective) and the masses will come.

But from a performance point, with a bigger motor, straight line acceleration should be good. We'll have to wait and see on the handling.
