YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 2dr Coupe turbocharged 260hp 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
The fuel economy is very good considering the performance available. I typically get better than 25MPG with a fair bit of city driving and fairly heavy throttle. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
2009 4dr Sedan turbocharged 260hp 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
In mixed driving I get 25 - 26 MPG, even with 75 mph stints and popping in and out of traffic. In pure highway, gets 28+ at 70+ see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
2008 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 2.2L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Better than most North American cars. Lower carbon footprint. Cheaper to run. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
2007 2dr Coupe 148-horsepower 2.2L I4
5-speed manual FWD
While not as impressive as some of its competitors, the Cobalt is still good for low to mid 30s if driven properly. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
2007 2dr Coupe 173-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I like that the 2.4L engine is able to put out significantly more power than the 2.2L and keep the same economy. The SS 2.4L is pretty quick and fun to drive and I still get 28 mpg on average just gunning around town with a lead foot and about 20% high see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
