Posted in chevrolet on July 27, 2009 by Shun Ty

This 1.6-liter sedan comes in either manual or transmission, but nonetheless exhibits a maximum power for both variants. Its modern and state-of-the-art design offers a free flowing silhouette, courtesy of the famed Pininfarina design house.

The Chevrolet Optra comes with the Bosch 4-sensor, 4-channel ABS system with EBD which gives drivers better control.

The low noise levels of the car complements the Blaupankt audio system which houses the AM/FM cassette player, 5-disc in dash CD changer and 6 speakers which can also be controlled from the steering wheel.

The luxurious features of this mainstream passenger car perfectly suits the tastes and needs of progressive opportunists who aspire to get more out of life. In addition, this ‘silent’ vehicle is pegged at a price that is within reach of the consumers.

With tumbling SUV and large saloon sales and certain oil economies, GM is now aiming to increase its being in even more small auto market. The car maker revealed a trio of newest Chevrolet minicab model autos planned to capture the mind of young town car fanatic around the globe.

The “trio” include:

• Chevrolet Groove : A “funkastalgia”- themed vehicle too tough-looking to be “cute,” the Groove concept is a retro-inspired vehicle with assured fender flickers and a vertical windshield. It looks much longer than it is, thanks to its short hood and long cabin. The front-drive Groove is powered by a small, efficient 1-liter diesel engine. The Groove’s design conveys something but weakness. The outstanding matte Lunar Quartz exterior finish compares with the strategic use of satin silver exterior chrome details. Think this the most realistic concept of the three.

• Chevrolet Trax : The Rage Orange Chevrolet Trax, an urban crossover concept that’s evenly at home on the trails or in traffic, it gets a low-cost all-wheel-drive system and looks the auto parts of a rugged SUV many times its dimension, thanks to a voluminous one-piece bumper and fender system in the front and back, a rear-mounted auxiliary tire and a roof rack. Trax is power-driven by a 1-liter gas engine.

• Chevrolet Beat: The Vertigo Green Chevrolet Beat three-door hatchback concept is doomed to evoke a micro edition of the import tuner cars popularized by movies like the Fast and the Furious. The Beat is certainly the most sporty of the trio. The Beat is a front-wheel-drive, built to be tailored, and motorized by a 1.2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine mated to an automatic transmission. It’s loaded with expertise, including a navigation system and first class stereo. Notionally described as a “tuner” car, the Beat is predestined to be customized much similar to a Scion to an owner’s own personal tastes.
