This brand has united under its aegis the vast group of automobiles for either purpose. Everything that can be desired by a family, a businessman, a farmer or a reckless amateur of higher speeds and fast travels is available in abundance of options. The special interest arouses regarding the e-vehicles. In the current gamut two models are presented with battery-powered propulsion: the Chevrolet Spark EV 1 LT /2 LT and the Chevrolet Volt also available in two versions – LT and Premium. The first vehicle can be considered as a smart city car and it is equipped with almost every useful feature you would find on its stablemates from more expensive segment (such as the BMW i3), including regenerative braking system, exceptional comfort and 10 airbags to secure the driver and passengers, as well the most compact dimensions possible. The 140 hp zero emissions motor with liquid thermal conditioning provides you with 119 MPG combined mileage. The MSRP for the 2016 model
starts at 18 500 US $. The marque keeps on producing and developing historical models which form a backbone of Chevrolet – the Tahoe and the Suburban which dates back to 1935. Cars offered at lower prices form a subcompact level comprising the Chevrolet Trax (introduced in 2012) and the Sonic, both based on GM’s Gamma platform.
The Volt represents a mid-size hybrid sedan which can be considered environment friendly as well. It embraces the drivetrain consisting of electric motor delivering 149 hp and 294 lb-ft of torque and range extender propulsion system – a 1.5 L DOHC inline-4 engine. With the estimated battery range of 53 miles and fuel tank capacity of 8.9 gallons the combined range of the car is about 420 miles. The Volt possesses a truly captivating image both in terms of exterior and interior – smooth and sharper line which flow in and out forming an arrow-like slightly aggressive outline. One of Chevrolet’s traditional performance guys – the 2015 Camaro SS has something magnetic. The latest version of the Camaro – the 2016, revitalizes the lineup by adding fresh stylization and engineering. From technical point of view the main feature is the 4 cylinder in-line gasoline engine, with the output of 275 hp and 2.0 liter displacement. It must have positive effect on car’s weight and consequently its controls not to mention the price. Certainly, this straight 4 motor can’t compete with the V8 6.2 L capable of 376 hp at 6000 rpm which is also available on new Camaro. The suspension overall pattern is intact and includes front MacPherson struts and multilink rear suspension.
The trunk of the vehicle has less volume and the body’s basic dimensions have been decreased: 1.60 in. truncated wheelbase, 2.30 in. shorter in length and 1.60 in. less in height. Nonetheless, the inner space – front head-, leg- and shoulder rooms, was expanded by few extra inches. In terms of its outlines the new coupe undeniably takes a whole lot of traits after its predecessor. However its muscles have grown up and become more solid and voluminous. The indentations on doors look more profound and rebuilt front bumper has new angular geometry and vertically-positioned lights. The classic grille is narrower and front lights appear more challenging and aggressive with the new “eyelids”. All of these only solidify the impression of robustness.
The 6th generation Camaro comes up with the reinvented interior. The instrument panel and some inconveniently installed gauges behind the shifter have been repositioned and taken its place in front of the driver. New concave front panel with infotainment screen mounted inside of trapezoidal frame with lighted edges render the whole dashboard an appearance of a fiction spaceship cockpit.
