Chevrolet introduced two concept coupes at the 2012 North American
International Auto Show aimed at inspiring next-generation buyers to take
the wheel and suggest ideas for a car they can co-create. The two new
concepts are the Code 130R and the Tru 140S.
► 2013 Dodge Dart
The 2013 Dodge Dart redefines performance with Alfa Romeo DNA,
fuel-efficient powertrains and Dodge's passion for performance. The all-new
Dodge Dart is a thoroughly modern vehicle that's fuel-efficient,
beautifully designed and crafted, agile and fun-to-drive.
Loaded with innovative technology, class-leading safety features and clever
functionality, the 2013 Dodge Dart sets a new standard in the compact car
segment by offering unmatched personalization, roominess, style,
functionality and fun-to-drive dynamics.
The 2013 Dodge Dart will be available in five trim levels: SE, SXT, Rallye,
Limited and R/T. It will be built in the United States at Chrysler Group's
Belvidere Assembly Plant in Belvidere, Ill. Production of the 2013 Dodge
Dart will begin in the second quarter of 2012.
The name "E-Bugster" is a combination of "E" for electric, "Bug," the
American nickname for the Beetle, and "speedster," which typically
describes an open-top two-seater. Although the E-Bugster concept is clearly
not a convertible, it sports the typical speedster profile of shallow
windows and a low, dramatic roofline.
In addition to being a study in pure-electric mobility, the E-Bugster is
also a dynamic study in Beetle design. Up front, the E-Bugster's flat and
wide windshield is distinctive. The E-Bugster utilizes LED Daytime Running
Lights, just like the production Beetle, except that here they form a
distinctive graphic on either side of the lower air intake in the front
bumper. This LED graphic is mirrored by reflectors in the rear bumper. Ever
since the e-up! concept car was presented in Europe, these unique DRLs have
become a signature element on Volkswagen electric vehicle studies.
From the side, the E-Bugster's low, flat roof serves to frame the rest of
the vehicle's distinctive features. Between its flared fenders and 20-inch
wheels, there's a distinctive Beetle "V" that runs along the side of the
vehicle. Above its side sill, a decal with the "E-Bugster" signature can be
seen. Just above this point, the chrome has been lengthened from the lower
window border towards the rear of the car. The top of the E-Bugster extends
in a flat arch over this chrome line and borders the vehicle's side
windows. The height between the chrome lower edge of these windows and the
uppermost roof line is tight, like a chopped-down speedster. Overall, the
Bugster is nearly three inches lower than a Beetle.

Chevy Code 130R and Tru 140S Concept Sports Cars at LA Auto Show
I am in love with Chevrolet's two sporty compact concepts the
rear-wheel-drive Code 130R and the front-wheel-drive Tru 140S I saw at the
2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. Rumor has it that both cars might be produces
and aimed at the youth market (and those of us with youthful hearts) that
would be in the low 20s range with the ability to easily personalize them
and tech ready. They were designed at GM's Advanced Design studio in Los
The Tru 140S is a four-passenger hatchback that shares its platform with
the Chevy Cruze and Volt. It also gets the 150-hp Ecotec 1.4, fitted with
stop-start technology and other fuel-saving systems, and is projected to
deliver 40 mpg on the highway.
The Code 130R is a four-passenger hybrid coupe, featuring a turbocharged Ecotec 1.4-liter four-cylinder
direct-injection gasoline engine coupled with General Motors' eAssist
hybrid technology. The engine makes 150 horsepower and 148
pound-feet of torque. Chevy says the driveline can be equipped with either
a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, and is projected to
return 40 miles per gallon in highway driving.
The difference between the two cars is that the Tru 140S is more
contemporary and has performance chrome wheels shod with P245/35R21 tires
and the Code 130R is designed with "heritage" styling cues with P245/40R20

2012 Chevrolet Sonic Review and 0-60 MPH Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Chevrolet has completely redesigned and
even renamed the Chevy Aveo. The small Chevrolet economy car is now the
brand new Chevy Sonic. The old Aveo was really a rebadged Korean that is
now a bad memory in the minds of many car reviewers. So of course the
obvious question is has General Motors come out of the corner swinging with
a brand new Chevrolet Sonic that can take on the likes of the very popular
Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta, and of course the very similar KIA Rio. Check out
this 0 to 60 MPH review of the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic to find out.
