Pros

Pretty much everything about the car is good.  The engine comes with more standard horse power than the SS which has a 2.0L engine.  Granted the SS has more standard horse power given the fact that it has a turbo.  Throwing a turbo on the 2.4L engine the Cobalt Sport has would make it significantly faster than the SS.

Cons

Doesn't come with a turbo.

Affordable And Easy To Drive — I recently spent a week with the Cobalt and was impressed with its quick acceleration and ease of handling. It performed well on rougher roads and highways alike, and received better than average gas mileage. It does however, feel a little low to the ground and the passenger side seating position creates a significant blind spot for the driver.

Cant Wait For My Next One — It is not the car for me. I am way to tall. It might be the car for some people. The radio does get pretty roudy that is about it. Nothing else to say about the chevy cobalt four door.
