Boosting up to the 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LS Sedan adds power windows, locks, and mirrors, wheel-mounted cruise control, remote entry, and 15-inch alloy wheels (steel wheels on the Base sedan). The engine is the same -- a 145-hp, 2.2-liter DOHC I4 that delivers 155 lb-ft of torque and is matched with a 5-speed manual transmission. A 4-speed auto tran is also available. ABS brakes, automatic headlights, daytime running lights, and dual front airbags help earn four-star crash ratings, and you can add side curtain airbags for both rows, foglights, traction control, and larger 16-inch wheels.
Aside from the added features you get with the 2005 Cobalt LS Sedan, the front-wheel drive economy compact car also offers intermittent wipers, a tilt steering wheel, tachometer, CD player, air conditioning, rear defrost, and 60/40 split-folding rear seats. The large trunk fits 14 cubic feet of storage and comes standard with a cargo net. There are a lot more options offered on the LS, including a sunroof, an MP3 compatible audio system with wheel-mounted audio controls, leather upholstery and trim, heated front seats, OnStar, satellite radio, and a rear spoiler. Downsides appear to be uncomfortable seats, a small backseat, and tiny trunk opening. There are also reports of stalling. But drivers say the ride is fun, with great handling and superior fuel economy.
