GM: New subcompact for the U.S.; not the Beat

Chevy Groove concept

A few posts down you'll see how General Motors' Bob Lutz said we won't be getting the production version of the Chevy Beat concept. If you've followed the Chevy Beat's evolution, you may remember that a while back, GM took a poll to see which of three subcompacts (which all first appeared at the 2007 New York Autoshow) people liked the best, and they'd build it. The Beat won, but we're not going to get it, so apparently we'll get one of the other two – either the Chevy Groove (above) or Trax (below). These two are less sporty looking, but probably more utilitarian. The Groove is like a little crossover. The Trax is like an Astro van that got caught in a shrink ray. Hopefully we'll get one of these; however, I'm not going to hold my breath.

Oh, the Groove is UGLY. Ew, they can keep it. But the Trax is nice!

I wish more American owned companies would sell smaller more fuel efficient vehicles....
