“Cobalt has always been an efficient performer, but the changes with the new XFE elevate it to a leadership position that will appeal to customers who put fuel economy at the top of their new-car priority list,” said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. “Better still, the efficiency enhancements don’t come at the price of the safety and convenience features that serve as the foundation of Cobalt’s value story.”

The new, higher-efficiency Cobalts are identified at a glance with “XFE” badges on the trunk lid. Customers can also verify the model they’re shopping is the higher-mileage model by checking for the “36 mpg” designation on the window sticker.

Like all U.S.-market Cobalt models, XFE editions come standard with:

  • Head curtain side-impact air bags
  • Air conditioning
  • XM Satellite Radio
  • AM/FM radio with CD and MP3 playback
  • Rear defogger
  • Center console with two power outlets

The Cobalt XFE engine is powered by a 2.2L Ecotec engine that delivers excellent performance in conjunction with the class-leading fuel economy. The Ecotec engine also features numerous long-life maintenance items that help reduce ownership costs.

“Any way you look at it, the Cobalt XFE is a smart choice for those looking to maximize their car-buying dollar,” said Peper. “It’s well equipped, efficient and plenty of fun to drive.”
