    Chevy Tru 140-S Concept

    The Tru 140S hatchback is designed to look fast and exotic, and can provide space for four passengers—it resembles Chevy’s take on the now-dead Mitsubishi Eclipse mixed with some Cadillac CTS coupe cues. This front-wheel-drive concept is based on the same platform as the Cruze and Volt, which makes it a possible candidate for the latter’s extended-range electric technology somewhere down the road. The Cruze/Volt wheelbase has been stretched for the Tru 140S, its overall length falls between those of the sedans, and it is wider and significantly taller than both. Like the Code 130R, this concept gets its power from a 1.4-liter turbo four—stop/start tech takes the place of the mild-hybrid setup—and would get the same theoretical transmission choices. The glitzy 21-inch wheels likely would be downsized for production.

    If I were given that car I'd try to sell it.

    My girl got a used Chevy Malibu. I have never really been a fan of Chevy but it's not a bad little car..seems pretty solid and no problems so far.
