- An affordable small family hatch with sporting style and enhanced Chassis dynamics
The Chevrolet Kalos always receives positive comment for its fresh, contemporary style but the new Kalos Sport three-door has been further enhanced with its sporting cues. The new look is complemented by the use of a new mesh grille, leather interior, lower and stiffer springs offering sharper chassis dynamics for more spirited driving enjoyment, and a new ‘big bore’ sporty exhaust - and all for just £9,995 on the road.
The new Chevrolet Kalos Sport is based on recently introduced Kalos 1.4 16v three-door hatchback. It has been specifically designed to appeal to the younger motorist looking for modern, sporting style and good driving characteristics but without the sting in the tail of high insurance and running costs.
The Kalos Sport is not an overt, high performance GTI although with its 94 Ps 16 valve engine, neither is it slow, with a top speed of 109 mph and a 0-62 mph time of 11.1 seconds. It benefits from all the safety, comfort and convenience equipment that you would expect from Chevrolet, including twin front and side airbags, power steering, ABS, central door locking, power windows and CD player, but adds unique 15"x6J alloy wheels finished in high-power silver and shod with 195/50VR-15 tyres, 25 mm lowered suspension utilising stiffer springs and a through-flow rear silencer, with chrome tailpipe, for a more sporting exhaust note. The already light, airy and spacious interior of the three-door body is further improved with two-tone leather trim - including a leather covered steering wheel gear knob - stainless steel door sill kick plates and brushed aluminium detailing for the instruments and facia centre vents.
Not only is the Chevrolet Kalos Sport a value for money purchase, it’s value for money to run with an insurance group of 6A (with standard Thatcham Cat 2 immobiliser) and Chevrolet’s leading peace of mind package featuring 3-year’s/60,000 miles free servicing, 3-year/60,000 mile warranty and 3-year’s AA Total roadside assistance.
The new Kalos Sport is now available at Chevrolet retailers across the UK.Published 18 May 2005
