We told you about Chevrolet’s plans to debut three minicar concepts at the New York Auto Show last week with a look at one of them called the Trax concept. Now, we get our first look at all three, including a lot more photos and information.
GM wants the public to pick which one of the three they’d like to see in production at www.vote4chevrolet.com. To that end we’ll give you a brief breakdown of each one with more information coming tomorrow. Lots of photos of each concept are below.
Chevrolet Beat: Designed by GM’s South Korean design studio, the Beat is a two-door hatchback aimed at the Scion crowd with a decidedly import look. It’s powered by a 1.4 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and rolls on 17-inch wheels.
Chevrolet Groove: The Groove again looks to steal customers from Scion with its four-door design. It too runs on 17-inch wheels but features a 1.0-liter diesel engine for power.
Chevrolet Trax: The first minicar we saw still seems the most original and features more American styling. It runs on 16-inch wheels and a 1.0-liter gasoline engine.
