Targeted to customers under 30, the Chevrolet Code 130R Concept is a compact three-box sportscar equipped with a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine and a rear wheel drive transmission.


Together with the Tru 140S Concept, the Code 130R aims at exploring new emotional models targeted to young customers under 30 years, as well as promoting discussion and suggest ideas for next-generation cars.

Chevrolet Code 130R Concept The exterior has a compact three-box layout which shows some similarities with the BMW 1-Series Coupé.

A touch of dynamism is provided by the muscular shoulders, the sculpted flanks and the slightly descending roofline, while the large 10-inch wheels contribute to the vehicle’s stance.

The sporty character is also underlined by the all-new red metallic paint, contrasted by the matte anodized gold wheels.

The front end has an aggressive front fascia with the typical double trapezoidal grille, while the rear end is characterized by LED tail lights that give a visual hint at the company’s flagship, the Camaro.

Like the Tru 10S Concept sister model, the Code 130R is powered by a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine with 150 hp, which in this case is coupled with a rear wheel drive transmission.

The unit is equipped with the eAssist technology, which includes a start-stop system, a braking energy recovery system and is capable of smoothing torque during acceleration.

Speaking about the Tru 140S and the Code 130R, Frank Saucedo, director of the GM North America Advanced Design studio in Los Angeles, commented: “Young customers tell us they want functionality with coupe-like aesthetics. Both the Code and Tru body styles resonated with this audience.”

“This buyer prizes connectivity. Allowing them to stay connected by integrating their personal devices through MyLink and WiFi enabling the vehicle to be their own docking station,” said Saucedo.

“The interiors currently exist in 2D only. This allows us the flexibility to continue the discussion and encourage more dialogue as we continue to develop these concepts.”

    Another “nice-but” design. Yes, it does have too much resemblance with BMW 1 series coupe (not sure if its a drawback though). Lets see how the BM´s S1 coupe shall look like!!
