New concepts introduced at the North American International Auto Show include the Saturn Curve and Chevy Nomad; both built on the same adaptable KAPPA platform.
With our commercial vehicle recovery service, Safeways Car Delivery Essex can take the stress out of a breakdown by recovering your Saturn Concept with minimal waiting time.
The new Saturn concept is a 2+2 sport coupe with a contemporary shape and expressive curves making the name ‘Curve’ an obvious choice. The design of the Curve is almost comforting with rounded edges and graceful lines.
Blonde wood, charcoal-colored leather and terracotta inserts adorn the interior creating a sophisticated feel amidst floating design elements in the console, door inserts and roof panel.
Thanks to GM’s new KAPPA architecture, the Curve sits on rear-wheel drive, independent front and rear suspensions with a supportive chassis built with full-length hydroformed frame rails. Power comes from a 2.2-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine producing more than 200 horsepower.
Moving in design style from the roadster and sport coupe, GM also introduced the Chevy Nomad concept. Again based on KAPPA architecture, the Nomad takes its influence from the 1954 Nomad concept.
A type of sporty wagon, the Nomad rests on a 107-inch wheelbase and is powered by a turbocharged Ecotec 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine that turns out 250 horsepower. A Hydra-Matic 5L40-E electronically controlled five-speed automatic transmission is offered with finger-operated tap shifting.
Inside and out, the Nomad is retro with cool colors like Ice Blue Metallic and Cove Blue evoking a sense of peace along with pure style. Additional accents include blue aluminum gauges, black leather trim and blue lighting.
According to Jose Gonzales, the lead interior designer, “Wherever you look or whatever you touch in the Nomad, it creates a satisfying emotional reaction. There are cars that offer more room and amenities, but the Nomad’s environment has soul. It’s a car you want to get in and drive.”
All three vehicles: the Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Curve and Chevy Nomad, along with the Hummer H3T revealed at the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, hint at an innovative and sophisticated growing line-up that will catapult General Motors into a more urban market as opposed to that of their past.
