Did anyone happen to see a Chevrolet Cobalt commerical with a smart car parked beside it at the beginning of the commercial?

Yes and they try their hardest to make the smart look bad
I'm glad somebody else saw it. I was beginning to think I was seeing things!!!!

This one?

Let's see, comparing the Passion to the Cobalt 2LT (alloy wheels and ABS)...

Cobalt doesn't have ESP (that's only on the Turbo... which only gets 30 MPG)

Cobalt costs $2,000 More, AFTER $2,000 off from GM.
(Base on Passion $14635, Base on Cobalt $18,560)

Cobalt will likely have lower resale value than smart.

So, $4,000 for a trunk? Seems a bit pricey. Funny, they don't mention that :)
That's it!! You just have to ask yourself, which one is cuter? I'll bet the smart gets more smiles to the gallon!!!

I bought it because it was Small & Cute... They can't beat that...<:-))
which is funny considering the only thing it's lacking is the back seat. Yeah... the drunk space might not be very deep, but it is quite a bit taller than what's in the Cobalt.... oh yeah, unless you nix the "Back seat" option and fold the seats down, if they even can be folded down.
It's Fun, and has an Out-Sized Personality... Cobalt can't beat that...<:-))
GM has a long standing habit of comparing a few features of their cars with the competition but not comparing the overall car. 30 years ago the Baby Cadillac was better than a BMW 3-Series because you could get leather seats which weren't available in the BMW- So naturally the Cadillac was a better car! Nothing else mattered. Let's guess why GM is bankrupt?

If you go to the Cobalt site, it's got a comparison between it and up to three other cars. The default is that it shows Chevy is better in every category... only because it beats ONE of the cars in that category. If you specify just one car for comparison (and you can select other cars) it only shows the categories in which Chevy is better. If you compare it to smart, it won't even show the MPG category. And, they think the Cobalt is better than the ForTwo because the Cobalt is longer, wider, and not as tall. I guess it must be made for short, wide people :)
And look at the slope of the Cobalt roof--"5 passenger" is a misnomer, unless 3 of those passengers are under 5 feet in height! Doubt you'll get 5 college buddies in that car...
US auto makers still don't get it.
The comparision chart reminds me of a recent FIOS comparision chart that listed things like "Television delivered through reliable Fiber lines supplied by Verizon."

There is no way that the competition could possibly be a "yes" for that one.

And since when is longer and wider better?

Furthermore, they claim the advantage for MPG in city even though they are lower than others. futhermore they claim advantage with 4 wheel anti-lock brakes even though it is optional..

Give me a break!
