About Chevrolet Chevette

Being regarded as the early example of a "world car", Chevrolet Chevette was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division between 1975 and 1987 as a subcompact car. Originally introduced as a replacement for the ill-starred Chevrolet Vega in the United States market, Chevette was Chevrolet's entry-level subcompact vehicle and the best-selling small car in the U.S. for model years 1979 and 1980. The production of Chevette ceased in December of 1986 in the United States, and it was eventually replaced by Chevrolet Sprint in Canada and Geo Metro/Chevrolet Metro in the U.S. after being manufactured for only one generation.
Chevrolet Chevette made its debut in September 1975 as a 1975 model and was produced based on the GM T-body platform. Developed under the background of Federal CAFÉ standards, 1973 oil crisis and GM's Energy Task Force, Chevette was offered in only one body style: 3-door and 5-door hatchback. Being the lightest car marketed in the U.S., Chevette came in Rally, Woody and Scooter, CS, and S models. During its lifetime, Chevette was powered by a 1.4 L inline 4-cylinder engine, 1.6 L I4 and 1.8 L inline 4-cylinder diesel engine. And all these engines sent power through 4-speed, 5-speed manual and 3-speed Hydramatic transmissions to the rear wheels.
