Chevrolet. The name means so many things for me. The bowtie. The bowtie and a chequered flag. They’ve both adorned some of the cars that make me stop in my tracks and get lost in a world of big block V8s and thundering exhaust notes. Everything that starts with the letter ‘C’ and ends with ‘amaro’ or ‘hevelle’ has the power to get me down on my knees and crying. So it is no surprise that I have had a certain soft spot for everything adorned with a golden bowtie, be it the underpowered SR-V or the boxy Tavera. But as time went on and I realised that the era of muscle and understeer will never come back no matter how badly I wanted it. And I started to pay less and less attention to the brand. Until the Beat came along with its funky styling and Hollywood star power. But that was a while ago and now there is a new kid on the block. It is supposed to take over from where the U-VA left off. I’ve never been a big fan of the U-VA. If you ask me it never had a very likable face. This new car at least has a better face. But can it force me to take Chevy a bit more seriously?
