Styling hints of Corvette to be found in future Chevrolet models

Article by Christian A., on December 17, 2014

If in the near future you would a hint of the Chevrolet Corvette in a number of the brand’s new cars, don’t be surprised as the General Motors really intend to do so. According to GM global design chief Ed Welburn, the carmaker’s designers working harder to infuse some DNA from the Corvette into the Chevrolet’s next generation of cars that will be launched starting 2015.

He named some of these cars – Malibu, Cruze and Volt – that will feature subtle design elements of the Corvette like its hexagonal taillights and its taut hood. "I always look at the hood of the Corvette and the sectioning, the way it's taut, very lean, very sporty," Welburn remarked to Automotive News last week, adding that such styling will be part of “everything we do for Chevrolet."

Welburn disclosed that one of those elements tha will be hinted in the brand’s other models will be the Corvette's squared-off taillights, which has been a source of controversy among loyalists.

The seventh-generation Corvette has been acclaimed for its jet fighter-inspired styling, which the brand’s global chief called as “stunning.” Chevrolet wants to push this kind of exterior styling into its other vehicles to gain some competitive edge.

"That’s something we really want to push," Chevrolet global chief Alan Batey told Automotive News in an interview in November.
