General Motors would like to lure in younger buyers with a new small car that boasts more evocative styling. To that end, the company unveiled two new concepts at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show that may hint at things to come from Chevrolet. This is the first called the Chevrolet Code 130R Concept, which boasts a traditional coupe profile and seating for four. Subtle fender flares and an upright fascia help give the vehicle an aggressive, masculine presence, though GM says a production version could boast up to 40 miles per gallon.

Under the hood of the Code 130R, a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 150 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque, and an eAssist system lends an electric hand when needed. The Code 130R also boasts either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. With a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout, the Code 130R would offer buyers an engaging drive and design in an economical and affordable package, if it were ever built.

While purely a concept at this stage, GM says a production version would likely carry a price tag of around $25,000. That would put the sports car in perfect fighting range with the likes of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S should the Code 130R Concept ever make it to the factory floor. Hit the jump for the press release and check out our galleries of live and official photos.

I'm not sure on the size of it but it looks a little bigger than a 1 series BMW. Almost looks like one too.

I like it though, pretty cool looking.

The more I look at it the more I want one. If it drives anything like a sky/solstice im sold I loved how they drove, smaller cars in RWD are a tone of fun and have a great feel to them. I also love the 70/80's proportions of it, short trunk and longer hood and how the back glass drops straight down. Yes some of it is rounded off but it is shaped very much like havoc1482's car.

Looking at the side windows, I'm reminded of the old Neon coupe.

No! BAD! Nothing GM is allowed to be compared to a Neon.
