Chevrolet Trax or Groove coming to the U.S. in 2011

So you’re all pretty disappointed that GM has decided not to offer the upcoming Chevrolet Beat in the U.S . Well worry not – along with the Chevrolet Cruze , due out in 2010, GM will replace the Aveo with a new subcompact based on the Groove or Trax minicars that were unveiled at the 2007 New York Auto Show .

According to Ed Pepper, Chevrolet’s Vice President, a version of the Groove or Trax will arrive in the U.S. by 2011. "Of the triplets, we will get one of those variants," Peper told Automotive News . Which one? "I don’t want to say at this point."

Peper said that the car will be very similar to one of those concepts but will be a little bit larger to meet U.S. crash test standards. The front fender and grille will likely be extended to meet safety standards.

We’re putting our money on the Trax since GM will be marketing it in the upcoming Transformers: Rise of the Fallen .
