Chevrolet’s presence at this year’s SEMA show is headlined by a couple of ordinary family cars. The Chevrolet Blue Line Concepts are a little misleading, since the name and the fact that they are based on the Malibu and Cruze hatchback makes you believe they are a pair of eco cars with no business being there at SEMA. But they are not.
Chevrolet Blue Line Concepts are a pair of concepts prepared to showcase the production and concept accessories were developed in Chevrolet’s design. These accessories are numerous in numbers but have a subtle design and do not mess with the character of these cars as family runabouts.
