The Chevrolet Groove is one of three small car concepts introduced on 4 April 2007 at the 2007 New York International Auto Show.[1][2][3] The Groove showcases a new style of small car from General Motors. The mini car was completely designed by GM Daewoo in South Korea. The Groove is powered by a small, efficient 1.0 L diesel engine.[4]

The Chevrolet Beat and the Chevrolet Trax were also showcased to provide a vision for future designs in the GM subcompact segment. These three concepts were voted on after their introduction on the website[5] In the end, both the Groove and Trax lost to the Beat, which is slated for production.

Both Beat and Trax were eventually green-lit for production. While the Groove was not, design language from it has found its way into the Chevrolet Sonic and Chevrolet Orlando designs.
