After 1971, other GM divisions began rebadging the Nova as their new entry-level vehicle, such as the Pontiac Ventura II (once a trim option for full-size Pontiacs to 1970), Oldsmobile Omega and the Buick Apollo.

From 1980 onwards, the Nova's original niche in the Chevrolet lineup was filled by front-wheel drive compacts including the Citation (1980 to 1985), and Corsica (1987 to 1996).What kind of engine does a 1971 Nova have?
1971 Novas were similar to the previous year but with the loss of the simulated fender vents and the discontinuation of the 396 in³ engine for the SS with the 350 in³ engine taking its place. 1971 also saw the introduction of the Rally Nova, a trim level that only lasted two years (until it resurfaced in 1977).
