In Mexico you might say: "Ese carro está bien padre." or "Ese carro está bien chido" -It's been my observation that "chido" is more street slang than "padre" which is still slang but a bit more average.

Calvo's link is great.

Well cool in the spanish dictionary (i.e. for being hip, trendy, and laid back) means: "onda."

So: She's really cool. = Está muy en la onda.

  • I think cool is more general, "en la onda" is something like "that has a good wave" - ismarodri_uy Mar 22, 2010 flag

If further research desired. At the top of the page there's a more heading and in it I found there's a phrasebook section it might be in there.

It appears that "cool" is said in a different way depending on where you are. Does anyone know how it is expressed in Spain?
