The new Chevrolet Aveo 5-door will bring some 'hot-hatch' style to the small car segment, with the final production ready version looking every bit as good as the Chevrolet Aveo RS show car concept shown at the Detroit and Geneva shows this year.
The new Chevrolet Aveo has benefited from an extensive European development program, the result of which is a car that will satisfy European tastes in terms of design and dynamics. Like the Chevrolet Spark which was launched earlier this year, Chevrolet expects the new Chevrolet Aveo to appeal to younger buyers, while retaining its identity as a practical, spacious small hatchback too.
Coming to market in Europe in the summer of 2011, the new Chevrolet Aveo is both longer and wider than the current model. It has a spacious interior and also boasts a cargo volume that is among the best in segment. The Chevrolet Aveo's new interior is not just about space, however; the motorcycle inspired instrument binnacle, the upmarket backlighting and wraparound design of the front fascia take the Chevrolet Aveo to a new level.
A comprehensive range of four cylinder petrol and diesel engines will be available, incorporating VVT, double continuous variable cam phasing and common rail fuel injection technology. Chevrolet's first 6-speed transmission for a small car will also feature as an option on selected engines.Published 23 September 2010
