The sleek new design of the Aveo is getting some widespread attention. The car, expected to sell in US and Canada in 2011, appeals to a younger crowd looking for that sporty edge vehicle. Entering the highly competitive world grid of small car concepts, the Aveo is standing ground.
It’s design elements consist of a dynamic looking front with exposed twin-headlamps and Chevrolet’s signature dual port grille, compact taut body panels with a rising shoulder line and short rear overhangs, rear door handles “hidden’ in the c-pillar and a ‘body in, wheels out’ profile. The new Aveo has a longer and wider body than the current model.
It has a surprisingly spacious interior with a motorcycle inspired instrument panel. The center console features subtle blue back lighting. The entire cabin space wraps around the driver and passenger in a futuristic space craft fashion. With more storage space, a modern sound system, included USB, auxiliary and blue tooth ports, what’s not to like? This car is sure to please.
Chevrolet’s first 6 speed automatic transmission on a small car, will be featured as in option in the European markets with the 1.4 or 1.6 liter engine.
At the Detroit Auto Show in January, Chevrolet General Manager, Jim Campbell, commented on the new Aveo-as well as the Spark and Cruze. These three cars are the future of the car industry.
“Our new small cars and the Volt electric vehicle with extended-range capabilities represent cornerstones in Chevrolet’s gas-friendly to gas-free approach,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet general manager. “We expect the trio of Spark, Aveo and Cruze to be fuel economy leaders, while the Volt can operate gas-free before switching to extended-range capability when the battery runs low.”
