Chevrolet Aveo Shown Prior To Paris


Now Chevrolet’s in the UK don’t really do very well for two key reasons. 1 is that they are not bold muscle cars like they are in the states and the 2nd reason is that instead of iconic cars bulging with BHP we get poorly designed boxes that are about as exciting as waiting paint dry. So Chevy’s new hatchback that will debut at the Paris motor show wasn’t exactly a prospect that excited us, that was until we checked our inbox this morning…

This is the new Aveo, a very aggressive looking hatch that is bound for European shores. Could America now be offering something to compete with its Euro brethren in the small car market of which they thrive? Well if the visual package is anything go by, I’m going to have to say yes! The Aveo will go on sale autumn 2011 and comes with the option of a 1.2 litre or 1.4 litre petrol engine as well as two 1.3 diesels. Those diesels will also come with start/stop technology to reduce CO2 emissions from the little car. The 1.4 also sees a first for small Chevy’s as it comes with the option of a 6 speed automatic gearbox.
