Chevy Aveo Close View

The Chevrolet Aveo is a subcompact vehicle manufactured since 2002 by GM Daewoo subsidiary of General Motors. Marketed worldwide in 120 countries under five brands, the first generation Aveo was originally called Daewoo Kalos in its home market South Korea. In other markets, the first generation model was marketed as the Holden Barina in Australasia, Pontiac G3 in the United States and later Canada. The second generation Aveo debuted in January 2011, marketed globally as the "Chevrolet Aveo", in North America as the Chevrolet Sonic.

Aveo is available as a four-door sedan or a versatile five-door hatchback called the Aveo 5. The Aveo sedan was extensively updated for 2007 and the hatchback received the same treatment for 2009. The Aveo's basic architecture and mechanical underpinnings date to 2004. Aveo 2LT. The 2010 Chevrolet Aveo comes with an updated 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 108 horsepower, which is adequate for such an affordable car. Transmission choices are either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. Three trim levels are offered: Special Value, LS and LT.

Chevy Aveo The Aveo5 is equipped with Chevy Aveo Accessories such as 14-inch steel wheels, manual mirrors and windows, manual locks, side airbags and a radio with four speakers. The LS adds air-conditioning and carpeted floor mats, as well as desired options such as cruise control, a sunroof, antilock brakes, power windows, keyless entry, a CD/MP3 player and 15-inch alloy wheels. The LT trim is available on the sedan only and includes most of the LS model's options as standard and can be ordered with leatherette seating and an upgraded audio system.

The Aveo features the third generation of GM's 1.6-liter Ecotec engine, which gains two horsepower for 2010 for a total of 108 horsepower. With the manual transmission, Aveo is EPA-estimated to deliver 27 mpg in the city and 35 on the highway. The new 2011 Sonic will be available with a 1.8-liter inline-four producing 135 hp and 125 lb·ft torque, or a 1.4-liter turbo inline-four producing 138 hp and 148 lb·ft torque. The 1.8-liter inline-four will be mated to a standard five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, while the 1.4-liter turbo will have a six-speed manual transmission.

Chevy Aveo The Aveo's basic controls, such as the climate system and stereo, are easy to use and within close reach. The layout is quite simple, so drivers won't be distracted looking for buttons. All radios come with an auxiliary jack for iPods and other MP3 players. The dash is all hard plastic, but that's to be expected in this class. The instrument panel features black-faced gauges with white numbers and watch-like dials. A driver information center is located between the gauges. A digital clock sits on top of the dash at the base of the windshield.

The Aveo's small interior provides a commanding view for all passengers, and a fully reclining front passenger seat and a 60/40-split folding rear seat expand the Aveo's interior cargo capacity, enabling long items, such as skis, to be carried between the trunk and passenger compartment. The sedan's trunk offers 12.4 cubic feet of storage space. The Aveo5 also has a fold-down rear seat and it can carry up to 42 cubic feet of cargo. The rear cargo floor is not flat, as there is a step from the rear floor to the folded seats. If you'll be using the cargo compartment more than the back seat, the Aveo makes a lot of sense.
