The new Chevrolet Aveo is unquestionably a car that will appeal to younger customers with its sporty hot-hatch look. With its practicality and good interior space the Chevrolet will also appeal to families.
There is a range of four cylinder petrol and diesel engines available offered incorporating the latest technologies such as variable valve timing, double continuous variable cam phasing and common rail fuel injection for the diesels. The petrol engine range includes a 1.2 litre version (at 86 hp) and a 1.4 litre unit (100 hp). For the first time the Chevrolet Aveo will be offered with two versions of a 1.3 litre diesel engine (at 75 hp and at 95 hp) featuring Start/Stop technology.
The interior design features an analogue tachometer combined with a digital speedo and warning lights. Up-market blue backlighting features on the centre console while the whole of the front cabin is enveloped in a wrap-round fascia. This can be colour-coded and flows from the dash into both the driver's and front passenger’s doors. There are multiple storage spaces in the centre stack and there is a modern audio system with USB, aux-in and Bluetooth functionality.
Prices start at £6995 and a five year warranty now comes as standard on all new Chevrolets.
