Chevrolet Aveo 1.2 LS arrives in Europe

Pete Mait

The Chevrolet Aveo, successor to the Kalos, proudly bears the Chevy emblem on the horizontal spar that bisects the mighty grille. The new sense of self-belief of the marque, which has been trading quite well here in Europe for the past few years, is also apparent from some of the other bodywork details. But it is particularly at the front end that the designers have managed to make this model unmistakable. The general look and feel of the Aveo – presented here as a five-door version – is 'European', an initial impression that is confirmed upon inspection of the cabin. A sensation of spaciousness and pleasing materials. The Aveo certainly doesn't come across as down market, and the finishing reinforces this view.
