Chevrolet’s distributor in Malaysia Hicomobil does not have an entry level sedan in Malaysia at the moment, unlike Singapore which has the Chevrolet Aveo Sedan. Think of the Aveo with a sedan boot like how the City is a Jazz with a boot.
The Chevrolet Aveo Sedan or Daewoo Gentra was previewed at the Shanghai Auto Show in April. It comes with a 1.5 litre E-TEC II DOHC engine. There are also 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre engines available. Engine offerings are likely to be based on the market it’s in.
The Gentra will replace the Daewoo Kalos, of which the current Chevrolet Aveo in Malaysia is based on.
Sales are to begin on September 21 2005.
You might be wondering why I file an American marque such as Chevrolet under Koreans. Most of the Chevys here in Malaysia are actually rebadged GM Daewoo cars.
Hicomobil should bring this in and put it head to head with the Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent.
