We previously had a clue to the new Aveo’s design with the helped of 3D patent renderings that were leaked a few months ago. Chevrolet has now released full details of the car and images to go along with it. The new Aveo is bigger in size than the previous model. A redesigned front end has been worked into the equation along with a new bumper and hidden rear door handles.
Structurally, the Aveo uses a tight body frame integral (BFI) structure offering more rigidity. Inside, the Aveo is said to contain multiple storage space that is coupled with quality materials used in the interior.
Under the hood, customers will have the option of petrol or diesel engines. This is made out of a 70hp and 86hp 1.2 litre, a 100hp 1.4 litre as well as a 115hp 1.6 litre. The diesel engine will consist of a 75hp 1.3 litre engine or a slightly uprated 95hp version, both of which will come with automatic start-stop technology.
Power will be transferred to the road via a 5 or 6-speed manual, with an option of a 6 speed automatic as well. It will also feature safety such as ABS, Electronic power steering (EPS) and Electronic stability control (ESC). Chevrolet will launch the Aveo hatchback and the sedan variant some time in mid-2011. It will also make an appearance at the Paris Motor Show this year.
