The Chevy Aveo, which is assembled by GM Daewoo in Korea, is offered in two body styles for 2009 -- a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback called the Aveo5.
The sedan was redesigned for 2008, and this year both it and the newly restyled Aveo5 utilize a new 107-hp, 1.6L Ecotec DOHC 4-cylinder engine with variable valve timing, which can be matched to a standard 5-speed manual gearbox or optional 4-speed automatic transmission. The automatic transmission features a hold control mode to hold a higher gear and to aid traction on slippery roads. The new engine improves fuel economy to 26 mpg city and 34 mpg highway, and has been tuned for quieter performance.
All Aveo models have a MacPherson strut front suspension with a stabilizer bar, and a compound-link rear independent suspension with gas-charged shocks, along with variable-rate power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering. One year of Onstar is standard on all Aveos, as are dual-stage front airbags and seat-mounted side air bags for front occupants. A tire pressure monitoring system is also standard.
Anti-lock brakes are optional across the line.
Both the sedan and hatchback feature theater-style rear seating, with a 60/40-split back seat that folds forward to expand the cargo area.
Aveos are available in mid-range LS and well-equipped LT models. On LS trim, standard features include tilt steering, a rear defogger, air conditioning, and an AM/FM stereo with auxiliary input. LT models come with the most standard features including heated outside mirrors, keyless entry, cruise control, power locks, and a 6-speaker CD/MP3 sound system.
Fifteen-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels are available on all LS models and standard on the LT cars. Other noteworthy options include steering wheel audio control, a power sunroof and on the LT, perforated leatherette seats.
For 2009, the Aveo sedan is largely unchanged, while the Aveo5 hatchback receives a significant facelift both outside and in. The exterior has a sportier, more modern look, while interior materials have been upgraded. The Aveo now utilizes a new, more fuel-efficient Ecotec 1.6L inline-4 with variable valve timing. As a result, power is up 4 horsepower to 107. GM's OnStar system is now standard on all Aveo models. The Aveo5 Special Value Model (SVM) has been dropped, so that both sedan and hatchback are now offered in LS and LT trims. Ten exterior colors are now available.
The 2009 Chevrolet Aveo appeals to shoppers primarily on the basis of its very low initial price, which makes it the lowest-priced passenger car currently for sale in the U.S. By utilizing "tall car" design aesthetics, both body styles are quite roomy inside and have a comfortable ride relative to other small cars. The standard GM OnStar helps to set it apart from other cars in its class.
Lowest priced car in America; very good fuel economy; roomy interior.
