Chevrolet Aveo, Sedan
#1 of 85 2007 Chevrolet Aveo
Jan 07, 2006 (2:42 pm)
Discuss the new Chevrolet Aveo here, which just debuted at the LA Auto Show. This segment will be highly competitive in the next few years with the introduction of the New Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Toyota Yaris, Nissan Versa and Honda Fit/Jazz. Rumor has that even Ford plans to bring the Fiesta soon.
I like the look of the new car, it looks similar to the Optra/Forenza. The new car is bigger in every dimension, and the interior looks pretty good too. A lot of good features will also be offered.
The Aveo sells very well overseas and also in the US, as Chevy sold 68,085 units in 2005 compared with 56,642 in 2004, a 20.2% increase.
So, discuss this new car here, its looks, pricing, competition, buying experience.......

Looks like another boring sedan from GM. The previous one at least was good looking.

looks ok. I think I still prefer a Yaris or Fit.

Certainly hope that's not dropped. The sedan looks more Chevy and may be some improvement from the original--although a bit boring. The car looks best as a 5-door.

Don't worry it's not being dropped. Only the sedan is being redesigned.
Here are more pictures and if you read to the right it confirms the hatch wont be dropped.
The Aveo looks good in orange don't you think.

Why just the sedan? Is this a total redesign or just a refresh?

4-door sedan Chevy Aveo, not just a refresh. Looks pretty good, although I don't really like the tail treatment. I don't loathe it, either. Reminds me of several other cars back there, from Chevy to Ford to Honda.
I think that if they price this one competitively it will sell well for them. To a degree, at least. Will it be enough to save GM's bacon, though?

It is a total redesign, but only the sedan is being redesigned. I would expect the hatchback redesign to come the next year later probably, in 2008.

Depends how you define "total redesign", I guess. The sheetmetal and the interior are new, but it is still the same car with the same drivetrain.
Have over 50K miles on my 2004, and this 2007 better not have one extra pound to pull with the skimpy 103 HP engine. Mine treats every highway upgrade and on-ramp curve as a battle to be overcome.
Wish they had skipped the redesign and put the millions into a better suspension and 10 extra horsepower. Extra fuel economy would have been nice too!
