orange is MY color for this car!!! it is not too flashy it just has the right amount of "look at me" (the car, not the driver) without being right in your face.
i also like the medium gray, pretty classy. under no consideration would I get the yellow one...no way...once was enough back in the 90's...

#30 of 85 Where did the SVM Sedan Go?

Where did the SVM Aveo Sedan go? Dropping that line raised the price up to starting around 12k as opposed to the sub 10k Hatchback. That is the main differense I saw with Chevy revamping the Sedan, the price jump? Anybody heard of why they dropped it or if its coming back later this year?
Also, The Aveo appeals to a mainly youthful market, myself included. Am I alone when I say that some sort of Aveo SS would hit the market by storm? Maybe put the Cobalt Supercharged SS 2.0L in the Aveo. That would more than solve the acceleration problem and would sale like hotcakes to the younger buyers. Chevy could do that and still probably keep the price under 15k.

Acceleration tests by magazines ranging from Car and Driver to Motor Trend and Popular Mechanics actually show that the Yaris is faster than the Accent.

I don't follow your Fit/Accent price comparison. I did pricing on their websites last month, and the '06 Accent is $14,645 with Auto, Air, ABS, etc., but without power windows/locks. The '07 Fit is $15,200 with everything, including power windows/locks, plus whatever kooky stuff they made standard. Both of those prices include destination.

The 2007 Chevy Aveo uses the same 8-year-old chassis (according to GM).
One can clearly see this doesn't fare well for it's offset crash test results.
Looks like GM\Daewoo still has a long way to go compared to market leaders Toyota Yaris and Honda Fit.

While not one of the worst crash tests I've ever seen, that's... pretty bad. Which model is that? It doesn't look like the old Aveo. But if that's not the new one, the new one might do better. I mean, isn't the new Chevy Uplander technically based on the same chassis as the old Chevy Venture? The Venture had some of the scariest crash results I've ever seen, yet the Uplander received a good score.
I'm still curious to see how the Fit will crash test. It wasn't originally designed for tougher U.S. standards, plus the hood of the car is really, really short.

That is the new Aveo sedan destined for the US. It's been available in many countries already (as Chevrolet, Daewoo, Holden brands) and performed poorly in the European and Australian frontal impact crash tests.
Where the 04-06 model was 5 stars, the redesign has fared worse (1 1/2 stars in the Euro NCAP tests), with a high likelihood of life-threatening injury to the driver.
Euro NCAP test -- Aveo
It wouldn't surprise me to see GM come up with improvements to the crashworthiness before the car is sold in America.
