Sneak Peek: 2012 Chevrolet Aveo

Official debut set for upcoming Paris Motor Show.

The "hot hatch" remake of the Chevrolet Aveo.

Chevrolet is pulling the wraps off of one of the four new models it will launch, later this month, at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

First revealed in show car form, earlier this year, the production version of the 5-door version of the Chevy Aveo will make its debut in the City of Lights and then reach U.S. showrooms next year as a 2012 model.

Part of a wave of new “hot hatch” models, Chevy is betting the Aveo can overcome the long-standing aversion Americans have for 3- and 5-door models.  But the new Aveo will also be offered in a more familiar sedan package, as well.

The next-generation Aveo is distinguished by exposed twin headlamps, the distinctive Chevy dual port grille and a rising beltline that gives the new hatchback a sense of kinetic motion.

Sneak Peeks!

Aimed at today’s more demanding young buyers, Chevrolet promises a more refined interior than was offered in past econoboxes, including a wraparound fascia on the instrument panel, with blue backlighting on the center console and an unusual, motorcycle-inspired gauge cluster.

No more econobox.

Not you father's econobox, this is the production version of the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo.

What’s happened to the econobox?

U.S. motorists on the budget traditionally had two options: get something used or plunk your limited cash down for a stripped-down form of basic transportation.  But suddenly, the classic, cheap-and-cheerful economy car doesn’t quite look so cheesy anymore.

Stay on Top of the Automotive World!

We’ve been seeing a lot of examples of this new world order, in recent months, notably including such models as the Ford Focus and Fiesta, as well as the next-generation Chevrolet Aveo, a concept version of which General Motors pulled the lid off at the recent Detroit Auto Show.
