2016 Chevrolet Aveo Hatch

By Franky Johnson

Striking design elements of the new Chevrolet Aveo include the aggressive looking front with its exposed twin-headlamps and dual port grille, compact taut body panels with a rising shoulder line and short rear overhangs, the 'hidden' rear door handles which now feature in the c-pillar and a 'body in, wheels out' profile which is now very much part of the new Chevrolet design language.

Like Chevrolet's Spark range, the new Aveo is unquestionably a car that will appeal to younger customers with its sporty hot-hatch look. A four-door sedan variant will launch alongside the hatch next year. Both hatch and sedan are practical small cars with good interior space and Chevrolet expects the its 2016 Aveo also to appeal to families, for whom the current model has been a popular purchase.

The new Chevrolet Aveo has benefited from an extensive development program, resulting in a small car that will meet discerning drivers’ tastes both in terms of design and dynamics. Final specifications of the new Aveo will be carefully tailored for local conditions on the South African market.

The 2016 Aveo Hatch range is downsized from three variants to just one - the Chevrolet Aveo 1.6. The Aveo 1.6 Hatch is now the lowest priced 1.6-litre passenger car in South Africa. Included in the specification at this price are: variable rate power steering; ABS anti-lock brakes; driver’s side airbag; air-conditioning; tilt-adjustable steering wheel: transponder key immobiliser system.
