The Chevrolet Aveo was a supermini rival to cars like the Vauxhall Corsa, Ford Fiesta, Suzuki Swift and Hyundai i20 . The second-generation pictured above was an improved version of the first generation Aveo.
The name Aveo is latin for “desire” but sadly, the sales of the Aveo never really took off in the UK, so it was discontinued. The good news is that you still can buy a used Aveo, and we have a number of car finance solutions should you need them.
The Aveo was an affordable and fuel-efficient vehicle. There were two versions: a surprisingly spacious 4-door sedan and the versatile 5-door Aveo. All Aveo models had standard features including daytime running lamps, four-wheel antilock brakes, and dual front air bags.
This standard equipment was an improvement over the original Aveo, and the styling was more aggressive. With a sporty exterior, hidden rear door handles and confident, bold headlights, it was a nice looking car. The interior also felt sporty, with an LED speedometer and stylish rev counter.
The diesel engine offered impressive fuel economy but the rest of the engines felt underpowered, with lacklustre handling.
