Chevrolet has taken the wraps off of the production version of the 2012 Chevrolet Aveo. The new model looks good, carrying over the attractive looks of the Aveo RS show car from the 2010 North American International Auto Show. We are particularly fond of the twin headlights, black surrounds on the taillights, and the rear door handles mounted in the C-pillar.
Our spy photographer sent over these mysterious photos of a Chevrolet testing with a group of Aveo hatchbacks. Could it be that an Aveo sedan will come to market, slotting between the Spark and the Cruze. We’ll have to keep our ear to the ground, and our eyes open for more evidence.
We have a confession to make: In its current form, the Chevrolet Aveo has been the butt of many a joke within the automotive industry. It isn’t nearly as good as anything else in the class, and in a time when more focus is being put on B- and C-segment cars, General Motors really disappointed with its smallest offering. But a new version is on the horizon. And judging by the preliminary information about the Aveo RS show car (which will appear next week at the Detroit Auto Show), drastic changes are in the works.
