2011 Chevrolet Aveo Hatchback spy shots

With the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo, General Motors is taking its small car destiny in its own hands, bringing its Honda Fit fighter home to America--at least in terms of design and production. Unlike the first-generation model, which was designed largely in South Korea, the new Aveo will be mostly homegrown, and if the Detroit Auto Show’s striking Aveo RS Concept is anything to go by it looks like GM has a definite winner on its hands.

We already have a fairly good idea as to how the new Aveo will look thanks to the Aveo RS Concept but these latest spy shots, plus previously released official renderings of the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo Sedan, put an end to most of the guess work.

As expected the production version loses the aggressive bodykit and 19 inch wheels of the concept but thankfully the general look of the car remains the same. The introduction of a four-door sedan, as well as the regular hatchback, also means the new Aveo lineup will stand a better chance competing against the likes of the Ford Fiesta and the hatchback-only Honda Fit. The interior gets Chevrolet’s new family styling, which sees it share much of its design with cars like the Cruze and Equinox.

Underneath the new sheet metal is GM’s Global Gamma II chassis, which is capable of spawning the pictured sedan, plus three- and five-door body styles. Powertrains will include both naturally-aspirated and turbocharged versions of GM’s new 1.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine.

The 2011 Chevrolet Aveo Hatchback and Sedan are expected to go on sale in January 2011, with production taking place at GM's Orion Township plant in Michigan.

  3. It's good Chevrolet kept most of the design elements from the concept RS version and the engine spec is looking very good for this car.
    This is going to be the next Barina overseas.
