All models are powered by a new, more powerful 1.6L Ecotec engine that uses variable valve timing and other upgrades to deliver great fuel economy and responsive performance. Aveo models equipped with the available four-speed automatic transmission deliver impressive highway mileage ratings of 34mpg. City mileage ratings with the automatic are 25 mpg. However, cars equipped with a manual transmission are even more efficient, with estimated fuel economy ratings of 27mpg in the city and 34mpg on the highway.
