11 October 2011

The all-new Chevrolet Aveo will cost from £9995 on the road when it goes on sale in January 2012.

The Aveo will be launched with three trim levels and four engine variants – an 85bhp 1.2 petrol, a 100bhp 1.4 petrol and a 1.4 diesel in two states of tune, producing either 74bhp or 94bhp.

The entry-level 1.2LS features remote locking, a CD-radio, electric front windows, a rear spoiler and electrically adjustable heated door-mirrors. The LS trim level is only available with the 1.2 petrol engine.

A £1000 premium is asked for the mid-range LT trim which adds 15-inch alloy wheels, audio controls on the steering wheel, air conditioning, a four-way adjustable driver’s seat, a sunglasses holder, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a chrome gear-knob surround.

The top-spec LTZ trim level is available with either the 1.4 petrol or the 94bhp diesel. Priced from £12,195, the LTZ trim adds a leather steering wheel, front fog lamps, rear parking sensors and automatic headlamps.

All models are driven through a five-speed gearbox with the option of a six-speed automatic on the 1.4 petrol.

According to Chevrolet UK managing director Mark Terry, the Aveo draws on the company’s “iconic models, such as the Camaro and Corvette, for its styling influence, with cues such as the distinctive round headlamps and dual-cockpit interior giving it a lot more personality then you’d normally find in this sector.”

The 1.3 LT VCDi Ecodiesel will be available for £12,795 and produces 95g/km of CO2, exempting it from the Congestion Charge.
