Chevrolet Aveo Review
Expert Review by Maxabout
The aesthetically pleasing Chevrolet Aveo was introduced in India in 2010. An elegant midsize sedan in an affordable price range, the car is designed for those who want to combine beauty with pragmatism. It is great for the city, it is great for the highway and its powerful engine can even push it over uneven terrain with relative ease. If you are looking for a car that you can go to office on weekdays and for long drives away from the city during weekends, then this is definitely the car you should buy.
Graceful is the first word that comes to mind when first laying your eyes on the Aveo. With gentle and smooth curves that flow unobtrusively from one end to another, the midsize sedan is indeed a fine example of Chevrolet's Dynamic Structure Design concept. Its streamlined body with smooth curves and seamless contour lines give it perfect harmony with the surrounding. Its sporty headlights, chrome-coated front grille and bumpers that are the same color as the body give it a classy look. The 14" 5-spoke wheels, which are available in both alloy and steel, are stylish and add to the aesthetic appeal of the car.
The interior of the Aveo is as graceful and elegant as the exterior. As soon as you enter the car, the first word you will utter is, "Wow!" And the interior or the car really does have plenty of wow factors. The seats are spacious with plenty of legroom for both front and rear passengers. The elegant and comfy dual tone beige interior is packed with advanced features like air conditioner, power windows, power mirror, remote boot, remote fuel filler, tilt steering, engine check lamp, low fuel warning lamp, height adjustable driver seat and rear armrest with cup holders. The stylish dashboard is packed with all the advanced instruments and music system expected of a Chevrolet.
In the Indian market, the Chevrolet Aveo was available with two petrol engine options. The 1.4L 1399 cc 16-valve 4-cylinder with Multi Point Fuel Injection (MPFI) delivers a maximum power of 94 Bhp at 6200 rpm and a maximum torque of 127 Nm at 3500 rpm. The larger 1.6L 1598 cc 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with MPFI delivers a maximum power of 102 Bhp at 5800 rpm and a maximum torque of 147 Nm at 4000 rpm. These high performance engines make the Aveo a powerful car that that can smoothly overcome any kind of road surface with ease. In India, the transmission system available was 5-speed manual although 4-speed automatic options is also available in the international market.
With such a powerful engine, it can only be expected that the Chevrolet Aveo delivers an impressive acceleration and performance. And indeed, it will not disappoint you. The car with the 1.4L 1399 cc engine can accelerate from a stationary position to 100 kmph in just under 13 seconds. It can achieve a top speed of 175 kmph. The car with the 1.6L 1598 cc engine can do even better. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in just 12.43 seconds and achieve a maximum speed of 185 kmph. Although there are other cars faster than the Aveo, you will still love to tear across the highway in this car.
If you think that the Chevrolet Aveo is must be fuel guzzler, then you'd think again. Its 4-cylinder 16-valve engine with Multi-point Fuel Injection (MPFI) system gives it a lot of power, but without sacrificing fuel efficiency. It consumes an average of 7.3 litres per 100 kilometres in manual transmission mode, which comes to about 13.69 kilometres per litre. The best it can do is 14.49 kmpl on the highway, which is quite impressive for a car of its class. You will enjoy driving this fine car on the highway without having to worry about your money going up in smoke.
Since you might want to push your car to its limit on a deserted highway, the Chevrolet Aveo is built with features that will never let your skid out of control. To achieve this, front wheels are equipped with large ventilated disc brakes and the rear wheels with self-adjustable drum brakes. The brakes are assisted by the anti-lock brake system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD). All of these advanced features make the Aveo an easy to handle car with good braking.
If you like listening to music while driving, then the Chevrolet Aveo has an advanced 6-speaker radio/MP3/CD audio system that you can connect to your pen drive, iPod or mobile phone using a jack or a Bluetooth®.
For many car owners, safety on the road is the primary concern and the makers of Chevrolet Aveo know it. This is why they have packed it with advanced safety features that can save your life and limbs even during high speed impacts. The tilt-able power steering with anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), Seat Belt Reminder, Door Ajar Warning system, central locking, child lock, anti-theft engine immobilizer and front disk brakes provide plenty of protection when you are on the road and from thieves when it is parked.
There are a number of reasons you should buy this car. It has an elegant and dignified appearance that is suitable for office and occasions like wedding and conferences. It has great fuel efficiency and its powerful engine lets you overcome any kind of road surface, including rough terrain.
