General Motors is definitely focused on becoming a serious contender in the small car market segment. The production model of the new 2011 Chevrolet Aveo is one of four models that will premiere at the Paris Motor Show next month in addition to the Orlando MPV and Cruze hatchback.
Reminiscent of the recently introduced Spark in Europe, the new Aveo is designed to appeal to younger customers with its sporty hot-hatch look. A four-door sedan variant will launch in Europe alongside the hatch next summer. Both hatch and sedan are practical small cars providing ample interior space.
Wayne Brannon, president and managing director of Chevrolet Europe says: “It’s just such an exciting time to be at Chevrolet; in Aveo we have a car which is ready to compete against the best in the small-car segment.”
