Spy Shots: 2011 Chevrolet Aveo Hatchback

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.

I'm really liking the 13" wheels. The aggressiveness of the concept really shines through.

What a pathetic, vile, reprehensible, atrocious, horrible, appalling, loathsome, ghastly, heinous, lurid, revolting, repugnant, wretched, contemptible car.

The wheels are closer to 16" I would guess. 16"s looks small anymore.

With the RS Cobalt offering 19's I would say this is not the RS package on this car. We will see that later.

Not a car I would buy but as good or better looking than some others in this class. Either way it is much better than the last Aveo.

That paint scheme is really aggro...hopefully it will be an option (white w/ black spots).

They should have made the badges Swastikas, the tires out of baby seal skins, the headlights out of baby elephant eyes, the seats out of white tiger skins, and named it the Hitler-Bush Napoleon Brougham KKK LS Landau Obama Supreme.

"Hitler-Bush Napoleon Brougham KKK LS Landau Obama Supreme" - the nameplate would stretch the ENTIRE WIDTH of the hatch lid! Brilliant!

There are many cars out there that anymore should have left the Camo on vs taking it off.

The Spark will come standard with a Flux Capacitor so it can travel back and time and be responsible for the first holocaust too.

As long as good and evil continue to balance themselves out...

I will venture to say that the people defending these vehicles will not be caught dead in one.
