2012 Chevrolet Aveo

By luanpa in | September 12, 2010 | (1) Comment

General Motors is hoping to make a fresh start in the small car segment next year with an all-new made-in-America 20120Chevrolet Aveo.Unlike the current South Korean-built Aveo, the 2012 model will be produced at GM’s Lake Orion, MI assembly plant north of Detroit. It goes on sale in summer 2011.

The 2012 Chevrolet Aveo will be available in both five-door hatchback and four-door sedan body styles just like the current model. Buyers in Europe will have the choice of four gasoline engines ranging from 1.2 to 1.6-liters with maximum output of 115 horsepower along with two 1.3-liter diesels.

GM has not announced which engines will be installed in Michigan built Aveos but the 1.6-liter is almost a sure thing allowing it to compete with the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit. Since the 100 hp 1.4-liter will be built in the nearby Flint engine plant for use in the Chevrolet Volt, it may also be offered as the base engine.

A production version of the Aveo RS with the same 138 hp turbocharged 1.4-liter found in the larger is also a distinct possibility after the base models launch.
