The Chevrolet Aveo RS concept was debuted at the 2010 Detroit auto show as the next-generation Aveo.

The Aveo RS concept was designed to have a “European-inspired hot hatch look” that’s meant to “appeal to young enthusiasts” and gives some hints about what the the next-generation 2011 Aveo will look like. The concept is longer, wider, and has more interior space than the current model.

The Chevrolet Aveo RS is mostly a styling exercise; At the same time Vauxhall/Opel is looking for a new small car to offer underneath the current Corsa. This might be based on an existing GM Daewoo/Chevy platform or not and will be between two and four years off depending on which way that decision goes.Chevrolet released relatively little information on the car’s performance or fuel efficiency. But the 2011 Fiesta’s 30/40 mpg rating is the one it has to meet or beat to stay competitive.

The interior  looks ready to roll off the assembly line. The majority of the swoopy dashboard, a stark contrast from the bland form in today’s Aveos is cribbed from other small Chevys, including the Spark and Cruze. The LCD display may appear to be a fanciful touch, but designers lobbied for it to appear in the production version of the Spark, so it may also carry into the Aveo.

GM wanted to enlarge the car, and move it to the next-generation Gamma platform, which will ultimately be shared with the next Opel Corsa. So the Chevrolet Aveo RS concept is powered by a turbocharged 1.4L engine that delivers 138hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. with power delivered to the road through the giant 19-inch, five-spoke wheels and tires. Large brake calipers, painted the same blue as the exterior, are visible through the wheels.
