The Chevy Aveo sedan is hitting dealer lots as we speak, so the surfacing of these spy shots showing the five-door hatchback version is well timed. Cheers and Gears pulls what details they can from the heavily camouflaged vehicle, which shows some interesting design details. Look closely and you'll see the one de rigueur design detail showing up on all the fashionable 2007 models: side air vents! Whether they are a portent of a performance version or will be used across the entire lineup of Aveo hatchbacks is not known, but they certainly look like production pieces to us. Stare long and hard at the front and you'll also see the pointed bottom of the new giant grille that was first previewed on recent Malibu spy shots, as well. The rear of the car shows large taillamps with round reverse lights reminiscent of the HHR. From these spy shots, it appears that the Aveo hatchback is going to get divergent styling from its four-door sibling, as well as a sub-$10,000 base price to keep it one of this market's least expensive vehicles. Expect the Chevy Aveo five-door hatchback to debut sometime next year as a 2007 model.

      This looks like a minor remake of the existing Aveo5 à la American Focus. The doors and side panels seem to be identical but they've added an Accent-like faux air intake to the side. Too bad ! All their competitors are already technologily ahead of the Aveo and by the time a true remake is offered this car will be a farce.

      Where I live (Québec), the B and C segments are the most important segments and they are growing segments elsewhere in NA. Cars like this are going to wind-up with left-over Cavaliers on car rental lots in various airports ...

      Will American car makers learn to listen to customers instead of imposing their ideas ... ?
