2011 Chevrolet Aveo – Click above for high-res image gallery

According to the blokes over at Autocar, Chevrolet's Korean arm is furiously working on turning the latest Aveo into a five-door, five-passenger crossover. This CUV version of Chevy's subcompact, which just recently began production in Seoul, South Korea with sales slated for early 2011, will reportedly sport a stretched version of the platform and will be offered in both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive flavors.

Upscale interior bits and pieces are apparently being borrowed from the European Opel parts bin, which should mean good things for the Gamma II-based cute 'ute. Other higher-end specs include a next-gen digital display grafted into the dash that is apparently going to filter across the rest of the Chevrolet lineup.

In related news, the British magazine is also reporting that the four-door sedan version of the new Aveo is likely to be shown off at the next Detroit Auto Show in January. Will a crossover join in on the Aveo's time in the spotlight? We'll be there in DSLRs in tow either way.

      I wonder what it'll look like. I'm guessing a 7/8 scale Equinox?

      Or they could just bring over the Cruze hatchback that they arent planning on bringing here.

        Is that anything like an Astra?

      I guess this won't be sold in America.
      • 4 Years Ago
      How about bringing the hatchback over to the States first?

      I know it is one size up from the original concept but I would be intrigued.

        Actually one thing is that in Australia Holden is already selling the Chevrolet Spark (Beat) as the Barina Spark. And the Barina was the Aveo. And apparently the Aveo does share the platform with the Spark as well (GM Gamma), even though the Spark is smaller.

        So they are all inter-related.

      Design by committee, never pushing the enveloppe, ever.

      Similar to Fiesta based crossover ?

      I think this will be like Granite or Vibe ( i still miss you vibe, i don't find anything beautiful as you.)

      Vibe is still a missing car, they just need to use same machinery, put cruze 1.4 ltr turbo inside it and If needed put a chevy logo ( l still like the Pontiac one over chevy ).

      But the real question is... will it be available with a Buick badge?

      How timely your article is on the Aveo CUV. I'm in the market for a small CUV with about 8" of ground clearance & high MPG. How about some more clues. Size,weight,powertrain & if it's worth waiting for? About time GM!

      Why, God, WHYYYYYYYY???!!????


      Lotus Elite or anything that even looks like it, is unattainable, and real people get a %^#$%^&*-ing Aveo and an Aveo Crossover, or a Hybrid Honda Fit, or other tin cans that nobody with any self respect should let themselves down to spend hard earned money on.

      Some days I wonder why I still like any cars, anymore.
