2008 Aveo Overview

The Chevrolet Aveo is Chevy's smallest, least expensive car.Aside from its price, what's most attractive about Aveo is its surprisingly handsome interior, at least on the up-level LT.Its 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine is rated at 103 horsepower, which is adequate.Transmission choices are either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic.Aveo is available as a four-door sedan or a versatile five-door hatchback called the Aveo5.

The Aveo was extensively updated for 2007 to better compete with a wave of new subcompacts, namely the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris, Nissan Versa, and Hyundai Accent.Aveo's basic architecture and mechanical underpinnings date to 2004, and there are no significant changes for 2008.

Aveo was designed to offer sensible, day-to-day transportation.Its ride is tuned more for comfort than sporty driving, and this is where it differs from the frisky Honda Fit.But many of us spend more time commuting through heavy, stop-and-go traffic than challenging the Nurburgring circuit.

Aveo is EPA-estimated to deliver 24 mpg in the city and 34 on the highway.That's compares well with the Hyundai Accent (27/32 mpg), Nissan Versa (26/31).The Honda Fit (28/34) and Toyota Yaris (29/36) are more efficient but when it comes to purchase price look for better deals on the Aveo.

We found the Aveo to be an enjoyable car to spend time with, particularly the LT with its nice cloth upholstery.The climate and audio controls are easy to use and the driver's seat adjusts for height and it drives well.We like the Aveo5 five-door hatchback for its ability to haul stuff.
