While there had been speculation that the ungainly looking Chevy Viva from Brazil would be the Aveo replacement, new spy shots show that this is a completely different car, although it will likely share some mechanical bits with the Aveo.
At the preview last summer, GM design manager Bob Boniface confirmed that the Aveo name would be retained because, in spite of the baggage the current model carries, it does have recognition and launching a new name would be too expensive. Of course that was three months ago and the Aveo is still a year or so away from launch so things could change. Whatever it's called, it's certainly a better looking car than the current model, with a wider stance that looks less tippy. Thanks to Jason for the tip!
