We first saw the concept Chevrolet Aveo RS at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show and have since caught the next-gen Aveo in action, but that was in its heavily disguised form. Now we got our hands on this new image of the upcoming Aveo RS, cleverly Photoshopped by the folks over at Aveo Forum. In it's unmasked form, the Aveo RS looks significantly sportier than any other Aveo on the road today.
On Wednesday night, Chevrolet held a media preview in Motown to discuss and show off some of what will be coming up at the Detroit Auto Show next month. Unfortunately, we were not allowed take any photos or video at the event, although General Motors officials did say we could write about anything that was discussed.
Back in August, in the wake of General Motors emergence from its pre-packaged bankruptcy, the automaker gave select members of the media a preview of several upcoming products. Among those was the next Chevrolet Aveo, which will take up the B-segment mantle to battle the new Ford Fiesta, Mazda2, Honda Fit, and Toyota Yaris. Unlike the current Aveo, which is built in South Korea by Daewoo, the new model will be built at the Orion, MI assembly plant north of Detroit.
