2011 Chevy Aveo Review


Pending a complete redesign scheduled for 2012, the Aveo returns for 2011 with few changes. Notable among them are a new introductory OnStar package that includes six months of GM’s Directions and Connections plan with turn-by-turn navigation. Cosmic Silver is now offered in place of Silver Ice Metallic, and cabin air filtration has been added to the LT models.

2011 Chevy Aveo

Assembled by General Motors-Daewoo in Korea, the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo appeals to drivers on a budget. MSRP starts at under $12,000, which makes it one of the lowest-priced passenger cars available in the U.S. By utilizing ‘tall car’ design aesthetics, both the hatchback and sedan are roomy inside and feature a comfortable ride relative to other small cars. Mileage for 2011 is estimated at 27 city and 34 highway.

The 2011 Chevy Aveo is offered in two body styles: a 4-door sedan and a 5-door hatchback known as the Aveo5. Both styles are available in three trims: the base LS, the mid-range LT1 and well-equipped LT2. Just as in 2010, the 2011 Aveo comes with a 1.6L Ecotec DOHC 4-cylinder engine with variable valve timing, which helps it make 108 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a standard 5-speed manual gearbox, while an optional 4-speed automatic transmission is available on the LT trims. The automatic transmission features a hold-control mode to hold a higher gear and to aid traction on slippery roads. All trims are front wheel drive. All Aveos utilize a MacPherson strut front suspension with coil beams and a stabilizer bar and a compound-link independent suspension with torsion beam and gas-charged shocks in the rear. On the base LS trim, standard features include a tilt steering wheel, rear defogger, air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo with auxiliary input.

The LT1 trim comes standard front and rear floor mats, cabin filtration, heated outside mirrors, and a 6-speaker CD/MP3 sound system. The LT2 gets cruise control, alarm, keyless entry, power doors and windows, power heated mirrors, fog lamps and performance tires. Available options on all trims include anti-lock brakes, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel controls, an anti-theft system, woodgrain interior trim, trip computer, aluminum wheels, vinyl seats, sunroof and wireless cell phone integration. Standard safety features include front driver and passenger airbags with dual-stage deployment, and seat-mounted side airbags for front row occupants.
