Chevrolet Aveo hatchback (2008-2010): owner reviews

"The Aveo is roomy inside and fun to drive around town, but it's a handful at speed and it looks dated compared to newer, better rivals."

Great car although engine quite sluggish. Middle seat although small transmission tunnel it's a small fath to get into. Boot is on the small side too.

You get what you pay for, a budget car that's cheap to run and to buy, it's average in many ways, but excellent on running costs.
