Four-door cars with a large trunk are very popular in Southern and Central Europe, which is why the Chevrolet Aveo is so well-liked there. The four-door sedan is ideal for young families because the generous exterior dimensions are also reflected in the spacious interior. The Aveo's trunk offers plenty of room for luggage, boasting a volume of 400 liters. By folding the split rear seat backrest, this volume can be increased considerably.
The Aveo Sedan offers the upgraded engines introduced with the five-door hatchback version. A choice of two gasoline engines is available: A 1.2-liter unit with 84 hp and the 1.4-liter unit, which develops 101 hp. Fuel consumption of both versions has been reduced significantly. An unusual option for this class of vehicle is the combination of the larger engine with a four-speed automatic transmission.
The modern chassis design of the Chevrolet sedan with McPherson struts at the front and torsion beam suspension at the rear is, in combination with the wide track, a guarantee for high comfort and active safety. The variable rack-and-pinion power steering provides for agile handling, while the four-channel ABS ensures safe braking.
