2015 Chevrolet Aveo first official details and images

General Motors is rolling out a new facelifted version of Aveo/Sonic exclusively for the Chinese market. Designed as per specifications supplied by GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center in Shanghai, with inputs from customers, the new Aveo borrows Chevy’s “Power of Ingenuity – Youth” design language seen earlier on the Trax urban SUV and incorporates various external and internal modifications.

These changes include a new headlight design flowing into the upper chrome horizontal split grille. A larger lower airdam is also evident along with trimmed fog lamps, sharper belt line and raised rear spoiler. The updated Aveo sits on class leading, wider, 16”, 8 spoke wheels wearing Bridgestone tyres contributing to enhanced grip and stability.

No engine updates are seen on the new Aveo which continues with its 1.4 and 1.6 DVVT engines mated to a 6 speed manual transmission. Prices of the new Chevrolet Aveo also remain the same, with prices ranging from 81,800 Yuan (approx Rs 7.71 lakhs or $13,009) and 114,800 Yuan (approx Rs 10.82 lakhs or $18,379).

Manufactured in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture, Chevrolet Aveo has been the company’s best-selling compact car with a notable presence in upcoming markets and second and third tier cities. To appeal to a younger and sportier section of buyers is why GM has added some sporty accents to the new Aveo.

GM has no plans to introduce the Chevrolet Aveo in India as of now.
