GM Shows Off the 2012 Chevrolet Aveo

By Brendan Moore

GM has released official teaser photos of their 2012 Chevrolet Aveo to the automotive press, and thankfully, those photos look very much like the Aveo RS Concept seen at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show.

It looks as if the Aveo will finally have the firepower required to do battle with it’s rivals in the segment, like the Honda Fit, the forthcoming VW Polo, and, including the new, impressive Ford Fiesta. GM now has a contender in this class.

The top Aveo is expected to have the 138 hp turbocharged 1.4 liter Ecotec engine shown in the concept at Detroit. As seen in the photos, the interior is decidedly more upmarket. The offset analog tachometer and the digital speedometer are nice design touches.

We will give you more information in the future as it comes from GM.
