Fuel-efficient Chevrolet Aveo is an uncompromising performer, with a great design, a smooth, safe driving experience and amenities that are rare in the small-car segment.

For 2009, a more powerful engine, the 1.6L Gen 3 Ecotec, is standard in all models, delivering more usable horsepower with the same great fuel efficiency.

The Aveo sedan offers smart-looking styling and roomy interior characterized by thoughtful details and refinement. It also delivers confident, dynamic driving experiences and generous features usually seen in more expensive cars, challenging the expectations of what an entry-level car can deliver.

In addition to the more powerful engine and the ’09 Aveo lineup includes the following new or revised features: OnStar standard on all models; XM Satellite Radio available; Revised driver information center with outside temperature display and fuel economy/driving range function; New 15-inch aluminum alloy five-spoke wheels; New 15-inch steel wheel with bolt-on wheel cover; Three new exterior colors: Black Granite Metallic, Blue Moon and Tahiti Green; New Charcoal leatherette seating; and Available leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob (included with leatherette seating).

The Aveo sedan is high in style and progressive in attitude. It features crisp, sculpted lines and a wide, confident stance. The design skillfully creates the illusion of a larger car.

Base model estimated mpg: 27/34

Estimated starting price: $14,255
