January bound Chevrolet Aveo prices announced 1

The Chevrolet Aveo, to be released in January, has had its price guide released. The Aveo 1.2 LS will cost £9,995 with the LT costing £10,995. The most expensive variant will be the LTZ, which will cost around £12,195.

The car is expected to challenge the Suzuki Swift in the Supermini market.

Chevrolet hope to challenge them by providing a hugely economical variant with the diesel option. The 1.3 litre VDCi eco version will emit just 95g/km and achieve a huge 78.5 MPG. Start/Stop technology will be installed as standard in cars. This will help to assist with the car’s brilliant green credentials.

Mark Terry, Chevrolet’s UK Managing Director has claimed the car will be one of the best values for money vehicles around. It aims to steer away from typical thoughts of family cars and deliver personality with the Chevrolet Aveo. He said that “Much like we did with the Spark, we wanted to take the image of small cars away from being cute and cuddly. Instead, we’ve delivered a car that’s striking, bold and has attitude. It draws on our iconic models, such as the Camaro and Corvette, for its styling influence, with cues such as the distinctive round headlamps and dual-cockpit interior giving it a lot more personality than you’d normally find in this sector of the market.”

The basic Chevrolet Aveo LS will come with a sporty rear spoiler and remote central locking. There is also a CD player, heated door mirrors with electric front windows too.

The Chevrolet LT trim will come with 15 inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, controls for the audio system through the steering wheel and a fully adjustable driver’s seat. The Driver Information Centre is quite a useful feature within the car. The chrome gear knob as well as the Bluetooth connectivity ability within adds to the car’s great features.

Chevrolet LTZ variant will add a host of great equipment including rear parking sensors, front fog lights, automatic headlights and a nicely designed leather steering wheel.
