Priced at less than $11,000, including destination, for the SVM hatchback model, the Aveo5 is one of the cheapest vehicles available in the U.S., although base models of the Rio, Accent, and Yaris are in the same price range.
The Rio and Accent, which are mechanically related to each other don't feel quite as roomy, are much more fun to drive than the Aveo, although they have a bit more engine noise from inside the cabin.
The Fit and Yaris feel peppy, light, and nimble on the road, though both can also be noisy inside.
The Yaris hatchback is quite tight on passenger space, while the Fit is cavernous and has an innovative Magic Seat arrangement, along with best-in-class safety.
Of them all, the Versa drives most like a larger vehicle, in a positive sense, with a smooth, settled ride on the highway, as well as a roomy interior.
Nearly all of these vehicles get better fuel economy than the 2008 Chevrolet Aveo.
