General Motors is currently working on a replacement for the aging Chevrolet Aveo but the automaker’s Brazilian division has just released a new compact car that may provide a hint as to what to expect for the North American model due sometime next year. Called the Agile, the latest compact hatch will go on sale in the Brazilian market this October.

According to the press released accompanied with today’s reveal, the Agile has a new global visual identity for the Chevrolet brand, highlighted by two air inlets clearly marked on the front, converging to the golden bow-tie logo.

Development work was completed fully by the Center for Development of Vehicles in Brazil, located in Sao Caetano do Sul and Field Evidence of Cruz Alta (CPCA), Sao Paulo. However, other markets that will see the new compact include Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, with production taking place in just Argentina and Brazil.

As for the North American Aveo-replacement due next year, All Small Cars reports that styling will be influenced by the smaller 2011 Chevrolet Spark and compete with the upcoming 2011 Ford Fiesta.

  1. First impression: I see way more than a little Scion xD here. Chevy needs more expressive styling in an Aveo replacement, and it needs to go beyond the bar and bowtie in front.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Nice little hatch, although styling only incrementally better than Corsa.
    But it's funny that you translate CPCA (Campo de Prova Cruz Alta) as "Field Evidence."
    Unless this is a CSI episode, I believe the translation is Cruz Alta Proving Grounds.

  3. What do you mean "converging to the golden bow-tie logo."? I suppose it means coming together, but that is an unusual way to describe that "grille".

  4. Guys, this is NOT the Aveo replacement for North America, as discussed in this article http://bit.ly/PY7ph
    But it is built on the Gamma 2 platform - the same platform that will be used for the North American Chevy Aveo replacement. Doing that just kills the entire point of platform sharing, doesn't it?
