2011 Chevrolet Aveo Sedan leak

With the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo, General Motors is taking its small car destiny in its own hands, bringing its Honda Fit fighter home to America--at least in terms of design and production. Unlike the first-generation model, which was designed largely in South Korea, the new Aveo will be mostly homegrown, and if last month’s striking Aveo RS Concept is anything to go by it looks like GM has a definite winner on its hands.

We already have a fairly good idea as to how the new Aveo will look thanks to the Aveo RS Concept but these shots released by Bob Lutz during a presentation at the Motor Press Guild in California today puts an end to all the guess work.

As expected the production version loses the aggressive bodykit and 19 inch wheels of the concept but thankfully the general look of the car remains the same. The addition of the four-door sedan also means the lineup will stand a better chance competing against the likes of the Ford Fiesta and the hatchback-only Honda Fit. The interior gets Chevrolet’s new family styling, which sees it share much of its design with cars like the Cruze and Equinox.

Underneath the new sheet metal is GM’s Global Gamma II chassis, which is capable of spawning the pictured sedan, plus three- and five-door body styles. Powertrains will include both naturally-aspirated and turbocharged versions of GM’s new 1.4-liter Ecotec.

The 2011 Chevrolet Aveo is expected to go on sale in January 2011, with production taking place at GM's Orion Township plant in Michigan. Follow the jump to see more of the shots.

  2. It may look good, but from the picture you can already see that they are cutting corners. The fuel filler door is non-locking. If you can get a locking one in a Toyota Yaris, why can't you have one in this vehicle? Oh, we can't forget that this is the same GM as always. You can't even get one in the high buck Caddy CTS, but you can in Toyota Corolla, VW Jetta, VW Golf, VW Beetle, VW Passat, Toyota Camry, Mazda 3, Honda Accord, and Honda Civic.

  3. Uhh Mr D, a high quality car and a dood design is not determined by whether it has a locking fuel filler door. Give me a break. This car looks really good. Much MUCH more attractive then anything from Japan.
