side curtain airbags...aren't available

Anti-lock brakes are optional

Acceptable front impact protection, Marginal side impact protection

TheCarConnection.com finds that the 2008 Chevrolet Aveo does not get high marks for safety.

The Detroit News cuts to the chase with this Chevrolet; 2008’s Aveo will be judged, they say, on "what kind of safety equipment you get." The list of safety equipment that is not standard--or even available--on the Aveo is telling.

Edmunds reports that the base Chevrolet Aveo model does come with front seat side airbags as standard equipment, but not side curtain airbags. Anti-lock brakes, standard now on virtually all other vehicles, are optional on the Aveo, while four-wheel disc brakes aren't even available, according to Cars.com. Stability control isn’t offered, either.

The Chevrolet 2008 Aveo received a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in head-on impacts--but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Aveo significantly lower scores. While the vehicle was rated "acceptable" when it came to offset frontal impacts, side impacts were rated as "marginal."

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
