Expert Quotes:

“the Aveo5 only makes sense as stripped down, no-nonsense transportation”
Automobile Magazine

the Aveo gets a revised driver-information center”
Car and Driver

“the atrociously orange wood trim shatters any illusion of civility quickly”
MyRide.com

There are three trim levels available for both the sedan and hatchback versions of the Aveo. The price for either model with the trim level is the same, leaving the purchasing decision based solely on body type.

Automobile Magazine says, “The Aveo5 only makes sense as stripped down, no-nonsense transportation. Whereas there's a certain quirky logic to paying $18,000 for a loaded Fit, it's almost impossible to see why someone would pay more than $14,000 for an Aveo.”

For 2009, “The Aveo gets a revised driver-information center that now shows outside temperature and fuel economy. GM’s OnStar system is now standard, along with an auxiliary input jack on all radios. XM satellite radio is now available, as are new five-spoke aluminum 15-inch wheels,” reports Car and Driver.

The base LS includes standard side airbags, variable intermittent windshield wipers, a tilting steering wheel, and a stereo with an audio input jack. To get air conditioning requires a $1,000 price increase and upgrading to the 1LT model. Options for this model include power accessories and anti-lock brakes. Says Car and Driver, “Choosing an auto-equipped 1LT makes the most sense if you plan to use the Aveo as a no-frills commuter vehicle, providing, as it does, an acceptable level of comfort.”

For about $16,000 you can get the 2LT model. “The 2LT comes with the 1LT's optional equipment and adds 15-inch wheels, front foglamps, a trip computer, upgraded cloth upholstery, heated power sideview mirrors and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls,” reports Edmunds.

“Our test car had air conditioning, a halfway-decent audio system, power windows and door locks, but manual outside mirrors. However, the tons of hard plastic, occasional shiny bit, odd contrasts between black and tan and the atrociously orange wood trim shatters any illusion of civility quickly,” remarks MyRide.com.

Conclusion

The 2009 Chevy Aveo is built to serve basic transportation needs, and it’s best to leave it that way by not adding expensive upgrades.

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.
