Car and Driver

Adequacy is the recurring theme with the 2009 Chevy Aveo. Lackluster crash-test results are met with some—but not all—the expected safety features.

“In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests, the Aveo sedan earned a five-star rating (the best possible) for its protection of the driver and four stars for the passenger in frontal impacts, and four stars for the driver side and three stars for the passenger side in side impacts,” says Edmunds. Furthermore, “The hatchback did slightly better, garnering five stars for the passenger in the frontal-impact test and four stars for both sides in the rear-impact test. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety frontal-offset crash tests, the Aveo received a score of ‘Acceptable,’ or one spot from the top.”

Car and Driver reports, “The Aveo gets dual front side airbags in addition to the standard front bags, but curtain airbags aren’t offered—a glaring oversight. There is no traction or stability control on offer.” “Antilock brakes are optional on the LT models, but only on those with the automatic transmission,” states ConsumerGuide.

The Aveo comes standard with GM’s OnStar system, which other cars in this class cannot boast.

Conclusion

The 2009 Chevrolet Aveo is barely adequate here—especially considering it's one of the smaller, lighter vehicles on the road.

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.
