The 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 gets a facelift and a refreshed interior, but the Aveo sedan rests on the styling updates it received in 2007. Snide remarks regarding the sedan’s styling are common, but reviewers are less critical of the new five-door.

“Chevrolet’s entry-level car is available as a homely-looking sedan or an altogether more attractive five-door wagon,” says Car and Driver. MyRide.com remarks, “the twin-grille look that we like on the Chevy Malibu and new Chevy Traverse looks forced and weird on this little car. The headlights sweep up into the bodywork uncomfortably, the fender vents behind the rear wheels are laughably corny, the hubcaps have fake plastic bolts, and the rest of the car is just bland and boring.” Automobile Magazine doesn't like the hatchback's styling, "where the only external changes lie with an ungainly front fascia and a pair of new taillight lenses.”

The interior of the 2009 Aveo5 receives at least some praise. Edmunds says "the interior of the Aveo5 was redesigned this year, which finally puts it in step with the sedan.” Automobile Magazine remarks “our LT test car sported a two-tone cabin complete with faux-wood accents, but the dash is the same-ol' Daewoo instrument panel first seen (overseas) in 2002.

MyRide.com says that the 2009 Aveo's “interior styling is a slightly different matter. The design is bland, but inoffensive and simple, unlike the busy interiors of some of the Aveo's competitors. Chevrolet has even attempted a bit of style and upscale feel, giving the 2009 Chevy Aveo a two-tone tan-and-black theme with fake wood trim.”

Conclusion

A redesign fashion-forwards the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5, but there's not much to be positive about.

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.
