Expert Quotes:

“the design is bland, but inoffensive”

“available as a homely-looking sedan or an altogether more attractive five-door wagon”
Car and Driver

ungainly front fascia
Automobile Magazine

Offered in three variants—base, LS, and LT—the Aveo5 wears the guise introduced in 2009, whereas the four-door sedan was revised back in 2008. GM Daewoo in South Korea builds the Aveos, all of which carry Chevrolet’s new signature front-end styling, with a Chevy bow framed by a larger grille. Larger tail lamps and an available rear spoiler dress up the basic model. The side vent in the Aveo5 (absent from the sedan) is ludicrous.

“Chevrolet’s entry-level car is available as a homely-looking sedan or an altogether more attractive five-door wagon,” notes 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 is not the biggest fan of 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 hatchback model is appreciated somewhat. MyRide.com reports that the Aveo's interior styling 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 2010 Chevy Aveo a two-tone tan-and-black theme with fake wood trim.” 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.”

Conclusion

Whether as a sedan or Aveo5 hatchback, the 2010 Chevrolet Aveo feels bland and homely with some details that are almost unanimously judged as cheesy.

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.
