The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Chevrolet Aveo is vastly improved from first glance; we'll reserve final judgement until road-test cars are made available. The 2011 Kia Rio has a perky driving feel and roomy interior, though the lack of refinement, low safety scores, and dated styling limit its appeal.
