Chevrolet Aveo 5dr 1.4 Review: 5 for value

The standard features are pretty decent for this car at this price point, even by the modest standards of the compact class. So, if you’re looking for stability-control systems and curtain airbags as standard features, you’ll unfortunately have to look elsewhere and at the same time, also stretch your budget.

Anti-lock brakes, together with dual-stage driver’s airbag come standard for the Aveo5. And for added safety, over 40% of the Aveo5’s cabin consists of high-strength steel. The B-pillar, in particular, has been strengthened three times more than its predecessor for maximum protection to keep occupants safe in case of a side-impact crash.

he Aveo5 has a decent engine, good road manners, a cleverly designed interior full of functional equipment and a refreshing exterior. It’s not the sexiest looker nor is it the strongest straight-line performer, but what it does provide is good value for money.

Available at $49,188 for the manual and $52,188 for the automatic, it poses a rather big threat to its Japanese competitors - especially with its respectable fuel economy ratings, cargo-carrying versatility and new exterior. The conservative driving, compact size, attractive colour choices, as well as the competitive pricing, inevitably makes this very appropriate as a first car.

Well, if it doesn’t grab the attention of young drivers on a budget, we don’t know what else will.
