This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Chevrolet Aveo (11-15) review.

Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

The Aveo comes with ABS and front and side airbags as standard, plus remote central locking and an immobiliser for security.

Keep it in the city, and the Aveo is an easy car to live with. It’s compact and simple to park, with enough room in the boot for six or so shopping bags. The luggage capacity may be smaller than the Vauxhall Corsa and Hyundai Getz, but larger loads can be transported by folding down the rear seats. With a choice of three and five door versions, parents with small children will benefit from the easier access of an Aveo with rear doors.

Buyers on a restricted budget can save around £500 by opting for the less practical three-door. The rear flip-up aircraft-style tables on top-spec LT models are great for the kids’ magazines and drinks.
