• Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    A break from the mold. The car isn't a common sight compared to Ford Ka's and Hyundai i10's. The Chevrolet badge also conjours up images of sporty American muscle cars, and may trick people into thinking it's not actually a cheap Korean car.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They think it's a nifty little car, although some people don't quite get the quirky styling, especially the speedometer designed to look like a motorcycles.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes because it is very reliable and easy to live with. Very low running costs and good value for money.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Chevrolet Aveo.

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    Steering is very light and accurate, great for driving round town. Engine is eager at traffic lights. Plenty of reassuring grip on fast corners. Bit of body roll on tight bends but well controlled. Although engine can be loud at higher revs and cabin not as well insulated from wind noise. Comfortable seats and soft suspension.

    What's it like to park?

    Very easy. Good all round visibility and light steering. My model also has rear parking sensors.
