Stuff You Didn't Know About the Chevrolet Aveo
- In 2001, the Korean carmaker, Daewoo, was purchased by GM. The reason the company bought it was because of the Chevrolet Aveo, which was a subcompact car that debuted in Chicago. Originally, Daewoo manufactured the Aveo and was later developed by GM when the company bought it. It was sold in the American market in 2004.
- In Korea, the Aveo was originally called the Daewoo Kalos. When GM assumed the company, it was renamed the Chevrolet Aveo.
- In 2004, the Chevrolet Aveo was the most affordable vehicle that anyone could buy in the United States of America. But even though it was not that expensive, the interior was still very comfortable for the passengers and the driver riding the sedan. The Chevrolet Aveo parts functioned well and that made this automobile very easy to handle. It was also built with a 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine that delivered 105 horsepower plus 107 pound-feet of torque. The Aveo was definitely a vehicle that would not disappoint.
- Aveo is a Latin word for desire. It was probably named that way because it's a compact vehicle that every car owner would desire to have.
- The Aveo was first sold in the US in 2004 in a four-door sedan form. Later in 2007, the Aveo5 hatchback was introduced.
- In January 2011, the second generation Chevrolet Aveo was launched and was sold globally, which included countries in the Middle East, Japan, Mexico, Israel, and South Africa. It was called the Chevrolet Sonic. It was also introduced in Australasia, but it was called the Holden Barina.
- Daewoo basically designed the exterior and interior look of the Aveo and exported it under different names, such as the Holden Barina and Suzuki Swift. The only contribution that Chevrolet had done to the Aveo was by putting the company's bow-tie badge.
- The 2004 model didn't exactly please the market; it was only in 2007 when the Aveo was redecorated, which made the market get more interested. It was more impressive as it was built with perforated leatherette upholstery, authentic wood trim, as well as chrome-ringed vents and switchgear.
