What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Kalos has a comfortable ride, and there's plenty of room for four people

Against It's dull to drive, cabin plastics feel low-rent and has a low Euro NCAP crash rating. Engines are noisy

Verdict It's a reasonable car, but others provide more for similar money

Go for… 1.4 16v SX

Avoid… 1.4 8v

Chevrolet Kalos Hatchback
  • 1. Residual values aren't as bad as you might expect, so it's not as cheap as you might think
  • 2. It's reasonably spacious and pretty well equipped towards the top of the range
  • 3. Some owners report that the front wheels are easily knocked out of alignment
  • 4. One or two clutch faults have been reported
  • 5. Engines can be breathless and raucous
