For the kind of car it is, Aveo prices look rather high, and resale values are nothing to write home about. The engines give decent fuel returns, though, but perhaps the biggest selling point is Chevrolet's Five Year Promise, which comes on every one of the company's cars and includes five years' warranty, servicing, roadside assistance and MoT test cover.
Chevrolet AVEO Hatchback quality & reliability
Chevy has given the trim in the Aveo a bright look and feel, just about meeting expectations rather than falling short of them. Reliability has proved to be pretty good, with no major problem areas reported.
Chevrolet AVEO Hatchback safety & security
All Aveos have four airbags and anti-lock brakes, which is just about the minimum legal and moral requirement these days, but in a sub-£8000 car you'll look in vain for the latest accident avoidance features. It's the same with security: you get the mandatory immobiliser, but little else.
