You tend to sit on the Aveo rather than in it, which discourages enthusiastic driving, and with no reach adjustment on the steering column it's not easy to get a good driving position. Dated-looking switchgear that lacks the ergonomic precision of the interiors of more recent models also disappoints.
Chevrolet AVEO Hatchback space & practicality
The Aveo is less than four metres long yet provides impressive space for four adults, and even the three-door isn't too difficult to get into the back of. Space in the cabin comes at the expense of storage in the boot, however, but you can fold down some or all of the split rear seat to compensate.
Chevrolet AVEO Hatchback equipment
There are three trim levels. The single three-door car comes only with base-level trim while the 1.4 engine is only available in top-spec cars. What you get is pretty much what you'd expect in one of the cheaper superminis, though air conditioning is fitted to all but the most basic versions.
