2008 Chevrolet Aveo LT Review
Let’s face it, while the Chevrolet Aveo is not the sexiest thing to look at, in these ecology-minded days, you’ll want to have the option of going around town without emptying your grandkids’ oil reserves any faster than necessary. Slip into this Korean-built econobox and notice the great distribution of space. The cabin is actually very well laid out and should render all city-related running around easy. With a horsepower count maxing at 103, don’t expect to earn any points at your next local racing event. Load up with some 87 octane and mill about without getting in trouble with the law—that’s a plus, and your insurance premium will be reasonable. The sedan configuration will achieve that purpose. However, if you want a more practical approach with the General, you might consider the European-designed Saturn Astra with a hatch and 30 more horsepower for only a few thousand dollars more.
