Small cars are hip - that is the message of the Chevrolet Aveo RS Show Car, with which the GM subsidiary on the D etroit Motor Show die Announces the next generation of the small car Aveo for the US market, which will be launched in 2011.
Sporty look for the small car
To give the Chevrolet Aveo a sporty aura , the designers tailored dynamically drawn body components to the sheet metal of the five-door. The front apron stretches just above the asphalt and has large cooling air inlets in which honeycomb structure inserts exude racing spirit. The outer air inlets accommodate the fog lights, while the central duct has its counterpart in the radiator grille.
The exhibited wheel arches are filled to the brim with 19-inch alloy wheels and corresponding wide tires. Rising beads and lines in the flanks provide additional dynamism. The rear door handles are hidden in the window frame. A roof edge spoiler, taillights in a clear glass design and an apron with a grille insert and a centrally positioned double-pipe exhaust ensure sportiness at the rear.
A 140 PS turbo petrol engine provides propulsion
This is where the exhaust gases of a 140 hp 1.4 liter turbo gasoline engine escape from the Chevrolet Cruze was taken over. The six available gears are selected by hand.
The developers have created a sporty bridge to the interior with a black leather interior that has blue stitching to match the blue exterior paint. Bedded on sports seats, the driver grabs a leather sports steering wheel and looks at a round instrument plus an attached LCD display. Polished aluminum and applications in piano lacquer ensure value. The approval of young pilots is ensured by an audio system with a USB port. And those who think practically will be happy about the foldable rear seat and the storage space that is then available.
