2011 Chevrolet Aveo Overview
Those who love affordability, whether it’s on the sticker or at the pump, will love the inexpensive and ultra-efficient 2011 Chevrolet Aveo subcompact.
Available in four-door sedan or five- door hatchback (Aveo5) body types, the 2011 Aveo has three trims to choose from. Each trim comes with a 108-horsepower, 1.6-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine. All trims are mated to either a four-speed automatic, or five-speed manual transmission with overdrive and front wheel drive. The Chevy Aveo is one of the most fuel-efficient cars on the road with 25-27 mpg in the city and 34-35 mpg on the highway, and is also eco-friendly by emitting less than seven metric tons of carbon dioxide. That’s on par with the Toyota Yaris, Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio.
If you prefer the hatchback Aveo5, you’ll enjoy a different, rectangular grille, which is hard to ignore. 14-inch wheels come standard, while 15-inch wheels are optional. The 2011 Aveo5 hatchback seats up to five people and features the 1.6-liter Ecotec engine, which is mated to a standard five-speed manual, or optional four-speed automatic transmission.
The base LS trim on the 2011 Aveo includes front bucket seats, a radio with an MP3 jack and the OnStar communication system with six months of Directions and Connections service. Upgrade to the 1LT trim and a CD player and air conditioning come standard. At the top of the model line, the 2LT, includes all of the above and a host of power features, including power windows, door locks and heated mirrors. XM Satellite Radio, fog lamps, cruise control and a remote keyless entry system also come standard in the premium trim. Imitation wood trim, power moonroof and faux leather seating are all optional. Although the Aveo is a tiny four-door subcompact, it is surprisingly spacious offering above average leg room and 12.4 cubic feet of cargo space.
The 2011 Aveo is one of the few subcompact vehicles with a five star NHTSA safety rating for the driver's side (four stars for the passenger's side). A wealth of safety features is included on this low-cost gem. Each trim comes with front impact airbags for both passenger and driver and an anti-roll bar. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are optional.
