Chevy Aveo (Chinese market)

The Chinese market is an increasingly vital one for global automakers, including General Motors. The Detroit-based industrial giant claims to offer “the broadest lineup of vehicles and brands among automakers in China,” including vehicles sold under the Buick, Cadillac, Opel, Baojun, Jiefang, Wuling and, of course, Chevrolet brands.

In fact, GM is rolling out a new Aveo specifically for the Chinese market, and here it is. Designed with input from GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center in Shanghai, the revised Aveo follows the Trax in adopting Chevy’s “Power of Ingenuity – Youth” design language. It features the brand’s horizontally split grille, with the updated Bowtie emblem from the latest Cruze. The revised front end also features new headlamps and chrome-trimmed fog lamps, with a sharper belt line leading to a subtly raised rear spoiler, butterfly taillamps and a wider-looking stance with 16-inch wheels wearing Bridgestone rubber at each corner.

An unspecified Ecotec DVVT engine carries over with a six-speed automatic transmission, and the model will go on sale across China starting next month.
