Default 2008 Chevy Aveo - The new face?

Aveo shall start looking more European now. Bit of old Kalos, a shade of new Fabia, a bit of SX4, well a bit of audi/VW. But not bad (and not so good either).



The (car's) rear is very well executed. Great proportions. Brilliant.

Shown @Geneva Motorshow. Take a look.

BH.

Looks good from front, but the question is "if" and "when" will it be launched here.

Whose back

That asides, i too agree. the rear lights are screwed up. the current one had better proportion and symmetry than this one.

The front looks really neat. The present U-va interior is horrible and so is the gearshift. GM needs to bring the U-va as soon as possible to India.

Yeah.. plonk in a good diesel heart and with some decent pricing, this could be a scorcher.

It certainly looks nice. I remember reading in one of the mags that it was India bound. However, even they had not mentioned the dates.

Request to mods: can you please reduce the picture size. Its kind of troublesome to view such huge pics.
