Update from Vicky Blog :

Chevrolet has launched the current aveo U-VA today with a minor facelift and not the one shown in the pics earlier.

The front 2piece looks very good, jus like the Audi Q7 front..
However the rear lights look sedate to me. It is similar to the roundish ones from the Spark. The earlier rear lamps were good actually and made it more road stucking car, now it looks as if it will fly off.

Any idea about the cost. Is it cheaper than the present UVA?

NEW DELHI: General Motors (GM) India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of US carmaker General Motors Corp, Thursday launched a new Chevrolet model here.

"The new Chevrolet U-VA brings superlative value and additional safety, security and luxury to our customers," said GM India vice president P Balendran at the launch.

"We will continue to roll out new products and also revitalise our existing line-up to create new excitement in the market," he added.

Moving from its base model, the car comes with additional features such as wider windscreen, driver airbag with anti-brake locking system, keyless entry with burglar alarm, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, split-folding rear seats, and deco moulding on the instrument panel and door trims.

Launched as a part of the company's centenary year celebration, the vehicle was unveiled by its brand ambassador and Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan. The car is being promoted with a "Bada Dil Badi Car" tag

Looking at the current Aveo and UVA, the picture posted above hardly comes across as a surprise.

Where did you get that pic from Karan? It looks pretty different from the present Aveo.

I believe these features are already available, driver side airbag is part of the option pack

Default Are these really new features???

I am not sure what they are up to?

My 5 months old UVA has all these features as ABS, driver side airbag, leather wrapped steering wheel and gear know.....etc etc...

What they really need now is the new version with 1.4 Petrol and a diesel. They can always continue with 1.2 version in older looks for excise benefit.
