January 8, 2010.
Chevrolet today announced the world debut of the Aveo RS show car at the 2010 North American International Auto Show. It features a European-inspired hot hatch look designed to appeal to young enthusiasts, and hints at the next-generation Aveo.

2011 Chevrolet Aveo RS.

Longer, wider and more spacious than the current production Aveo, the Aveo RS showcases the car’s upscale-looking design cues both inside and out, and presents the many personalization options potentially available on the next-generation car.

“We hope the Aveo RS show car will demonstrate that we are as serious about redefining the Aveo and its place in the small-car segment as we were about reinventing the Malibu,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet general manager.

First impressions.
The Aveo RS show car, finished in electric Boracay Blue, wears global Chevrolet design cues such as the dual element grille, round taillamps and fender flares, but designers turned up the attitude on the show car with low openings and a lower mouth trimmed in a combination of brushed and polished aluminum. Outboard fog lamps are integrated into an exaggerated brake-cooling inlet that flows into the front fender flares, creating an aggressive-looking face.

Exposed headlamps, with their brushed aluminum structural surround, are inspired by the designers’ affection for motorcycles. The sleek side profile is characterized by uninterrupted body side lines, a high beltline and low roofline. The side mirrors with amber-colored turn signal indicators carry the same shape as the car and seemingly disappear into the profile. At first glance, the car actually looks like a three-door hatch because the rear door handles are discreetly located in the “C”-pillar area.

“The Aveo RS show car demonstrates how progressive design can inject personality into a small car,” said Michael Simcoe, executive director, North American Exterior Design. “We want customers to see it and have an emotional reaction to it.”

No performance-minded car earns its street cred without large wheels and tires. The Aveo RS show car’s wheels are 19-inch, five-spoke with a gun metal metallic finish Chevrolet logo. The wheel openings reveal large Boracay Blue brake calipers.

The rear of the show car continues the sport theme, with an integrated spoiler that flows from the roof, a center-mounted exhaust and chrome exhaust tips. The exposed motorcycle-inspired rear taillamps feature tinted aluminum housings and a discreet Bowtie logo.

Spacious and stylish interior.
With its matte black interior highlighted by gloss black, metallic and blue accents, the Aveo RS show car reflects as much attention to detail as the exterior. The Boracay Blue theme continues inside, with accent stitching across the dual cockpit instrument panel, front and rear door insert, steering wheel rim, gear shift boot, parking brake, leather seat bolster and even the floor mats. The integrated center stack holds the gearshift, HVAC controls and the sound system, including a USB port. Ice-blue backlighting on the audio display, telltale indicator screen and knobs augments the blue stitching.

The motorcycle inspiration also carries inside, with a round, analog tachometer set within an asymmetrical LCD readout also trimmed in milled metal with round cutouts; and round, aluminum-trimmed side vents.

The interior is as functional as it is stylish, with storage compartments in the center stack and doors. The rear seats fold flat for carrying larger items.

Efficient performer.
The Aveo RS show car is powered by the same highly efficient 138-horsepower (103 kW) 1.4L I-4 Ecotec turbocharged engine that will be available in the upcoming Chevrolet Cruze.

A six-speed manual transmission is designed to ensure the car will provide a spirited driving experience.

For the show car, designers created a special engine cover in graphite silver with a brushed aluminum insert. The coolant and power steering fluid fill caps are rimmed in ice blue, and the honeycomb vents flanking the center of the cover are matte-finished in shadow chrome and designed to match the wheel color.

Chevrolet has previously announced the new Aveo will be built at Orion Assembly in Orion Township, Mich., in 2011, a move that will restore 1,200 jobs to Southeast Michigan. Timing for retooling Orion Assembly for Aveo production is anticipated to begin in late 2010.

My overall opinion of the 2011 Chevy Aveo RS Hatchback. I have not driven the car yet, so this is not a review. However, taking into account what I already know about the 2011 Chevy Aveo RS Hatchback, I will prove to you why you can not go wrong with this car. My opinion is subject to change after my driving expierence (but wow, it's a HUGE improvement from the previous generation, and that opinon will never change) So, without futuretodo, here is my opinion of this probably Euro Edition Aveo....It might be the U.S though I am not certain the U.S will be given a hachback.

First off, it is important to note that the pictures shown above, are not those of the base RS modle. This car has an extensive list of extra features. But, hey, it's an Aveo, Chevy's cheapest compact car yet so I don't know about you guys but if I were to buy one, it would look pretty much the same. I would never buy this car with just standard features. It would be boring, bland and unattractive.

What makes the Chevy Aveo RS, a popular choice is ofcourse the adequate perfomance it offers from just a small 4 cyliner 1.4 liter turbo enhanced engine. That is less hp than Honda's Civic Si. But it makes up for it in fuel economy numbers which in Chevy's Aveo RS, rumors have been suggesting up to low to mid 30 mpg when coasting under ideal road conditions.

Next benefit of getting an Aveo RS over a Honda Civic Si would be the size of the car. It looks like the size of the Honda Fit, (for size comparison purposes only) and although no noticeable difference is evident with a quick glance, rumors on the Internet have been suggesting slightly wider overall dimensions on the Chevy Aveo RS. By wider dimensions that can mean a bunch of things like more distance required to make a turn or harder to fit in tight spaces but in the general scheme of things, bigger is better.

Styling/Features: For a compact car that can be had for as little as 13,500USD (not the RS ofcourse) the styling of this car is just fantastic. The level of detail in the steering wheel alone has an exceptional luxurious type of look to it. (Take a closer look for yourself, the 2nd picture from the bottom, it is a great close up shot.) I personally like the blue stiching around the steering wheel and throughout the car actually. And yes, the Honda Civic Si also has the stiching, theirs is red. Also, the Aveo has recieved minor but still well Camro oriented styling cues particulary in the RS model, surprisingly evident in the now digital and boxy apperanced gauges. Continuing on the same subject, the new 2012 Focus is scheduled to really come up from above with a complete new body styling inside and out. It really is better and much more refined. >Continuing on with the Styling and Featues
