2008 Chevrolet Aveo review – specs, crash rating – CarMagi

With an impressive crash test rating and connectivity for your iPod, the 2008 Chevrolet Aveo is a compact family car that gets you to your destination safely, and with style. Holding up to five passengers, the new Aveo comes in LT and LS trims and is powered by a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that produces 103hp. Whether you choose a standard 5-speed manual transmission or the optional 4-speed automatic, the Aveo is road-worthy on city streets and highway.

Once inside the cabin of the 2008 Aveo you are immediately struck by its apparent roominess and comfortable seating. Whether you opt for the standard cloth seats in neutral or charcoal color, or the cushy leatherette, your headrests are adjustable and the back seat splits 60/40 to fold down. The front seats are buckets that cushion you against horizontal g-forces as you take those curves in the mountains. Instrumentation includes a tachometer and cruise control, while the audio system sports six speakers and a full seek and scan AM/FM radio.

To back up that impressive crash rating, the 2008 Chevrolet Aveo protects its occupants with driver and front passenger airbags and ample crumple zones to minimize intrusion into the passenger compartment in the event of a collision. Children in the rear seats are protected from accidentally exiting the vehicle with child-proof door locks. Side guard door beams are included to reduce injury in the event of a side-impact collision.

With its 103hp engine, the 2008 Chevrolet Aveo achieves highway speeds in a hurry and has the torque to pass with vigor. The new Aveo can be purchased in White, Black, Blue, Silver, Red, Orange, or Yellow. Promising to be the family car for years to come, the 2008 Chevrolet Aveo is built strong, and safely equipped to last years no matter how you drive it.
