If the name Daewoo doesn’t mean much to you, you’re not alone. The long struggling Korean car company tried to sell cars here with limited success, and in the end wound up being bought by General Motors. But with GM comes huge dealer networks hungry for affordable cars, a Daewoo specialty. That’s where this new Chevrolet Aveo comes in. It’s Chevy’s new import entry into the crowded subcompact class. So, can this freshman Daewoo really compete in the toughest car segment on the planet? Let’s find out.

As the first of a new generation of cars for a domestic GM brand from Daewoo, the 2004 Aveo is a perky and affordable import addition to Chevrolet’s lineup. Available as a 4-door sedan or our 5-door hatchback, the Aveo comes in three trim levels: Special Value, Base, and LS, and it really is a bit of an international wonder.

The Aveo is Built in South Korea where it is sold as the Kalos. But, it was designed in Europe by Giorgetto Giugiaro’s Italdesign. So, it’s no mystery then where the Aveo’s clean lines, short overhangs and soft European looks originated. No wonder it also sells well in Europe where small cars are a passion.

In addition to its steep, smiling grille, the Aveo features expensive touches like halogen headlamps with faceted lens, and of course wears the signature gold Chevy bow tie dead center. The high roof sweeps backward into our car’s hatched-back and leads down to wide-angled, jewel-like tail lamps. Its compact 97.6-inch wheelbase rides on standard 14-inch steel wheels or our upgraded aluminum alloys.

The 5-passenger interior is straightforward, uncluttered, and offers lots of head room. Like the exterior, fit and finish is very good. The efficient dash includes an easy to read analog gauge pod. Drivers can find comfort in cloth bucket seats with manual fore/aft, recline and height adjust and a standard tilt steering wheel. And though the feel of most controls is not as refined as the best from Japan, our only real complaint was some squeaky plastics in our early prototype.

While the Base trim level is nicely equipped for daily transportation Ð it includes air conditioning Ð the LS is almost luxurious with CD/MP3-Stereo, power windows and locks, and remote keyless entry, and more.

In back, rear seats are flat and leg room is fairly tight, but still on par with class competitors. A 60/40 split flip-fold rear bench expands cargo room from a tiny 7.1 cubic feet to a huge 42 cubic feet under a lightweight rear hatch. And that’s on par with a Volkswagen Golf.

Aveo power comes from a 1.6-liter dual-overhead-cam inline-4. It cranks out an honest 105 horsepower, and 107 pound-feet of torque. And with our Aveo’s 4-speed automatic transmission Ð a 5-speed is standard Ð it hit 60 in a steady 10.4 seconds. The quarter mile was met in 17.9 seconds at 76 miles-per-hour.

Braking produced longish stops from 60 of 135 feet. Without ABS, the vague pedal makes the front disc and rear drum brakes easy to lock up. So, to us, ABS is a must.

In corners, the front-drive Aveo turns in quickly with minor understeer. However, in a repetitive slalom exercise, that understeer transitions to light, controllable oversteer. But, a mushy soft suspension and lots of body roll keeps the Aveo from being much fun to drive. Hardware is struts up front and a twist beam axle in the rear. The rack-and-pinion steering is light but vague. But on the road the Aveo handles well for its class. The soft springs provide better than expected ride quality, and it’s relatively quiet.

Fuel economy has EPA estimates rolling in at 26 city and 34 highway for our automatic. Our test loop gave up 30 mpg in mixed driving. And if that’s not enough said, a true testament to the Aveo’s comfortably cute, affordable style was our staff’s eager race for the keys overnight. Now when is the last time we said that about a small car?

So, are you ready to hop in your own Aveo? Ok. Here’s what to expect. Both the hatchback and sedan start at $9,995 for the Special Value model. The Base models begin at $11,690, and the very well equipped LS models at $12,585.

So, for teen drivers and thrift-seekers alike, the reliance and appeal of the 2004 Chevrolet Aveo and this new alliance by GM and Daewoo could be considered, if nothing else, a great first effort. Overall the Aveo is a fine alternative to rivals Kia Rio, Hyundai Accent, and Toyota Echo. And it gives Chevrolet a real competitive answer to the import subcompact market, and a pleasant little car that we could definitely live with at the end of the day.

Aveo 2004

2004 Chevrolet Aveo

The Chevrolet Aveo is an all-new subcompact available as a four-door sedan or five-door hatchback. It's based on a globally popular model called the Kalos built by Korean carmaker Daewoo. New to Chevrolet's 2004 lineup, the Aveo will complement the upcoming Chevy Cobalt, a premium small car planned to replace the Cavalier.

Aveo uses a proven GM 1.6-liter double-overhead-camshaft engine and comes standard with a five-speed gearbox. It's out to challenge the Toyota Echo, Scion xA, Kia Rio, and Hyundai Accent. The Echo and Scion are higher priced, however, leaving the ten-grand cars to the Koreans.

The basic models are basic, but the interiors are better than you'd expect, the front seats are comfortable and the back seats are surprisingly roomy. The Aveo looks good, particularly the sedan, and the body panels fit well. It delivers zippy performance, sharp steering and a decent ride. All of this makes the Chevy Aveo an attractive alternative to a used car.

Model Lineup

The Chevy Aveo comes in four-door and five-door hatchback body styles, priced the same. It's available in three trim levels: Special Value, Base and LS. They all use the 103-horsepower inline-4 engine with a standard five-speed gearbox.

Least expensive is the Special Value model ($9,455), which comes standard with single-stage airbags, halogen headlamps, ventilated front disc brakes, child safety seat system, folding sideview mirrors, tinted glass, tilt steering wheel, 60/40 split folding rear seat, AM/FM stereo, two-speed intermittent variable wipers, rear window defogger and, on the five-door, a wiper/washer on the liftgate window. There are no options.

The base model ($11,150) adds air conditioning with cabin filtration, carpeted floor mats, and a few other convenience features, but you still get windup windows. With the LS ($12,045) you get convenience: power locks and windows and remote entry, heated outside mirrors with power on the passenger side, upgraded seat fabric, and a CD player with MP3 playback. Fog lights are standard on the five-door base and LS models.

Aveo comes in eight lively colors, including yellow and bright blue. Options include a four-speed automatic transmission ($850) and anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution ($400). A stereo with CD and MP3 players is available for base models ($300) and late-2004 LS models offer a six-speaker premium sound system and power sunroof. Appearance packages include fog lights, alloy wheels, and a spoiler for the five-door.

The body structure is designed to provide as much crash protection to occupants as possible. The cabin is built like a steel cage, with steel members running vertically from the door hinge up the A pillars to the roofline, then back to reinforced B- and C-pillars, and down to the rocker panels. Each of the four doors contains a side-impact beam which when hit directs energy up through the side rails to a large front longitudinal member, then through a flat crossmember to the front axle and wheelhouse and finally down to the fender-door support.

Walkaround

The Chevrolet Aveo body was created, believe it or not, in the Giugiaro Italdesign studio in Turin, Italy. And it shows, especially in the smooth sedan, which is better looking than the Hyundai Accent or Rio. The sedan and five-door have the same wheelbase, but the sedan is 14 inches longer, and with that extra length to work with, Giugiaro made the car look real, and not so much like a toy.

The nose is nice: simple and clean with tidy shapes. The headlights are horizontal and nicely rounded at the corners, with long thin turn signals like amber underlines. There's a little smiley-face grille, inconspicuous in black mesh, with a tidy Chevy bowtie symbol in the center. Both front and rear bumpers are body colored and part of the shape of the car.

As sleek little hatchbacks go, the Aveo five-door isn't quite as good looking as Toyota's Scion xA, but it holds its own. The taillights especially, chunky and efficient, have a nice physical edge to them. The roofline is rounded, sloping back to meet the optional spoiler over the liftgate. There are character lines running back from the front wheelwell to the rear, which may or may not add character. The fit of the body panels is visibly tight, something not usually seen with low-priced entry-level cars.

Interior Features

The Aveo interior is better than you might expect for such a low-cost car. The seats offer a solid fit and are quite comfortable, with high-density foam under the LS's deluxe cloth in a tweedy pattern. There's a good four-spoke steering wheel, finished in matt black. The instrument panel is simple, while still presenting the important information in big gauges: speedo, tach, fuel and coolant temp. There's some silly pseudo carbon fiber in the door handles, and the golfball grain on the dash looks rough; but Cadillacs have it too. There are a number of thoughtful slots and pockets for storing things, including a lighted glovebox. There's a floor console with a storage compartment, and an extra 12-volt power outlet.

Our test model was an LS with the conveniences. We drove it on a hot Texas day, and the air conditioning was excellent. There was a CD player in the dash, and a storage slot big enough for your whole hand under the CD slot. The big round old-fashioned black gearshift knob with black boot was simple and appropriate for the no-frills Aveo.

We crawled in the back seat and discovered lots of room back there, as well as good visibility given the stadium seating, with elevated seats which are possible thanks to a high roof. The rear seat of the sedan folds flat and opens up to the trunk, while the rear seat of the five-door further flips forward with the touch of one finger, yielding a relatively cavernous cargo area.

Minimizing wind, road and engine noise, there's a lot of sound insulation located under the hood and floor, and in the doors and dash panel.

Driving Impressions

With an inexpensive compact car, there is no middle ground in acceleration: it's either zippy or it's a dog. The Aveo is zippy with room to spare, at least with the standard manual transmission, a solid five-speed gearbox. The gas pedal feels a bit mushy, but the engine works hard to overcome it. The little Aveo will chirp the tires in second gear, which will surely impress an audience of an owner's peers. Secretaries? High-school boys and girls? Little old people? Whomever, a chirp will impress them.

The Aveo is a common ground kind of car. It brings people together.

There's plenty of power from 2000 rpm in lower gears all the way up to 6000. The powerband is remarkably linear, with no lapses and surges as the tach needle climbs to 6500, where a rev-limiter abruptly chops acceleration; so you upshift and all is well. We accelerated all the way up to 85 mph in fourth gear, and the engine stayed with it all the way. But you can't expect miracles from 103 horsepower, so it won't exactly shoot you forward if you stomp it at 65 mph in fifth gear.

We gave the gearbox some good hard downshifts, and it took them without complaint. The gearshift lever had kind of a long throw, but then it isn't trying to be a sports car. The optional four-speed automatic is gated, so you can shift it like a manual. Aveo ingeniously offers manual capabilities that other cars use expensive technology to provide: Pressing a button on the shifter will hold it in second gear for starting on ice.

From behind the wheel the sedan seems to feel bigger than it is, or maybe it's actually bigger than it seems it should be. Whatever the reason, it's a good thing for a subcompact to feel bigger. The rack-and-pinion steering is sharp, and the torsion beam rear axle gives the car a grown-up feel, but with the turning circle a ridiculously small 16 feet, the car feels like a toy at the right time. However if you try to get too sporty in the curves, the narrow 14-inch tires will bring you back to reality.

Out on a Texas Interstate we ran with the 80-mph flow of traffic, mostly big ol' pickups, and it was pleasantly, surprisingly quiet inside the Aveo cabin, with nary a buzz from under the hood. The engine noise is low thanks to construction of the block itself, along with a large intake resonator and dual muffler exhaust system.

We're happy to report that when you lock the brakes, you will at least come to a screeching halt without veering. We found out by surprise that our LS did have the optional anti-lock brakes with brake force distribution. The front ventilated discs are large for the size of the car, and the rear drums have wide linings.

Our test route took us through a choppy construction zone and over some twisty back roads. There were a number of spots where the ride might have felt harsh if it were going to, and it didn't. We were driving a number of new GM cars over the same route, including everything from the Chevrolet SSR to Cadillac SRX, and it was interesting to compare them to each other in one particular dip, where the Aveo stayed right with the high-priced cars in the way it handled the dip.

Summary

The Chevrolet Aveo offers a lot for not much money. The frame structure has been designed with safety in mind. The engine offers zippy acceleration and delivers an estimated 27/39 miles per gallon, according to Chevrolet, with the manual transmission. The cabin is quiet and there's good room in the rear seats. If all you want to spend is $10,000 or $12,000 for a new car and you don't need anything more than a small five-seater, it's hard to see how you could go wrong with the Chevy Aveo.

Chevrolet Aveo

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
