2005 Chevrolet Aveo - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevrolet Aveo.

Chevrolet presents the Aveo with the question, "how many students can fit inside?" That alone should give you a clue as to the market segment the Aveo targets. As a tiny model that nevertheless seems to offer a good deal of interior space, the Aveo is one of the most inexpensive vehicles you can buy.

So while it isn't exactly a good idea to cram as many students as possible into an Aveo, it is a good buy for the more sober aspects of a student's life.

Available Models
The 2005 Chevrolet AVeo lineup includes a four-door sedan and a stylish five-door hatchback. Each seats five adults and is available in three trim levels: the Special Value Model (SVM), LS and LT.

Interior Features
Interior flexibility is one of the more useful features of the 2005 Chevrolet Aveo. The rear seat of the sedan folds flat for more cargo room and allows pass-through from the trunk. The hatchback, on the other hand, offers the only rear seat in the segment that folds flat and flips forward, for a segment-leading 42 cubic feet of cargo area.

Standard features for all models include a tilt steering column, an AM/FM stereo, a six-way adjustable driver seat, a rear-window defroster and a remote fuel door. Also included are a storage pocket on the back of the front passenger seat and a lighted glove box.

Options include a theft-deterrent system, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 player and premium speakers.

Exterior Features
2005 sees an upgrade in the Aveo's exterior equipment package. This year, SVM and LS models get restyled wheel covers, and all Aveos add a black roof-pillar trim.

The 2005 Chevrolet Aveo's performance is guided by an E-TEC II 1.6-liter dual overhead cam, 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine. It is able to produce 103 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 107 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm.

There are two transmissions available: 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual. Automatics have a fuel rating of 26/34 mpg (city/highway), while manuals do slightly better with a rating of 27/35 mpg (city/highway).

Safety and Security
The 2005 Chevrolet Aveo also is the only light car to receive the government's highest safety rating for frontal crash performance-five stars for both driver and front passenger.

Aveo's standard dual diagonal brake system includes large ventilated front discs and self-adjusting rear drum brakes. The rear brakes have a wide lining for increased service life. A four-channel, four-sensor ABS system with electronic brake force distribution (EBD) is available as an option.
