Chevrolet has made significant changes to their Aveo for 2007. At $9,995 the Aveo5 hatchback is one of the lowest priced cars sold in America, while the Aveo sedan offers standard air conditioning. Though the exterior and interior styling was redone for 2007 and the suspension was retuned, the same reliable 1.6L four cylinder engine remains under the hood. The E-Tec has double overhead camshafts, electronic throttle control and variable geometry induction are modern elements that help it to make 103 horsepower. The Special value trim remains on the Aveo5, but is no longer available on the sedan. Side air bags are now standard for 2007.
Low price; versatile interior; good gas mileage; a surprising amount of features.
Chevy's 2007 Aveo5 Special Value hatchback remains one of the lowest priced new cars in the U.S. today, and a number of changes from 2006 have made the Aveo more comfortable than its price point would suggest. Buyers can order an LT sedan with cruise control, power conveniences, ABS, and a six-disc CD changer while keeping the car below $15,000.
