Visit Land Rover
“Look at that white, cool sedan. See those crimson pyramid tail lights is it a Benz?
A Mercedes C-Class?” My co-driver asked.
I replied, “No, it’s the new 1.6 liter AVEO, Chevy SS now with 102 horsepower engine and a facelift. This is the big brother of the Chevrolet AVEO 1.4 Chevrolet sub compact launched a few years ago.
The twenty something say this one of the coolest cars on the market today. The CarSanook! demo came with a vanilla white or was it alpine white sparkling paint job.

On the exterior of the SS (Sport) version you’ll notice a full set of spoilers, skirts and sporty looks enhanced by four 16-inch alloy wheels.
The overall design remains the same Aveo's understated lines, high roof, and short front and rear overhangs give it a sense of panache that is rare in cars of this class.

This is contemporary Euro design Created in Giorgetto Giugiaro's renowned Italdesign studios in Turin, Italy. Aveo also features distinctive Chevrolet cues, such as Chevrolet's signature brand bar and the iconic gold bowtie.


Step inside. Here we were talking a bout the space factor. Automotive space. AVEO seems a tad narrow from the outside - but inside it feels wide and spacious. Quality upholstery. Functional gauges, dials, and levers. In car entertainment a 6 CD changer and MP3 player. Our tests drive to Ang-Sila in Bang Saen by the sea, Chonburi province. My wife daughter, wife, mother in law and the two golden toy poodles “Bibi” and “Bobo” were all riding in comfort. And in the trunk 400 liters of space for souvenir shopping.

The new a bigger 1,600 cc power is a refined and responsive peppy power plant. With estimated fuel consumption of circa 15 kilometer per liter. A bit less in stop & go city driving. Driving back to Bangkok on back roads, side roads, main roads and the motorway. Burt it was a smooth ride for the passengers and the four legged furry ones thanks to the ABS stoppers and EDB ( Electronic Brake Force Distribution) and the “Euro Ride” tuned suspension with an independent MacPherson spring-coiled strut setup with gas shock-absorbers.






























A cool drive in a cool looking car. Built for the young - they say. But as a “young at heart”. All I can say is - I like it. The new 1.6 liter AVEO by “Gee Emm”.
