New 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 is a small car with large-car roominess, amenities and huge fuel economy.
Los Angeles – Proving that fuel solutions can be wrapped in bold, fun packages, Chevrolet unveiled the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The redesigned challenger to the economy segment delivers exceptional, EPA-estimated fuel economy of 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway (with the standard five-speed manual transmission) – and is expected to be the lowest-priced car in America when it goes on sale in 2008.

“Chevrolet is committed to fuel solutions of all types, and the new 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 demonstrates that gasoline remains viable in a highly efficient, affordable package,” said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. “It is a terrific value, with a worry-free ownership experience that has the lowest ownership cost of any vehicle on the market, yet it packs all of Chevy’s fun-to-drive spirit.”

The new 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 reaffirms the brand’s value position and builds on it with features expected in larger, more expensive cars – such as standard OnStar and available XM Satellite Radio – as well as its signature “tall car” design that enables surprising passenger and cargo room. It is powered by a new, fuel-sipping, 1.6L DOHC engine with variable valve timing that produces more power (107 hp / 80 kW) and strong torque (106-lb.-ft. / 143 Nm) – and has been tuned for quieter performance.

“Customers will be surprised by the ‘big’ features of the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 – big room, big style, big refinement and, of course, big fuel economy,” said Peper. “It is a flexible car that provides untold capabilities, with cargo features and flexibility that change as your needs change.”

Indeed, the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5’s efficiency and flexibility go hand in hand. With its improved fuel economy among the best on the
market using regular gasoline, the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 can travel more than 400 miles (643 km) between fill-ups, resulting in fewer trips to the gas station and road trips that require fewer stops.

The 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 goes on sale in mid-2008, joining the recently redesigned Aveo sedan. It is available in base, LS and LT trims – each backed by a “worry free” five-year/100,000-mile transferable powertrain warranty, plus Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation.
