The smallest and least expensive new car wearing a Chevrolet badge in the 2001 lineup, the Chevrolet Metro enters a tenth model year of existence in relative silence. Relegated to fleet sale only, the 2001 Chevrolet Metro will no longer include the three-door hatchback. Left with only a four-door sedan LSi version, the 2001 Metro trim equipment includes standard dual airbags, air conditioning and a fold-down rear seat. Truck release, power steering and door locks are listed as optional features to the Chevrolet Metro for 2001 with Preferred Equipment or Convenience packages. Powering the 2001 Chevrolet Metro is a 1.3 liter single overhead cam 4-cylinder engine. Producing just 79 horsepower, the 1984 pound subcompact sedan moves with adequate city driving performance. With front-wheel drive motion controlled through a three-speed automatic transmission, the 2001 Chevrolet Metro's fuel economy shines with a manufacturer rating of 30 miles city and 34 miles highway per gallon.
