Both feature a 1.6-liter 16 valve four-cylinder engine that generates 103 horsepower linked to a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic and both come nicely equipped. You can also choose from a nice array of optional equipment as an upgrade.Read more Read less
For 2008, the upscale Chevy Aveo LT sedan gets chrome door handles, and an available Power Package, which includes power windows and locks and remote keyless entry. New-design 15-inch alloy wheels are available across the lineup. Also, the sedan's suspension has been retuned with a firmer setting for more precise handling.
Low initial price; relatively roomy interior; good ride; standard side air bags on sedan.
The 2008 Chevrolet Aveo appeals to shoppers primarily on the basis of its very low initial price. The Aveo SVM especially, with its entry price of just over $10,000, is the lowest-priced passenger car currently on sale in the U.S. Both body styles are quite roomy inside and have a comfortable ride relative to other small cars.
