by : John Bourne

The new 2008 Chevrolet Aveo is a compact car that offers well- tuned suspensions, respectable vehicle dynamics, and impressive interior features all at a very affordable price.

Aveo comes standard with 14- inch steel wheels, manual mirrors and windows, manual locks, and a radio with four speakers. Other great new features are the availability of cruise control, sunroof, power windows and keyless entry. Meanwhile, it also offers great entertainment features with its CD/MP3 player, upgraded audio with an in- dash CD changer and steering wheel- mounted audio controls.

The 2008 Chevy Aveo has a 1.6- liter, four- cylinder engine that delivers 103 horsepower and 107 pound- feet of torque tat guarantee superior performance. It comes standard with a five- speed manual transmission or you may opt for a four- speed automatic with an electronic "hold" feature which protects when driving on slippery surfaces.

The '08 Aveo also offers stylish interiors that feature wood grain or metallic trim for that touch of class. Meanwhile, a driver's armrest and additional storage capability are also included. It has a folding 60/40 split rear seat that can carry up to 42 cubic feet of cargo while its trunk has 12.4 cubic feet of volume.

In addition to the Aveo's larger size and new styling, standard safety features are still available. It provides three- point seatbelts for all five passengers with pretentioners in the front. Side airbags and Antilock brakes are also provided for maximum protection. The Aveo earned five- star rating in NHTSA crash tests for its performance of front occupants in frontal impacts and four stars for occupants in side impacts.

The 2008 Chevrolet Aveo is not only affordable but provides respectably vehicle dynamics for adequate everyday commuting. Its all- new design, interior features, and standard safety features make it one of the best and affordable models this year.
