Only 2.5 years since it was introduced, Chevrolet introduces a redesigned Chevrolet Aveo sedan. The 2007 Aveo sedan boasts an all-new exterior and roomy interior design characterized by youthful refinement; a more confident, dynamic driving experience and generous features usually seen in more expensive cars. It was designed to challenge expectations of what an entry-level car can deliver.

"Customers will recognize the Aveo sedan as a 'smart buy' that delivers on Chevy's Total Value Promise," said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. "With its good looks, enjoyable driving experience and 'big car' personality, Aveo plays a big role in Chevy's passenger car family."

In redesigning the sedan, the Aveo team reached beyond the important affordability factor to overachieve all-around, with great design, a smooth, safe driving experience and amenities that until now were rare in the segment.

The 2007 Aveo sedan is available in LS and LT models, and illustrates Chevy's philosophy of offering more for less. Both models offer many standard features and an impressive range of options. The 2007 Aveo sedan builds on advancements, such as standard side-impact air bags, implemented during the 2006 model year. The new LS and LT sedans join the Aveo5 hatchback LS and Special Value Model. (Please see separate release for more information on Aveo5).

The Aveo sedan is well-equipped, with standard features that include a five-speed manual transmission; 1.6L 16-valve E-TEC II DOHC that delivers 103 horsepower (77kW) and 107 lb.-ft. of torque; air conditioning with cabin filtration and rear-seat air vents; vented front disc and rear drum brakes; stainless steel exhaust; and front MacPherson strut suspension with rear semi-independent with torsion beam suspension.

Other standard features include:

  • Power rack-and-pinion steering

  • Intermittent windshield wipers

  • Dual-stage frontal driver and passenger air bags and seat-mounted side-impact air bags

  • Body-color outside rearview mirrors and door handles

  • AM/FM stereo radio with auxiliary input jack (for an iPod or other device)

  • Driver's seat with fold-down armrest, manual height adjuster and manual lumbar adjuster

  • 60/40 split-folding rear seats with height-adjustable head restraints for outboard passengers

  • Tilt steering wheel

  • Tilting head restraints

  • Rear window defogger

  • Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs)

  • Sunglass and ticket holders

  • Driver and front passenger seatback map pockets on all models

Aveo LS sedan options include an Aisin four-speed automatic transmission with Hold Control Mode that gives the driver the ability to manually shift gears (also available on LT); four-channel anti-lock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (also available on LT); and 14-inch alloy wheels (14-inch steel wheels with a redesigned bolt-on wheel cover are standard).

Other LS options include:
