Chevrolet Introduces All-New Aveo 2013 in Vietnam
Has new exterior styling and premium interior amenities
HANOI – General Motors Vietnam today unveiled the all-new Chevrolet Aveo 2013 in Hanoi. The popular sedan has new exterior styling and the convenience of a new Automatic Transmission and additional features.
“The all-new Aveo is the result of GM’s extensive global small car development program. It was created for emerging markets such as Vietnam,” said GM Vietnam Managing Director Gaurav Gupta at today’s launch ceremony. “With its new look, features and competitive positioning, the Aveo 2013 will support Chevrolet’s continued growth in Vietnam.”
Le Thanh Hai, GM Vietnam’s head of Sales and Marketing, added: “The Aveo has become a popular model in Vietnam because it meets the needs of our customers. Our all-new 2013 model makes the Aveo an even smarter choice.”
The Aveo 2013 has a strong, more attractive European look that will appeal to younger buyers. It includes global Chevrolet design cues such as a dual-port grille with chromed bars and flared fenders. A low-hanging “big mouth” front bumper and fog lights pushed to either side of the fascia give it a sense of aggression.
It also comes with redesigned 15-inch five-spoke wheels, styling headlights and taillight clusters, chromed door handles and power adjustable folding mirrors. All are new on the 2013 model.
Premium, spacious interior
Thanks to its wider track and longer wheelbase, the Aveo is the largest car in its segment sold in Vietnam. Its spacious interior and ample storage space are among the best in its class.
The Aveo 2013 interior includes chromed door handles, an adjustable four-spoke steering wheel, a trunk light, and a six-disk CD player, MP3 player with AUX connections and four speakers. It also comes with remote keyless entry.
Benchmark safety and performance
The Aveo 2013 offers benchmark safety, with driver and front passenger air bags, anti-lock brakes and a seatbelt warning system.
It is equipped with a 1.5-liter SOHC MPI engine that generates maximum output of 62 kw//5,600 rpm and maximum torque of 128 Nm/3,000 rpm. This enables quick acceleration and gives the Aveo 2013 a powerful performance. Buyers have a choice of a four-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual transmission.
The Aveo 2013 will be sold at an attractive price that will give it an advantage versus other vehicles in its segment.
