Chevrolet Aveo 2017 facelift debuts in UAE and GCC

The 2017 Chevrolet Aveo has been properly facelifted for the first time in a decade. The Aveo name was relegated largely to fleet duties, but it is making a comeback as a Sonic replacement with new infotainment tech.

The front end features a new bonnet, new front fascia and new lighting elements. Projector-beam headlamps are standard. The rear fascia is also new. There are also new 15-inch wheel designs with steel on the Base and LS trims and alloy wheels on the LT trim.

The updated styling complements new features such as an available 7-inch-diagonal colour touchscreen for the new MyLink system, and includes Apple CarPlay. Rear Park Assist is also available on the LS and LT.

The Aveo sedan and hatchback both offer a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, plus an impressive 502 liters of cargo space for the sedan and 653 liters of cargo space for the hatchback.

Standard safety features include two standard airbags, ABS, ESP and a tyre-pressure monitor.

The Aveo comes with a 115 hp 1.6-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine with variable valve timing, mated to a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission. Fuel economy is rated at 7.1 litres/100 km (14.1 km/l).

The 2017 Aveo goes on sale soon, offered in Base, LS, LT trims on sedan and hatchback models. Expect a starting price around the Dhs 45,000 mark.

    Hi , I have a doubt and would appreciate if you’ll can help me. I want to know what is the difference between US Spec Car and GCC Spec Car. What difference will it make if I buy a US Spec Car. What will be the expenditure on maintenance compared to GCC, I was looking out to buy a Dodge Charger second hand 2013 model , but is a US spec and I have seen the price for US Spec is less than the GCC Spec car. Why is it ? Please can you help me in this

    • There’s plenty of imported Chargers in UAE. Be wary of its history though. There have been cases of written off cars being shipped to Middle East. Try getting hold of the VIN and have it checked out. Request for a general inspection at a dealer or a reputed service centre to make sure of the condition of the car. US-spec cars will have no warranty.

      As for service, you could always buy a service contract at Trading Enterprises for AED4-9K which should cover you for 3-5 years.
