Chevrolet working on a baby SUV based on Aveo

Article by Christian A., on October 25, 2010

According to the latest reports from Autocar, it appears that Chevrolet is determined to enter the baby SUV and will build a new five-seater based on the 2011 Aveo, which was recently unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The car is being designed and engineered in Korea by GM Dat and will make its debut by 2012. 

Still, the designs of the car have yet to be finalized, but according to some GM execs that have seen the clay model of the car at the Korean research and development centre, the vehicle uses a stretched Aveo platform and will be offered in both four wheel drive and front-drive guises.

As expected, the design will borrow the same philosophy as the new-generation Chevrolet models, while the interior design will follow the dual cockpit design seen on the 2011 Cruze. Some interior details will be borrowed from the Opel Astra and Insignia.

Opel will also built its version of the SUV, but don’t expect to borrow the same design lines seen on the upcoming Aveo-based baby SUV.

Furthermore, Chevrolet is also working on a sedan version of the Aveo, which will be introduced in January, at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.
