Electronic stability control is standard equipment across the Aveo range, and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. The driver, front passenger and rear seats are all covered by a standard-fit seatelt reminder. A warning is given if the vehicle speed exceeds a limit se by the driver, a system that was also rewarded by Euro NCAP.
2012 Chevrolet Aveo CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection for the knees and femurs of both the driver and front passenger dummies and Chevrolet showed that a similar level of protection would be offered to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. The Aveo scored maximum points in the side barrier test, all body regions being well protected. Even in the more severe pole test, the chest was adequately protected. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Maximum points were scored in the dynamic tests for the protection of the 3 year infant. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded by Euro NCAP. Permanently attached labels also provide clear warnings that the passenger airbag should be disabled before a rearward facing child seat can be used in that position.

A seatbelt reminder is standard equipment for the driver and front passenger seats. There is no speed limitation device available for the Jetta.

2011 Chevrolet Aveo roadtest (english subtitled)
Groot zijn de aantallen niet voor Chevrolet in Nederland. Met de Cruze hoopte het Koreaanse merk potten te kunnen breken in het C-segment, maar daar is vooralsnog weinig van terecht gekomen. Het is nu de beurt aan de Aveo om types als de Fiesta, Punto en Fabia te beconcurreren. Is hij tegen de concurrentie opgewassen? We gaan rijden.
Chevrolet Aveo review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/chevrolet/aveo/hatchback/review
The Chevrolet Aveo boasts high levels of standard equipment, and a new, motorbike-inspired interior. The funky rev counter and LED speedometer add a sporty touch to the Aveo's cabin, while the coupe-inspired styling, including hidden rear door handles and aggressive headlights, adds even more kerbside appeal. The Aveo is more practical than the excellent Suzuki Swift, and with prices set to undercut many of the class leaders, Chevrolet has created a tempting package. A new diesel version should also be one of the most frugal cars in its class too.
2012 Chevrolet Captiva CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs. Chevrolet showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and those sat in different positions. All body areas were well protected in the side barrier test and the car scored maximum points in this test. In the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of rib compression indiciated marginal protection of the chest area. The front seats and head restraints provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear end collision.
Forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing restraint, was not excessive. In the side barrier test, both child dummies were properly contained by the protective shells of their restraints, minimising the likelihood of dangerous head contacts. The passenger airbag can be disabled by means of a switch, allowing a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not clear and the system was not rewarded. Clear warnings are given of the dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in that seat without first disabling the airbag.
The front edge of the bonnet provided uniformly poor protection to pedestrians. In most areas likely to be struck by a child's head, the bonnet provided good protection. However, predominantly poor protection was provided in those areas likely to be struck by and adult's head.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment, as is a seatbelt reminder for the driver and front passenger seats. A speed limitiation device is not available.
Test Chevrolet Aveo 5d 1.4 LTZ
De nieuwe Aveo is de opvolger van de Chevrolet Aveo, die alweer enige tijd geleden de Daewoo Kalos verving. Met deze nieuweling, die ook nog als vierdeurs uitvoering verkrijgbaar is, mengt Chevrolet zich in het druk bevochten segment waarin 'ie het moet opnemen tegen o.a. de Ford Fiesta, de Skoda Fabia en de onlangs gelanceerde Kia Rio. Qua uiterlijk en prijsstelling zal 'm dat wel gaan lukken, maar hoe zit 't met z'n prestaties? Dat zochten we voor u uit met de 1.4 LTZ-uitvoering, die bovendien voorzien was van fraai 17-inch schoeisel. Ga voor het volledige testverslag naar: www.autoplusonline.nl!!
► 2012 Chevy Sonic makes a bungee jump!
When Chevrolet decided to launch the all-new Sonic in the States, it seems they took the word 'launch' a little too seriously.
On the back of research that showed extreme sports to be highly popular within the car's 18-30 target customer range, the company decided to make quite an impact by throwing a car from the top of a ten storey tower in Long Beach, California.
Well, we say impact. But just before it plummeted to the ground, the all-new Aveo dipped its nose in a paddling pool and bounced back up in an incredible display of non-contact automotive bungee-jumping.
The stunt was performed as part of Chevrolet's 'Let's do this' marketing campaign in the USA.
The Bungee Jump is the second extreme sport in which the Aveo has participated. Last month, the car was launched more quickly than any car in history -- accelerating from 0-60mph in just 0.4 seconds as it was pushed out of an aeroplane, to perform its first freefall skydive.
