It is a fact that Chevrolet will soon present the replacement for the Aveo (Sail) that is sold in Mexico. His arrival was announced with a preview image.
Some time ago we talked about new subcompact car that GM prepares from China, and that it will arrive on this side of the world under the Chevrolet brand. At that moment, when started its production in the Asian country known under the code «310C»it was confirmed that I would come to Latin America to occupy an important role within the subcompact segment.
At some point, we also saw leaks of its design in sedan and hatchback bodies. But now the day has come when Chevrolet itself confirmed its premiere in Mexico. As it is, it is to be assumed that will be the replacement of the current one Aveowhich is none other than the latest generation Sail that did not arrive in Colombia.
The brand statement was accompanied by an image, where you can see the hatchback model covered in camouflage, as if it were a test car. There is no more information, and no more photos. But there is a lot of loose data that the Mexican press has managed to collect.
New popular Chevrolet: what is known?
The development of this new popular Chevrolet car for Mexico and Latin America was in charge of SAIC-GM-Wulingthe Chinese subsidiary that also produces the Captiva. Everything points to that its interior will have a style very similar to that of the SUV Chevrolet Groove (which is not offered in Colombia either), and therefore from Captiva.
There is also talk of a 1.5 liter naturally aspirated engine and four cylinders, with 110 horsepower, which is the same as the aforementioned Groove. Connects to a 5-speed manual or CVT automatic.
It is more than likely that this car Focus your marketing in Mexico, where the Aveo remains one of the best-selling and lowest-priced cars. We should not expect it in Colombia, where this role is in the hands of Joy which in a few months will begin to be produced in Colmotores.
