Chevrolet has priced the 2012 Aveo, which will hit the market in next January. The 1.2 LS model is priced at just £9 995, which is a great value for money.

"Much like we did with the Spark, we wanted to take the image of small cars away from being cute and cuddly," said Chevrolet UK Managing Director Mark Terry.

"Instead, we've delivered a car that's striking, bold and has attitude. It draws on our iconic models, such as the Camaro and Corvette, for its styling influence, with cues such as the distinctive round headlamps and dual-cockpit interior giving it a lot more personality than you'd normally find in this sector of the market.", he added.

The standard equipment includes remote locking, a rear spoiler, CD-stereo radio, electrically adjustable heated door mirrors and electric front windows.

The LT trim level adds 15" alloy wheels, steering wheel audio controls, air conditioning, a four-way adjustable driver's seat, sunglasses holder, a Driver Information Centre, Bluetooth phone compatibility, and a chrome gear knob surround. This model is priced at £10 995 with 1.2 liter petrol.

The top-of-range LTZ includes a leather steering wheel, front fog lamps, rear parking sensors and automatic headlamps. Prices for the LTZ start at £12 195.

The engine range includes a 1.2-litre petrol unit with 86PS, a 1.4-litre petrol with 101PS or two 1.3-litre diesels - either 75 or 95PS. All come with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, while the 1.4-litre models have the option of a 6-speed automatic.
