We barbecued our turkey on the BBQ last Christmas. We are just two, and the grill needed not an acre of space to supply all our needs. Chevrolet feels different about the grill (with an e) of its new Aveo5. Woweeee.

Small car competition is growing in North America, and the Aveo’s success will only continue if it stands out from the pack…. someway, somehow. The new Aveo5 will provide an 8% improvement in fuel economy from its 107bhp 1.6L four. The Aveo5’s optional auto transmission is a gear behind its best competitor, the Honda Fit.

The Aveo is one of the smallest and least expensive vehicles in the North American market. But it surely provides one of the highest grille-acreage-to-main-body ratios seen anywhere.
