The first images of the 2012 Chevrolet Aveo econbox sneaked out on the web today following an earlier presentation by Bob Lutz. General Motors had previewed the next generation Aveo subcompact model with the sporty RS concept at the Detroit Show this past January.
The four-door saloon version keeps the same front-end design with the 'angry-looking' twin headlamps as well as the big grille and pronounced fenders of the conceptual five-door RS hatchback. Same goes for the interior, albeit with more production like and less fancy materials and decorative trim.
Other details remain scarce on the four- and five-door models of the 2012 Aveo range that rivals Ford's new Fiesta, but it is believed that Chevrolet will unveil the production version before the end of the year as production is slated to begin in early 2011 at GM's factory in Orion Township, Michigan.
