The Aveo sedan is available in two trim levels i.e. 1.4SE and 1.4SX, to be available later. Fully imported from Thailand (CBU) the SE retails at RM69,888. The engine is Daewoo’s 1.4L E-TEC II with 16-valve DOHC, generating 94bhp at 6200rpm and 130Nm maximum torque at 3400rpm. The 4-cylinder chambers are fed via multi-point fuel injection featuring Variable Geometry Intake System (VGIS). Standard for the Aveo Sedan is a four-speed automatic transmission equipped with Fuzzy Logic Control for a more responsive drive.
Equipments are fairly decent for a B-segment sedan like this new Aveo notchback. Among them are a 400litre boot space, 60/40 split reclining backseats, a tilt-adjustable power steering, power windows, central locking, electric side-view mirrors and front seatbelts with pretensioner.
The sub-compact sedan wears MacPherson struts up front, with its rear sprung on a torsion beam set-up. For stopping power, the Aveo Sedan comes equipped with front discs and rear drum brakes. A single, driver’s side airbag is added to the SX variant. There is no mention of ABS available for both SE and/or SX. Five colours are available for the new Aveo Sedan: Sterling Silver, Sparkling Tan, Alpine White, Citrus Green and Black Sapphire.
