2006 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I'm + 6' and fit comfortable in the front. It reminded me of a diesel Fiat I'de driven in Italy. Main purchase purpose is a commuter car. Seating provides good visability for everyone inside. So far it's a fun nimble, very easily parkable little car. It has the Europeon reverse shift pattern.
I enjoy the view from the car and the looks of the car itself. The standard transmission is responsive and fun once you figure out how to shift it. It seems to use similar room inside as the echo had with toyota.
Wish it was true 4 wheel independent suspinsion. Body role is a concern at highway speeds when making a quick pass of another car and returning to you prior lane.
