2009 Chevrolet Aveo 5 1LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
The Aveo seemed far more comfortable and easier to drive than competitors. My wife LOVES the car! It's cute and it's fun to drive. There appears to be more negative bias toward this car than deserved. Test drive one and compare it to the Yaris, Fit, Rio, etc. for yourself. You may not need or want certain features others may offer. This was the right car for us, considering what we expect from it.
Easy enter and exit. Seating is high, visibility excellent. Exterior fit and finish is excellent.
VERY little storage space, no center console storage bin. Hatch has no remote release.
