Default Chevrolet Pimps the Aveo5

Quote:
Apparently the Aveo5 can look worse, much worse as GM unshamefully proves. The American automaker has launched a new customization program for the small Chevy that is available across the Middle East. Mods can range anywhere from the simple fitting of alloy wheels and applying stick on decals moving on to more complicated fittings of front bumper kits, side skirts, rear wings, spoilers, hood and roof scoops or even a customized paint job. "We understand some people might want to build on that wonderful package, and there are several options for them to choose from while doing so," commented Karen Toor, Marketing Manager of Chevrolet in the Middle East.

And if any of you think that the demonstration Aveo5 pictured above looks decent, we're pretty sure you'll have a change of heart after seeing the car's interior by following the jump below.

It's like wrapping a little turd in yellow construction paper.

It's the middle east, I was expecting much worse.

Honestly I expect at minimum 22's, a luis vitton (sp?) interior, and some chrome paint job.

This thing just reminds me of high school

Really though, the exterior is not too bad.

Put in a pair of sport buckets, leave em' red (ala ITR) and black out the rest of the interior. Put in a low boost turbo for ~ 140hp and your could have a fun little hatch

Being a Iraq vetrean, I can see how GM could sell millions of these over there . No BS GM has a winner in the Middle East market . You want Gaudy, Arabs for the win .
