The all-new Aveo is longer and wider than its predecessor, giving it a spacious interior and cargo volume that are among the best in class. Its motorcycle-inspired instrument cluster features an analog tachometer along with a digital speedometer and warning lights.
The center console features upmarket blue backlighting that highlights the front cabinâ€™s wrap-around fascia, which can be color-coordinated and flows from the dash into both the driver's and front passengerâ€™s doors.
