The new Chevrolet Aveo has taken the 2011 ‘best in class’ award in the competitive Supermini market as judged by Euro NCAP. The new Chevrolet Aveo secured 85 out of a possible 100 points; the judges were impressed with the adult and child occupant protection where it scored 95 and 87 percent respectively.

The Aveo is equipped with six standard airbags that are connected to the sensors mounted into the middle of the car. It also features a child-seat latching system. The car's active safety systems include electronic stability control, traction control, a four-channel anti-lock braking system with brake assist, and electronic brake force distribution. Hill-start assist and cruise control with a speed limiter function are also among the Aveo's impressive standard features.

Alongside the new Aveo, Chevrolet’s model line-up features four more Euro NCAP five star cars; the Cruze, Captiva and Orlando all carry the accolade. The Chevrolet Aveo delivers value for money priced from £9,995. It is available in three trim levels: LS, LT and LTZ.
