The Chevrolet Aveo will be debuted at the Paris Motor Show next month, which could be the upcoming Holden Barina as previously mentioned.

In standard Chevrolet Aveo form, the car is said to feature much of the same chunky body design features as the sporty-looking Aveo RS Concept model. Reports say Chevrolet is aiming to place the car into the small hatch market sector as a strong competitor, offering plenty of standard equipment throughout the range.

Chevrolet has confirmed the car will offer stability control and ABS brakes as standard as well as feature an energetic interior with an instrument cluster that resembles a motorcycle-like gauge setup.

Wayne Brannon, Chevrolet Europe head, said in a recent Automotive News report, that the new model “is ready to compete against the best in the small car segment, which is also Europe’s largest segment’. Sources say the car will be offered with a 1.3-litre diesel engine with stop/start technology to win over the European demands.

There’s been no confirmation that this Chev will be the next Holden Barina but it’s worth mentioning that the original Chevrolet Aveo RS Concept was actually built here in Australia at Holden’s Port Melbourne factory. Our bet is that this will be the 2011 Holden Barina.
