Chevrolet's Aveo sedan and hatchback has been bolstered by the addition of a new automatic gearbox.

The five-door hatchback and four-door sedan models bearing the LS designation now come with the option of a four-speed automatic transmission.

This gearbox is mated with a 1.5-litre powerplant producing 62 kW at 5 600 r/min and 128 Nm at 3 000 r/min.

Standard features included in the LS specification include air conditioning, power steering, front power windows, dual airbags, ABS, high-mounted third brake light, central locking and an immobiliser.

Irrespective of bodystyle, the Aveo automatic costs R126 900. The new model is added to a range that was well received in the recent Synovate Quality Study.
