Want a clue to what the next generation Chev Aveo will look like? Cue the RS concept, currently on show in Detroit.

Although the new Aveo is only likely to be unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March (or even later) the disarming RS concept shown by GM in Detroit this week does lead some clues of what to expect.

Expect all the aesthetic embellishments (centre-mounted dual exhausts, C-pillar integrated hidden door-handles and drilled brake rotors with illuminated cooling ducts) to be deleted for the production version.

The sombre, yet neatly executed, cabin architecture should survive homologation though. We hope the 1.4l turbocharged engine (101kW/200Nm) and six-speed manual transmission does too.
