2005 Chevrolet Aveo Overview

The 2005 Chevrolet Aveo was one of the smallest and most affordable compact cars in the U.S. market at the time. As a successor to the longlived Chevy Cavalier, the '05 Aveo targeted first-time buyers and drivers looking for a good deal.

Available in two body styles, hatchback and sedan, the 2005 Aveo was offered in three trims: Special Value (the base, no-frills version), LS, and LT. Unsurprisingly, few features come standard, especially on the Special Value trim.

This tiny subcompact is powered by a 1.6-liter inline-4 engine with an output of 103 horsepower and 107 lb.-ft. of torque. Still, that's enough power to take a minicar like the Aveo around the roads with ease.

And the car's fuel economy speaks for itself (and may be the best argument for buying a 2005 Chevy Aveo). EPA rated at 27 mpg city/35 mpg highway, the '05 Aveo is one of the most fuel efficient cars in its class.
