Based on the flashy Aveo RS Concept, the '12 Aveo has the hot hatch good looks to make a splash in the highly competitive B-segment. But it takes substance to really leave a mark, and for the tuning scene it takes performance potential. GM has had a hard time cracking the sport compact nut, and its trials and tribulations may well continue with the new Aveo, which will hit American showrooms in 2011. The biggest engine in the lineup currently and the most likely to come to America is a 115hp 1.6-liter. The General could really break through by adding a turbo, or building a turbo-Ecotec-powered SS version.
