Thumbs down South Korean Chevy Import?

Ok, so I run across this in the local paper... Chevy seemingly teamed up with Daewoo of S. Korea and produced a compact Euro designed sedan or hatchback for the American market, Aveo. Sounds mildly familiar... too bad it looks like hell. It's a very inexpensive import under the name of an American giant, what do you guys think? If I see one cruising around I don't know what I'll do, besides beat its 1.6L, 103hp engine if it tries anything!

Here's the article, originally from the Orlando Sentinel:

And here's Chevy's Aveo site:

Looks kind of like those Suzuki AERO's.

Well, Chevy did sell those GEO line of cars in the 90's so I'm not surprised that they teamed up with another cheap car manufacturer to create another econocar to compete with the Kia and Hyundai's....
It surely doesn't compare to the Focus, which now comes equipped with a Zetec engine for the base engine.

It does look a lot like the Suzuki, and as far as Chevy's past history goes- who doesn't love a Geo?? Oh poor misled Chevy people... when will they learn?

I didn't remember that the newer Foci have dropped the SPI, for the Focus family!

I thought the echo looked silly when it first came out. This thing is just ugly. I can't see it making it...at Focus prices......no comparison.

I think it looks neat, and here in Canada, they're a few thousand bucks less than the Focus. I'm a sucker for tiny cars like that, and the Vitz, and the C2 and the Smart car.
