Chevrolet Agile - Click above for a high-res image gallery
This fall, our friends to the south will have a new hatch to choose from when the all-new Chevrolet Agile hits the market. GM released a few sketches of the new compact five-door ahead of its official unveiling, complete with Chevy's two-tier grille, angular headlamps and a strong shoulder line flowing over the front wheel arches and through to its sculpted haunches.
The Agile was developed entirely in Brazil, and production is set to begin in a few months at GM's manufacturing center in Argentina. It's also likely that the Gamma II-based B-segment hatch will be built at the General's Lake Orion, Michigan facility and what we're looking at is the next generation Aveo, due to arrive sometime in 2011.
Coming in at just over 98 inches long and powered by a choice of either a 105-hp 1.4-liter or a 129-hp 1.8-liter, the Agile may finally provide GM with a competent competitor to the 2010 Ford Fiesta when it arrives in the U.S. Make the jump for the (Google-translated) press release.
