Winner of the Why Would You? Award…
The badge sums it up. Wedged helplessly between the two halves of the grille, looking like a hasty, apologetic afterthought (“What’s that, Dave? We forgot the badge? Just stick it, er, there…”).
It’s a nasty, tacky bit of design that neatly encapsulates everything that’s wrong with the Aveo, a car so tired and uninspiring that it can legally be prescribed to serial insomniacs to help them ‘get a decent bit of kip’.
If the new Ford Fiesta is the iPhone of superminis – sleek, gadgety, good-looking – the Aveo is a pair of stained polystyrene cups held together by a frayed shoelace.
Slow, lazy and boring to drive, it boasts all the originality of a Kerry Katona lookalike, and is about as likely to impress your mates. And, unlike said Kerry Katona lookalike, the Aveo isn’t even cheap. Avoid.
