SEATBELT REMINDER PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION ADDITIONAL INFORMATION The Aveo scored enough points overall to qualify for three stars but Euro NCAP requires a minimum level of performance in each of the frontal and side impacts. No points were awarded for the protection offered to the feet and ankles. a face-lifted version of the Chevrolet/Daewoo Kalos. SIDE IMPACT CHILD PROTECTION The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be placed in the front passenger's seat.Chevrolet Aveo COMMENTS FRONTAL IMPACT Structural deformation and spot-weld release indicated that the bodyshell had been overloaded and had become unstable. As a result. It has been indicated that the face-lift includes improvements in safety and Euro NCAP can only conclude that the safety performance of the Kalos will not be as good as the Aveo. Chevrolet have since provided us with additional information which increases the score to 39 points and the rating to four stars. Rearward movement of the A-pillar was penalised. The car did not score enough points in frontal impact to be awarded three stars. but now understand that the Kalos will continue to be available as a three/five door version until 2008. The driver's chest made contact with the steering-wheel. NOTE: The child protection rating of the Aveo was originally 31 points and three stars. In any case. However. Euro NCAP has assessed the performance of the Chevrolet Aveo. The presence of the ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly indicated.
