These Photoshop pictures of the 2012 Chevrolet Aveo sedan were apparently released by mistake. The family sub-compact actually looks quite good.

According to General Motors, these official images of the next-generation 2012 Chevrolet Aveo sedan were released unintentionally. They are not real-life stills but retouched illustrations originally from Chevy's studios.

It looks quite attractive and signals Chevy's intentions to create cars that people want to look at and ultimately buy. In fact the exterior resembles the racy-looking Aveo RS Concept which was unveiled in Detroit, while the two-tone interior undoubtedly takes after big brother Cruze. This bodes well.

The Aveo is a line of vehicles that sit lower than the Cruze but higher than the Spark on the Chevrolet pecking order. So expect the sedan to come with the same engines as its existing hatch sibling when it arrives in 2011.
