Brenda Priddy's spy lenses caught this forthcoming small car offering from GM. Priddy says insiders and enthusiasts have dubbed it both the next-gneration Chevy Aveo or the Chevy Lecetti. But Priddy says that recent internet chatter has pegged it as the Chevy Viva, reported to be an American-built GM answer to the Ford Fiesta. It is currently scheduled to arrive in 2010.
As demand grows for compact fuel-efficiency, the Viva—or whatever the General decides to call it—looks to be a well-timed arrival for the New GM's lineup, and possibly for specialty-equipment companies geared for small-car accessorization and performance. Below is an artist's rendering of what the blank canvas may look like.
