Chevrolet Aveo RS to go into production in 2011

A number of outlets are reporting that the turbocharged Aveo RS is indeed going into production. Undoubtedly, many of the features will not transition from the concept to the production model (huge wheels, massive brakes, etc.). However, allegedly, Chevy is saying the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine (making apparently 138 hp and 148 ft./lbs. of torque) will make it into production as is.

Chevy is also saying the Aveo RS will slot between the lower-level Chevy Spark and the compact Chevy Cruze (which will also have the 1.4-turbo engine).

What I haven't seen or read is whether or not the Aveo RS will be a Korean-built Daewoo, of if this will be on a different platform built somewhere else. Regardless, this car could make things interesting, especially if priced right.
