The US firm has announced a new Korean-built hot hatch, which is set to join the Kalos line-up before the end of the year.<p>It's based on the new three-door - driven by Auto Express this week - and is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine. Developing around 140bhp, the model is expected to appeal to younger buyers looking for a hot hatch with affordable insurance premiums.Clues <br> <br> ADVERTISEMENT <br> <br>about the styling were given by a sporty Irmscher model revealed when the car was still badged a Daewoo. The Chevy will get a bodykit, sports seats and 16-inch alloys. A cheaper 1.4-litre version is also likely.<p>Plans to expand the brand further include new diesels, due this year.

It was called the Aveo Xtreme... and oddly enough, the article about in on A.E. was called "Super Kalos Goes Ballistic" (Wednesday 5th November 2003) as well... my bad.<p><br>Well in any event, count me out. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

y would they waste a good title?

Haha, I suppose it's just about the only thing that can be said about a Tricked-out Kalos. It defies logic.

Yes. Trust me though, people actually do trick out these kind of cars. The simple thought of Ford Ka's with body kits should be enough to make you cringe, but there are a ton of them out there. Just like the 206, Polo, Focus, Kalos. May as well save the kids some work and sell some like that from the factory. Could make even more selling flame and tribal decals in colors that clash with the paint at the dealership as well.
