TTAC frontrunner Michigan has won the Chevy Viva sweepstakes and will be hosting production of the Aveo replacement, reports the Freep. The new compact will be based on Chevrolet’s Spark world car, and produced at the Orion Township plant near Pontiac. Orion currently produces Malibu and G6 sedans. The plan reportedly saves 1,200 jobs at the Orion plant which had been marked for death. Sorry, Wisconsin and Tennessee!

    So GM has no clue how to design smaller headlights for a smaller car? Why not just make the entire hood and both A-pillars into headlights? Sorry GM. Fail.

    UIts amazing how much people dont know about cars on this site. If many of ou recall GM had a poll to build this car between 2 other models and this one won out so you can expect this car to do well becuse it was picked by America.
