    Aveo RS 3-Door

    I shortened the wheelbase a bit, stretched the front door, slightly altered the roofline on the front, not much, and reshaped the rear door into what's now the hatch. Oh, and most obviously I swapped the color. Comments, critiques, and suggestions are welcomed.

    Heh. Rear door handle's still on the C-pillar.

    Good job though.

    You forgot the door handle in the window frame. Otherwise, it looks pretty good. I see it got red eyes with the colour swap as well.

    Very cool... although what is the likelihood of a 3-door appearing when the 5 door conveys the same image?

    Yeah, normally I cut out all of the areas besides the body in a duplicate layer and change color that way, but this time, with the blue in the headlight I did an even faster way by selecting a specific color range.
    As for the handle, it's um, the port for the Voltec plug-in. Ha, take that!

    OK, I'm fixing it, gimme a sec.

    I know, you're probably right, but my motto has been the only thing that looks good with four doors is two cars.

    I'd say you're right... when a 5-door looks that good and is much more useful, why bother with a 3-door? That said a 3-door version of the current Aveo is available outside the US. Not sure if it's very popular, I know that while I don't see many Aveo's, a fair number are 3-doors.

    If it represents a significant percentage of current Aveo sales there's a good chance they'll do another one. Then again Chevy sells a boatload of 2-door Cavaliers and we all know that there's no 2-door Cruze coming anytime soon, so who knows?!?

    Oh, and the left-over rear door handle could be where they hide the plug to recharge the electric version!

    Hmmm, just thought of something... might cost a fortune to design, but it would be cool if they did a Saturn SC / Ion-like quad coupe with mini 'suicide' doors!

    It looks great, good work...but my biggest issue with the new Aveo is where the front license plate is going to go on that overly large grill???

    I agree. One of the ugliest current car designs are these tiny 5 door cars that look like they are all doors. For some reason they always remind me of those trucks used to carrying windshields that drive around carrying 3 or 4 per side.

    I like that... and possibly 3 in some special cases.

    All this is making wonder what the 3-door version of the Astra will be like.

    I'd wish GM would make 2-door hatchbacks again but , the new Aveo is just to nice to alter with, I like your chop but I'd prefer it to be made only as a 4-door. 9/10.

    I think Chevy needs a 2-door compact, and the Aveo has a more youthful design than the Cruze, so why not?

    It's a good chop...don't get me wrong.

    However, I still question why you'd need a 3-door Aveo in the first place! The regular new Aveo looks like a three-door anyway...you can barely see the door handles in the back. Cutting out the back doors would only impede access to an already tiny hatchback.
