At the 2012 International Auto Show of Sao Paulo , GM unveiled the new Chevrolet Onix hatchback for the Brazilian market and we’re glad that it won’t be available in the United tates.
The compact Chevrolet Onix hatchback is powered by a 1,0 liter or 1.4 liter engine and is mated to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
“We looked to create a car with high levels of design, comfort and technology that will exceed customer expectations,” said Chevrolet Marketing Director Gustavo Colosi.
The new hatchback wears a softer and friendlier design than the small cars that Chevrolet offers in the United States. It borrows styling cues from Chevrolet's global design language and it features a slightly raised ground clearance to tackle poorly-paved roads.
Since the Onix will compete in a segment where buyers primarily seek the most bang for the buck, Chevrolet will offer the car with an optional MyLink infotainment system that is controlled by a dash-mounted seven-inch touch screen, a feature that is rare in its class. All trim levels will come standard with ABS brakes and dual front airbags.
Buyers will be asked to choose between a 1.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is rated 80 horsepower and a 1.4-liter four-banger that makes 106 ponies. The bigger engine will be offered with a six-speed automatic transmission, another segment first. As is the norm in Brazil, both engines can burn either ethanol or on gasoline.
The Onix is scheduled to go on sale throughout Brazil before the end of the year. It will carry a base price of 29,990 Brazilian reals, which converts to roughly $15,000.
Chevrolet is not the only manufacturer that is eager to dethrone Volkswagen and Fiat in Brazil. Hyundai recently unveiled the HB20, a Latin America-only hatchback that is aimed at the same segment.
