General Motors has been very active in recent months in China. His novelties began to sound a bit short on our Pacific side as a result of the global brand strategy. For MexicoIn particular, it seems that the startup in the subcompact segment is terrifying: Chevrolet Onix.
The Onix Last weeks he was caught with camouflage. Our reader Fernando Salcido shares with us the image of a car that is still covered to keep its identity secret. We do not know with certainty when it will for sale in Mexico, but everything points to what will be before the end of the year.
The Chevrolet Onix will be placed between Aveo and Cavalier, to compete in the segment of subcompact sedans of the high class. Its 4,47 meters long would place it in front of the KIA Rio Sedan, Honda City, Mazda 2 Sedan, Hyundai Accent and Volkswagen Virtus, which will be presented shortly.
We do not know the engine with which it will be available. In the domestic market he uses a 1.0-liter triple turbocharger, which can generate 123 KM and 133 lb-ft. At the level of equipment, we can expect a compatible infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, OnStar, leather details, tire pressure monitor, four airbags, ABS brakes, stability control and start assist.
The price This is one of the great strangers. With a range of Chevrolet Aveo between 190,000 and 250,000 pesos and a Cavalier between 260,000 and 320,000 pesos, there seems little space for the third model. We estimate the price range of 230,000 to 290,000 pesos.
