If you were hoping to see the 2020 Chevrolet Onix here in the US, you will be disappointed as GM gave an updated on the subcompact sedan.
The all-new Chevrolet Onix will now be built at their San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico and Chevrolet will be offering the vehicle in Mexico as well as a few other Latin American market but not the US.
This is the same plant that GM is now using to build the Chevrolet Equinox, Chevrolet Trax, and GMC Terrain. GM did cut one of the three shift in the plant but with the Onix arriving, they should be the third shift back.
The Chevrolet Onix will come riding on the GEM platform and when we saw it in China, it was fitted with a 1.0-liter EcoTec 325T turbocharged three-cylinder engine that was offering about 123hp and 133lb ft of torque and was mated to a six-speed Dynamic Start/Stop Shift auto transmission. No word on whether this will be carried over to the production model.
Other features like the reverse parking assistance, backup camera, brake assist and more will be offered as standard.
