Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Our good friends at Nocticias Automotivas have managed to bust the Chevrolet Onix ahead on its launch in Brazil.

The Chevrolet Onix is GM’s hatchback protagonist in Brazil and we are very much interested in cars that are made for the Brazilians for a one strong reason. The Latin American country has a striking similarity with India when it comes to customer and technical requirements, not to mention the affordability factor.

The Onix is a high riding hatchback based on the GM’s GSV platform that also underpins the Chevrolet Beat. In Brazil it has got the company of VW Gol, the recently launched Hyundai HB20, Fiat Palio and the likes.

The big hatchback has strong dimensions, the headlamps and the prominent twin port grill with the bow tie badge are clearly inspired by the Cruze and that’s not a bad thing at all. The detailing in the headlamps have a blue tint and looks cool, adding to the visual appeal are the lower air dam and the chrome accented fog lamp housings.

The car looks decent in profile view with the strong waistline taking good care of reducing the visual bulk. The wheel arches are slightly flared and the dual color alloy wheels complement the looks. Note the low cost door handles.

The shape of the tail lamps also takes cues from the cruze but the detailing is different. The large semicircular rear windshield is good for visibility and the curvacious rear fascia feels a bit bulky.

The interior is a typical Chevy thing. The car will be equipped with GM’s Mylink multimedia system.

Powering the Onix will be 1.0 litre and 1.4 litre flex fuel engines mated to either a five-speed manual or an automatic six speeder.

The Chevy Onix is expected to be launched on Oct 21 in Brazil. While there are no immediate plans for India, we can’t help but think that it would appeal to Indians more than the Sail.
