Test mule is a new derivative of the Onix.

The Chevrolet Onix was unveiled at the 2012 Sao Paulo Auto Show and went on sale in Brazil in November 2012. Three years later, Chevrolet is working on the new Chevrolet Onix (facelift), as seen in these spyshots, originally published by Autoblog Argentina.

The new derivative of the Chevrolet Onix seen in the spyshot is the Chevrolet Onix Activ.

The engineering mule in the spyshots is not the standard Chevrolet Onix, it’s a jacked-up derivative of the car. With the facelift, Chevrolet is going to introduce an adventure variant of the Onix with increased ground clearance and possibly a little rugged character with all-around body cladding. The Argentinian publication says that this variant will be called ‘Chevrolet Onix Activ’.

The new Chevrolet Onix (facelift) as well as its sedan version – the new Chevrolet Prisma (facelift), are expected to get an updated front fascia inspired by that of second generation Cruze. There’s no speak on any mechanical changes.

The current Chevrolet Onix is offered with two engine options. The base engine is a 1.0-litre four-cylinder flex-fuel unit that produces 80 CV (58.8 kW/78.9 hp) running on ethanol and 78 CV (57.4 kW/ 76.9 hp) running on petrol and 96 Nm of torque running on ethanol and 93 Nm of torque running on petrol. This engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

The second engine is a 1.4-litre four-cylinder flex-fuel unit that produces 106 CV (77.9 kW/104.5 hp) running on ethanol and 98 CV (72.1 kW/96.7 hp) running on petrol and 136 Nm of torque running on ethanol and 127 Nm of torque running on petrol. This engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, but can be opted with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
