The Chevrolet Onix is a subcompact car launched by American automaker Chevrolet in Brazil at the 2012 São Paulo International Motor Show[1] and the second generation in China at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. In Brazil, it was launched to succeed Chevrolet Corsa and some versions of Chevrolet Celta. Produced in General Motors Brazil’s plants in Gravataí and São Caetano do Sul, the Onix is a five-door hatchback. A sedan version is sold as the Chevrolet Onix Plus in Brazil, and the Onix sedan in Colombia.[2] The Onix was Brazil's best selling car for 59 consecutive months (almost 5 years) from August 2015 to June 2020, until being usurped by the VW T-Cross in July 2020.[3] The Onix was also Latin America’s best selling car in the year 2018, with sales of over 249,552 units.[4]

The first generation Onix was available in three trim levels (LS, LT and LTZ) with two 4-cylinder engines, the 1.0-liter producing 78 PS (57 kW; 77 bhp) (gasoline)/80 PS (59 kW; 79 bhp) (ethanol) and 1.4-liter 98 PS (72 kW; 97 bhp) (gasoline)/106 PS (78 kW; 105 bhp) (ethanol) offering automatic or five-speed manual transmission. In Brazil, the 4-door sedan variant was known as the Chevrolet Prisma.

For 2017, the Onix and Prisma received a facelift, along with interior improvements.[5] A touchscreen was added with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. The LS trim level kept the original front end and became known as the Onix Joy and Prisma Joy, leaving the LT as the base trim for the updated Onix/Prisma. A crossover-like version called the Onix Activ was also added, with raised suspension, plastic body cladding and roof rack.

In late 2019, the Onix and Prisma were replaced in Brazil by the Chinese second-generation Onix and Onix Plus, respectively. However, the Onix Joy and Prisma Joy remained available, and were renamed Joy and Joy Plus, respectively.

Technical details

Specs include front-wheel drive, MacPherson strut front and twist-beam rear suspension, and (in the three versions shown) dual airbags, ABS and power steering. In February 2013, the new Prisma, the sedan version of the Onix, with a trunk of 500 liters, was launched.[6]

The 1.0 versions are fitted with 14" wheels, with 15" fitted to the 1.4 models.


In December 2014, the Chevrolet Onix was evaluated under the Latin NCAP assessment and achieved a 3-star safety rating for adults and 2-star safety rating for children:[7]

Test Score Points
Adult 62.76% (3-star) 10.67 out of 17
Children 41.10% (2-star) 20.14 out of 49

In May 2017, the Chevrolet Onix was re-evaluated under the Latin NCAP assessment, using the 2016 Assessment Protocol, and achieved a 0-star safety rating for adults and 3-star safety for children.[8]

Test Score Points
Adult 0.00% (0-star) 0.00 out of 34

In April 2019, a new sedan named the Onix was launched in China with the Chinese name "科沃兹"; Kēwòzī .[10] The Onix replaces both the Sonic and Cavalier in the Chinese market, and is slightly larger than the Prisma/Onix sedan. It uses the GEM (Global Emerging Markets) platform.

The Onix is offered in China with a turbocharged, direct-injected 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine, rated at 92 kW (123 hp) and 180 N⋅m (133 lb⋅ft) torque. Fuel economy is rated at 4.9 L/100 km (48 mpg‑US). A naturally aspirated 1.0 L 3-cylinder engine is due to follow. Brazilian versions resort to port-injection for both the turbocharged and the naturally aspirated versions.

The first version of the Onix to debut was the Onix Redline. It features black exterior trim with red accents, and a two-tone interior.[11]

In Brazil, the new sedan debuted in September 2019 as the "Onix Plus", while the hatchback went on sale in November 2019. [12] In addition to the LT and LTZ trim levels from the previous generation, a new top-level Premier level was added. The Onix Plus was rated 5 stars by Latin NCAP.[13]

All versions of new Onix and Onix Plus have 6 airbags, ABS brakes and electronic stability control.

In 2019, the Chevrolet Onix was the best-selling car model in Brazil, for the fifth consecutive year, with a total of 268,066 sales.[14] It was also the best-selling model in Latin America.

Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay

As engines up to 1.0L are not benefitted with a lower taxation, a naturally-aspirated 1.2L engine always combined with a 5-speed manual transmission is available for the entry-level versions instead of the smaller one offered in Brazil where the Onix for Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay is made. Turbo versions retain the 1.0L displacement, while being offered with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. Other difference from the Onix sold in Brazil is the absence of flexfuel capability.


The Onix was launched in the Mexican market in spring of 2020 as well to place itself between the Cavalier and the Sail, the latter being known as Aveo in that country.[15]

LT and LS trim lines will use a 1.0-litre motor able to generate 85 kW (114 hp) and 120 lb-ft, with an option of a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission. Its top trim line, Premier, will use a 1.2-litre motor able to generate 96 kW (130 hp) and 141 lb-ft, only offered with a 6-speed automatic transmission. All motors are turbo-powered. All versions will have 6 airbags, ABS brakes and electronic stability control. In addition, other things are included, such as a 7" (17 cm) infotainment system screen, OnStar services, reverse sensor with camera, leather interior skin, and others.[16]


The second generation Onix was launched in Colombia as the "Onix Turbo" in March 2020.[17] The first generation Onix is still on sale and renamed as "Chevrolet Joy" from November 2020. The sedan version was called Onix Sedán.[18]
