We've observed that the Brazilians have a very unique taste in cars. Their demand for small, stylish, and fuel efficient cars has prompted some interesting Brazil-specific models such as the Hyundai HB20 and Volkswagen Gol. And joining in the fray is Chevrolet, who recently pulled the cover off the new Onix hatchback that's specifically tailored for the colorful Samba land.
This subcompact sits on Chevy's Gamma II Global Small Vehicle (GSV) platform which it shares with the all-new Sonic. In terms of styling, it takes some cues from current roster of Chevrolets, including the brand's signature grill, but with a lot less sharp corners. Instead, they've sculpted it to be sexy and curvy just like their women.
