China’s Chevrolet Onix Redline Detailed, Packs 123HP 1.0L Three-Cylinder

Chevrolet has released further details about the all-new Onix compact sedan following its world debut at the Shanghai Auto Show.

Chinese customers can already order the Chevy Onix Redline, which is available in two versions priced from RMB 96,900 ($14,500) and RMB 99,900 ($14,900), respectively. Following the introduction of the Redline, additional variants will be added in the coming months.

Built by the SAIC-GM joint venture, the all-new Onix launches in sporty Redline trim that brings red and black design cues such as the black bow tie emblems and dual-grille design, as well as horizontal red accents on the grille and mirror caps and black 16-inch alloys.

Inside, Chevrolet claims its sedan offers segment-leading space for rear passengers, 22 storage locations throughout the cabin, and a cargo volume of 469 liters (16.5 cu-ft).

The new Onix is the first of many new Chevrolet and Buick B- and C-segment vehicles to use the GEM (Global Emerging Markets) platform. Power comes from a 1.0-liter Ecotec 325T turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 123 hp (125 PS) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft) of torque. Mated to a six-speed Dynamic Start/Stop Shift (DSS) automatic transmission, it offers a claimed average fuel consumption of 4.9 liters/100 km (48 mpg US) and meets the China 6 emission standard.

When it comes to standard features, the highlight is the MyLink infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay, Baidu CarLife, OnStar Intelligent Link and the Xiao O intelligent driving assistant. Also included in the base price are a 3.5-inch driver information display, leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, sports seats, and an air purification system.

The list of standard safety systems features ESC, ABS, EBD, TCS, and Hill Start Assist, while options include a backup camera, reverse radar, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and ISOFIX locks for child safety seats.

    “Global Emerging Markets” platform…I’ll bet that thing is “structurally sound” for crash testing – NOT

      Global-poor countries, Emerging-we can still ignore them if they sue, Markets-they now have a little money.

        well you know GM does not care. Their in it for the money , they don’t care about people, aka their employees, their customers. It’s all about how cheap can they make burning pile of crap.

          All companies are in it for the money. They might say differently, right up until things start to go bad. Then they run up against the reality that they better be making money or it’s over.

    Just a new way of milking few more bucks.

    Something akin to this would be a welcome addition to the Chevy fleet (once the dealers start screaming about no affordable vehicles to sell, other than the diminutive Spark), now with the death of both the Cruze and Sonic. Interesting that GM has joined the 3-cylinder party.
