Default Upcoming Chevrolet Onix RS Leaked In Brazil


Some General Motors employees in Brazil leaked pictures of the Chevrolet Onix RS, an all-new sporty variant of the brandís successful compact car, which is scheduled to launch soon in South America. The workers published snapshots of the upcoming Onix RS on social media, seen completely uncovered in the parking lot of the GM GravataŪ assembly plant.

The Chevrolet Onix RS, which rides on the GM GEM platform for global developing markets, is the most aggressively styled variant of the second-generation model, which will only be offered in five-door hatchback configuration. Compared to the run-of-the-mill Onix, the RS stands out with an aerodynamic body kit and an exclusive interior finish, but wonít include any mechanical upgrades.

The front end of this new Chevrolet Onix variant receives a specific front grille with a mesh-like interior pattern and a glossy back finish, giving it a sportier edge. In addition, The Onix RS includes dark headlight clusters and more prominent lower bumper moldings.

At the rear, the large hatch-mounted spoiler and the bumper diffuser Ė which are exclusive to the RS Ė are particularly striking. The sporty exterior appearance of the Chevrolet Onix RS is complemented by lower-body moldings, black alloy wheels and black Bow Tie logos.

The picture of the Onix RSís cockpit reveals a completely black color scheme on the dashboard and door panels, along with red bezels around the air vents to add some contrast. The seats and the steering wheel are similarly spruced up with red contrast stitching.

The upcoming Chevrolet Onix RS is expected to be equipped with a turbocharged, 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission. As is the case in the regular Onix, this powertrain produces 116 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque.

It seems as though GM is ready to launch the Chevrolet Onix RS in the Brazilian market, which should occur within the next few weeks. The five-door hatchback being the only Onix body style to receive the new trim level, and since itís only manufactured in Brazil, itís highly unlikely that the new RS version will be marketed outside of South America.

As we previously announced, GM has announced the Chevrolet Onix sedan for the Mexican market in addition to launching the Onix in the Middle East. Meanwhile, the brand offers an equally sporty Chevrolet Onix Redline in China.
