The current generation of the Chevrolet Onix could be the closest to a replacement for the Metro

Unlike the Spark and Sonic which have a somewhat more minivan-like shape, the Onix has more conventional proportions.


It's only fitted with 3-cylinder engines between 1.0L and 1.2L according to each of the markets where it's already available, including turbocharged versions. Brazil only gets the 1.0L ones, while a naturally-aspirated 1.2L is bound to export for Argentina only with a manual transmission while the turbocharged 1.0L is also available with automatic transmission. AFAIK the turbocharged 1.2L is only available with the automatic.


It was initially released in China as a sedan, which is the only bodystyle available there and in Mexico.

Nearly one year and no answers, but it still seems more reasonable to put these pics here instead of another thread.

I didn't really expect to see the Onix retaining a foothold for Chevrolet on the taxi market, as the 1.0L engines place it at a tax bracket which leads to a lower tax rebate than similar models with a larger naturally-aspirated engine which in turn is cheaper to manufacture. At its favor is the ease to adapt to also run on CNG, as the Brazilian model resorts to port-injection instead of the direct injection fitted to its Chinese counterpart.

Maybe the lack of response is explained here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Onix#Markets

Sure. But anyway, even though it caters specifically to emerging markets such as China and most of Latin America, its more traditional appearance compared to the Spark and the Sonic could be supposed to attract some interest from the subcompact buyers who are quite conservative by nature.
