The Chevrolet Onix is a subcompact car launched by American automaker Chevrolet in Brazil at the 2012 São Paulo International Motor Show[1] to succeed Chevrolet Corsa and some versions of Chevrolet Celta. Made in Gravataí, the Onix is a five-door hatchback. A sedan version is sold as the Chevrolet Prisma. The Onix is currently only sold in some member states of Mercosur, including Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.
