The Chevrolet Onix was Brazil’s best-selling vehicle in August 2015, selling 10,999 units during the month. This is the first time that the small hatchback has occupied the best-selling position since its launch three years ago.
In addition, the Onix has sold over 70,000 units during the first eight months of 2015, making it the best-selling model in the retail space (which excludes sales to fleets and businesses).
Those not intricately familiar with the Onix will appreciate knowing that it’s a subcompact five-door hatchback based on GM’s global Gamma II platform shared with the Sonic/Aveo five-door hatchback. Launched in 2012, the vehicle was developed by GM Brazil for developing markets and is sold in various markets in Central and South America as a low-cost alternative to the Sonic. The four-door sedan variant of the Onix is sold as the Prisma.
