The Onix Activ clearly takes a badge from the Chevrolet Beat Activ concept, which was shown for the Indian market. That model featured soft-road cues like more aggressive tires and a higher ground clearance. A similar formula has been applied here.
The 2017 Onix Activ features a unique suspension and also gains a slightly higher ground clearance; the Onix Activ is 1.18-inches higher than its more pedestrian counterpart. To look the part, cladding has been added to the side skirts, and front and rear fascias to provide protection against the lesser-taken path.
The Onix Activ will arrive only with the latest 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine, and may be paired to either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. Look for the Onix Activ to arrive alongside the regular Onix at the end of this month.
