The first-generation Chevrolet Onix was offered in three model variants: sedan, hatchback and the rugged Activ. So far, the second-generation Onix is only offered in two different body styles, with General Motors having dropped the Activ model variant this time around.
But what would a second-generation Chevrolet Onix Activ look like if GM were to green-light such a model? Thankfully, we don’t have to rely on our imaginations to find out. The Brazilian automotive rendering experts over at K Design AG recently tried their hand at rendering a new Chevrolet Onix Activ, and we think the finished result is a fairly accurate representation of what such a model might look like if it ever reached production.
This theoretical Chevrolet Onix Activ is based on the five-door hatchback Onix and features a lifted suspension, a faux front skid plate, roof rails, a more pronounced liftgate spoiler and Activ badging. The wheels here also appear to be pulled off the new Chevrolet Trailblazer Activ and are shod in the same Hankook Dynapro AT2 off-road tires as that model as well.
The Chevrolet Onix is only available in emerging markets such as Brazil, Mexico and the Middle East. The vehicle is offered with a range of three-cylinder engines, depending on the market where it is sold, which range from 82 to 130 horsepower. That output is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. It rides on GM’s new Global Emerging Markets architecture, also known as the GEM platform, which was developed specifically for developing markets like Brazil.
