After starting exports of the vehicle from China to Mexico at the end of May, General Motors has just launched the 2023 Chevy Onix with several new features in the Latin American country, including a new range-topping variant.
The automaker announced that the 2023 Chevy Onix will introduce a new Premier Redline trim level, combining the two highest standalone trims offered on the vehicle in Mexico and China. In addition, the 2023 Chevy Onix manufactured at the GM Dong Yue plant will arrive in the Mexican market with a new entry-level engine.
“Chevrolet Onix is one of the vehicles that has come to set new standards in the subcompact segment, and our customers have enjoyed its complete level of equipment and performance,” said Marketing Manager for Chevrolet at GM Mexico, Wilberto del Ángel, in a statement. “With the new Premier Redline 2023 version, we are meeting the needs of the client who is looking for a more attractive design while maintaining the levels of safety and connectivity characteristic of Onix,” he added.
The all-new 2023 Chevy Onix Premier Redline adopts the Chinese-market Redline trim’s configuration, highlighted by blacked-out elements and red accents around the vehicle. Additionally, the 2023 Onix will be offered in the usual LS and LT trims.
The base powerplant will be the new naturally aspirated 1.3L I3 engine that develops 101 horsepower and 96 pound-feet of torque, matched to a five-speed manual transmission. The turbocharged 1.0L I3 engine that delivers 116 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque, managed by a six-speed automatic transmission, will be standard on the better-equipped versions.
The 2023 Chevy Onix Premier Redline will go on sale in Mexico at the end of July, exclusively as a four-door sedan and with an extensive list of technology and safety features. In contrast to Onix’s reduced connectivity features in Brazil, the model made in China maintains the on-board 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, Android Auto, and smartphone wireless charging.
