Chevrolet Onyx 2019 – Chevrolet Onyx budget sedan
The new Chevrolet Onyx budget sedan is preparing for its official premiere at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2019 and entering the Chinese market this summer. Overview of the Chevrolet Onyx 2019-2020 – photo, price, equipment and specifications compact, budget 4-door sedan, replacing the Chevrolet Cavalier. The price of the new design has not yet been announced by the manufacturer, but according to preliminary information, it will be 78,000-105,000 yuan (748-1007 thousand conventional units).
The new 2019-2020 Chevrolet Onyx model can be called a new car with a very big stretch. In fact, before we modernized the Chevy Cavalier with tweaked exterior and updated interior. And Onyx even slightly decreased in status compared to Cavalier (body sizes are smaller and less powerful engines). Production of the Chevrolet Onyx will be launched in early May 2019 at JLLC Zavod Gupt-GM. Interestingly, in addition to the local Chinese market, the novelty will be sold in other markets (Asia, Central and South America, Africa).
The new Chevrolet Onyx sedan is built on a shortened and somewhat simplified Delta platform, acquiring the new first-generation Chevrolet Cruze. By the way, the Chevrolet Cavalier sedan is based on this “cart". So the scheme is simple and budget suspension (front MacPherson strut, rear beam bends) and rear drum brakes are archaic.
- The external dimensions of the Chevrolet Onyx 2019-2020 body are 4474 mm long, 1730 mm wide, 1471 mm high, 2600 mm wheelbase.
- For a budget sedan, they offered 15-16 inch alloy wheels with 195/65 R15 and 195/55 R16 tires on.
In the review of the new budget sedan of the Chinese division of General Motors, they presented an osportivlennoy version of the Chevrolet Onyx "redline" (gray car), but for comparison, we provide our readers with photos of the basic version of the Chevrolet Onyx (white car).
It is worth noting that the appearance of the base, and hints at the sports version of the sedan, do not stand out for anything outstanding. Yes, to be honest, you should not expect original design solutions from a budget car. Everything is simple, ordinary and not noticeable. Closing the Chevrolet logo on the false grille and onyx sedan trunk cover can easily be adopted on budget Ford, Hyundai or Kia models. As messed up in recent years in automotive design, this is a budget model, regardless of the brand look like twins.
Thus, the new Chevrolet Onyx is compact with sports headlights, a huge false radiator grille, a massive front bumper with an aerodynamic body kit, a hood with longitudinal ribs, rounded wheel arches, swollen surfaces of the wings and doors, with a high stern, decorated with a horizontal ceiling of position lights with LED materials.
I want to add that the basic version of the Chevrolet Onyx looks frankly boring. But the playful Chevrolet Onyx redline sedan looks fun due to black tones with bright red decorative accents (radiator grille, rims, rear-view mirror housings, Chevrolet emblem, spoiler and pseudo diffuser).
Not too long ago in China, the Chevrolet Monza sedan got almost identical to the Chevrolet Onyx in looks, but looks better (probably due to the larger dimensions and more original plastic body parts), and the engines are interesting.
The interior of the new Chevrolet Onyx budget sedan generally looks modern. Affordable three-spoke multi-function steering wheel, informative instrument panel with analogue tachometer and speedometer scales complemented by an easy-to-read on-board computer display, a fairly modern infotainment system with an 8-inch color touchscreen dominating the front (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, bluetooth, USB, radio, navigation, rear view camera), a simple and logical climate control unit, a control unit, sports seats in the first row with lateral support and integrated into the head restraints.
The sedan also boasts a sunroof, lots of storage compartments for small items scattered throughout the cabin, and a fairly spacious trunk that can take 469 liters of cargo volume.
