Pretending to be a new Chevrolet Cavalier Monza sedan turned out to be noticeably more expensive than its predecessor

3

The relatively fresh four-door, which used to be a Chinese exclusive, is now also available in Mexico, albeit under a different name. There, the model is offered with a non-alternative “turbo engine", you won’t be able to choose a box either.

The budget sedan, for which the Cavalier name was revived, appeared in the Chevy range five years ago. The release of the model was launched in China at the plant of the joint venture of General Motors and SAIC concerns, only there it was first sold. However, later, locally assembled cars began to be delivered to Mexico and some other Latin American countries, but Cavalier, on the contrary, left China. But in 2018, the “celestial” line of Chevrolet was replenished with a larger “four-door” Monza (this name was also taken from the archive), and it was also previously considered a model addressed only to China. Now this sedan is also deprived of its exclusive status: a version for the Mexican market is presented, only “their” car is not a Monza at all, but a “brand new Cavalier Turbo”. Apparently, the company is counting on the fact that a familiar name will attract more customers.

In terms of design, the “four-door” intended for Mexico is no different from the Chinese version. In addition, like the Monza, the new Cavalier, along with the “simple” LS and LT trim levels, has a “sported” RS version, its features are its own bumpers and grille, original wheels (although they are 16-inch, like the base model ; however, the predecessor had only 15-inch ones), made in black, the emblem of the brand and exterior mirror housings, plus red stitching in the cabin. By the way, in China you can still buy a Redline version with red accents on the outside, but this is not yet allowed for the Mexican sedan.
