Chevrolet's new SUV has a 1.0 3-cylinder turbo engine, the same as the Tracker and Onix, which runs on gasoline, but will come as a Flex in Brazil. This engine generates up to 115 horsepower!

New Onix SUV? It seems so! General Motors recently announced investments in Brazil for the development of new flex hybrid technologies and even new cars. The automaker has increasingly stood out in the country with its successful models, such as the new Montana, the new Chevrolet tracker and the duo Onix. And now the brand is ready to launch another compact SUV from Onix, the Groove 2.0.

This new model, which is also a Chinese project like much of Chevrolet's current line in Brazil, has been very successful in China and other Latin American countries. Groove uses the same platform as the new Ônix and Onix Plus, and has many qualities, as well as some of the duo's shortcomings.

Chevrolet Groove is a compact car that is positioned below an SUV Tracker

As much as other Chevrolet models, like the Nervos and the Pulse, the Groove is a compact car that is positioned below an existing compact SUV, which in this case is the Tracker. This strategy is similar to that of the Nervos in relation to the T-Cross and the WR-V in relation to the HR-V. The Groove measures 4 meters and 22 cm long, about 10 cm less than the Tracker. It has a wheelbase of two meters and 55 cm, is 1,74 m wide, 1,61 m high and weighs up to 1218 kg. In addition, it offers a trunk with a capacity of 417 liters, which is good for its size.

Despite being smaller than the Chevrolet Tracker, the Groove manages to be prettier at the front. It has a grille with a chrome finish, a gray appliqué on the bumper and a divided optical assembly with LED lights above and the others at bumper height. On the sides, it has a floating roof, A and B columns painted in black, side trim and chrome window frames. The wheels are 16 inches and have a diamond finish. At the rear, the Groove offers an integrated spoiler, a bumper with a gray appliqué and lights with a semi-transparent look.

New Onix SUV with 1.5 naturally aspirated engine that runs only on gasoline, generating 110 horsepower

The Chevrolet Groove can come with two engine options. For the access versions, a 1.5 naturally aspirated engine is used that runs only on gasoline. This set generates 110 horsepower and 15 kg of torque, and is associated with a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. The performance is ok, not impressive, but the consumption averages are good.

For the more expensive configurations, we have the well-known 1.0 3-cylinder turbo engine, the same as the Chevrolet Tracker and Onix, which runs on gasoline, but will come as a Flex in Brazil. This engine generates up to 115 horsepower and 16 kg of torque, and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. In this case, performance is very good and consumption averages continue to be excellent.

Groove has onboard Wi-Fi and complete multimedia with screen, rear camera, integrated GPS and wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Just like the exterior, the Chevrolet Groove also stands out inside. The style is beautiful and modern, and the finish is basically the same as that of Chevrolets available in Brazil, with lots of hard plastics. The internal space comfortably accommodates 4 adults and a child. In terms of equipment, the Groove is very complete, with electrically folding mirrors, face key, multifunctional steering wheel, monochrome on-board computer, three fast charging USB sockets, single-zone digital air conditioning and a generous panoramic sunroof. The multimedia is complete, with a screen, reversing camera, integrated GPS and wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Furthermore, the Groove has Wi-Fi on board, as in practically all Chevrolets that come with MyLink.

Groove's security follows the same line as its platform cousins ​​sold in Brazil, such as Onix and Tracker, which are also safe vehicles

In terms of safety, the Chevrolet Groove follows the same line as its platform cousins ​​sold in Brazil, such as the Onix and Tracker, which are also safe vehicles. It has good results in Global NCAP crash tests for both adults and children. Safety features include traction and stability controls, four airbags, disc brakes with ABS on four wheels, head restraints and three-point belts for all occupants, isofix and blind spot alert. However, Groove does not have more sophisticated safety features, such as collision warning with autonomous emergency braking and adaptive autopilot, which are already present in entry-level versions of its competitors, such as the new Volkswagen Nivus.

Onix's new SUV in Brazil is the terror of Pulse, Polo and Compass: Chevrolet Groove is the cheapest SUV of all!

The new Chevrolet Groove is now available in countries close to Brazil, such as Argentina, Mexico and Peru, and even in Chile. In Brazil, the Groove should have prices between R$110 and R$130, aiming directly at the Fiat Pulse, which starts at R$100.990 in the entry-level version and can reach R$131.990 in the top-of-the-line version. Comparatively, the Pulse is not a model in this category, but rather a niche sports car that competes with the Polo GTS and features a 185 horsepower turbo engine from the Jeep Compass, costing around R$150.

With Chevrolet's success in Brazil, Groove promises to win over Brazilian consumers looking for a compact SUV!

With Chevrolet's success in Brazil, the Groove has a great chance of becoming a huge sales success. With a beautiful design, modern interior, good equipment list, engine options and competitive prices, the Groove promises to win over Brazilian consumers looking for a compact SUV. It remains to be seen how Groove will fare in the Brazilian market and whether it will be able to surpass the success of Tracker, currently the Best-selling compact SUV in the country.
