In addition, the model comes standard with a PM 2.5 air purification system that creates a green and healthy interior environment with up to 99% filtration capacity.

It delivers maximum power of 92 kW and maximum torque of 180 Nm. Fuel consumption is as low as 4.9 liters per 100 km, enabling the Onix Redline to meet the China 6 emission standard.

The engine follows GM’s strict global intelligent manufacturing process. It has been put through 3.8 million kilometers of testing to ensure it is a leader in reliability and durability.

The Onix Redline structure has liberally applied high-strength steel to balance comfort and safety. A range of advanced safety technologies come standard as well, such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which includes the antilock brake system (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), Traction Control System (TCS) and Hill Start Assist (HSA).
