Click above for gallery of the Chevy GPiX Concept

The Sao Paulo Auto Show is shaping up to be more interesting than we thought, but that's no surprise considering how important the South American market is to automakers. As such, Chevy will be revealing a new concept in Brazil called the GPiX that will reportedly inspire a new line of vehicles to replace the Corsa on sale there now. The new line will include sedan, hatchback and truck variants, as well as a small crossover not unlike the GPiX concept itself. While the rear end looks something like that of a Suzuki SX4, the front clip of the GPiX is all Chevy with the now familiar split corporate grille. We do, however, really like the vertical stack of LED lights that flank the long air intake on the lower bumper. We should have more details and high-res images of the GPiX concept after its official debut on Monday at the Sao Paulo Auto Show, so stay tuned.

      I think this is a good logical successor to the Corsa.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I, for one, actually think it looks pretty OK --- kind of like Chevy's version of a Ford Kuga, or something like that.

      Nothing really new --- but I like that speedy roof / pillar treatment! Nice "forward lunge" to the design in side view.

      Gotta be a thinly-disguised showcar version of what will likely be a four-door Opel / Vauxhall / possible Chevy.

      The design seems right out of the GM part bin. Nothing new to see here. Which if this mini-cuv came out 2 years ago would have been fine. With that said if this was on the market even here in the US at a reasonable entry cost point they'd have a winner. But alas it's not for the US Market by the time it hit the streets it would be dated.
        • 6 Years Ago
        It's only dated to us. The rest of the word is still gonna be wow'ed by the GTR when they finally get to see one.

      One could safely assume the GPix runs on Brazilian rain-forest made ethanol, former lover of the mainstream media?

      I see 5 series headlights.
      • 6 Years Ago

      I love how Autoblog files the 4th largest city in the world under "Misc. Auto Shows.".....
        • 6 Years Ago
        the organization really isn't about the size of the city, it is about the size/relevance of the auto show itself. therefore, this is a misc. auto show

      i can count at least 10 brand name with this design of headlights.
        • 6 Years Ago
        tiguan, mainly, since small crossovers seem most relevant.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Well at least the rest of the thing is not as similar to the tiguan as the Captiva is to the touareg
      • 6 Years Ago
      not bad looking, although do we really need another CUV? Besides the obvious differences with the headlights and grill, it has the overall stance and proportions of the Ford Kuga: http://www.autoblog.com/2007/11/23/meet-the-production-ford-kuga/

        Well, it's for the south american market. A bit of offroad ability is certainly quite useful there.
      • 6 Years Ago

      • 6 Years Ago
