The Chevrolet Agile is a subcompact car that was developed by Chevrolet in Brazil and built in Argentina. The vehicle was powered by a Family 1 engine 1.4 L flex-fuel engine.

Based on the "GPiX Concept" which was introduced at the 2008 São Paulo Auto Show,[1][2] the Agile went on sale in 2009[3] and competes with the Volkswagen Fox and similar models. The second generation Chevrolet Montana coupé utility shares the same platform with Agile, as well as the 1.4 L engine.

The Agile was available in two trim levels; LT and LTZ, with a base LS in some markets. Anti-lock braking systems are available on the LTZ model.


In most South American markets, the 1389cc engine produces 92 PS (68 kW; 91 bhp) and 120 N⋅m (89 lb⋅ft).[4] The Brazilian Agile Flexfuel 1.4L 8-valve engine produces 97 PS (71 kW; 96 bhp) and 129 N⋅m (95 lb⋅ft) torque with petrol, 102 PS (75 kW; 101 bhp) and 132 N⋅m (97 lb⋅ft)with ethanol.[5]


The Chevrolet Agile has been rated as totally unsafe by Latin NCAP, scoring zero stars for adult occupants and two stars for children.[6][7]


General Motors launched the Chevrolet Onix in 2012 to replace Chevrolet Celta. However the close size to Agile has made its future uncertain.
