The GPiX previews a new family of vehicles, consisting of sedanm hatchback and pick-up truck variants, while the range may also boast a small crossover vehicle similar to the design study.

These are the first leaked photos of a Chevrolet concept set to spawn a new family of products for the brand, announced at GM's 100 year centenary celebrations last month. This new family, which is particularly important to South American markets where a GPiX derivative will replace the Corsa, will consist of sedan and pick-up truck variants in addition to hatchback models, while the range may also boast a small crossover vehicle similar to the design study.

Based largely on the outgoing fourth-generation Opel Corsa, the Chevrolet Viva will measure up with similar dimensions to its European donor, with a 2.5m wheelbase and 4m length. Engines expected for South American markets include the 1.4-litre Econo.Flex and a further 1.8-litre drivetrain.

Further details and high-resolution photos are expected to emerge after the car's debut at the Sao Paulo Auto Show on Monday.
