Spy photos of Chevrolet’s new 7-seater compact MPV, Spin were clicked in Brazil. The Spin is speculated to hit the Indian market by 2014 and may take on the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.

The Chevrolet Spin MPV gets aggressive styling similar to the Beat and the Cruze. The Spin’s design takes inspiration from the Orlando MPV which the company sells in European markets.

Price

The Spin is expected to be priced at around Rs. 8 lakh. The Spin may take on the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Mahindra Xylo and the Toyota Innova. But it will be interesting to see how the Spin MPV is positioned in the Indian market given that the company already sells the Tavera MPV and has the upcoming Enjoy MPV lined up for launch. Enjoy is clearly a bigger MPV, and the Spin, from the pictures, looks like a mini-MPV similar in size to the Ertiga.

Exterior

At the front, it has Chevrolet’s family bow-tie grille, side swept headlamps with sharp curves and a clamshell bonnet with parking lights set in what looks like the bumper of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire. The side profile reveals mildly pronounced wheel arches and chunky alloy wheels. The Spin has a bland boot door but the radically designed taillamp cluster and roof rails give it a distinctive look.

Interior

The interiors of the Spin seem to be well put together with a conventionally designed central console and an upright steering wheel. Extensive use of chrome makes the cabin look premium. Expect the Spin to have adequate space for seven passengers and carry a few bags as luggage.

Engine

The Spin is expected to be powered by a 1.8-litre petrol motor that puts out 130 Bhp of power, but this engine is unlikely to make it into the India-bound model. There are speculations that Chevrolet may use the Enjoy’s 1.4-litre petrol motor and 1.3-litre diesel motor in the Spin when launched in India.

  1. if they keep on watching Ertiga and its performance then it might be late. if they really feel that the product is suitable for india launch it and enjoy the advantage of space/demand in the mkt.

  3. The design looks neat. But the only problem with GM is engine. Though they are the ones who actually developed the MultiJet engines, they dont have a strong small capacity diesel motor. Or may be they dont have a good branding for their engines. K-series, M-hawk, Dicor, Kappa, MultiJet are some famous engine brands now becoming more and more popular.

  4. So, what GM has to do is branding their engines. Beat Diesel, a sibling of MultiJet is earning goodwill in the minds of customers now. The diesel motor in Cruz is another Jem. I think GM can bring in their engine brand line “Z-spec” for the performance brands like Cruz and some different engine brand for the small cars focused on fuel economy and so…
