Chevrolet Enjoy MPV spotted testing in Mumbai

Chevrolet’s upcoming Enjoy MPV was caught testing in Mumbai by CarToq Community Member Prasanna Thevar. He sent us this photo and going by what we see, we think General Motors is keen on cashing in on the festive season.

The test car suggests that Chevrolet is now almost ready to launch the Enjoy MPV in India. Externally the test car appears to be a base model because of the lack of fog lamps and being shod with standard steel wheels. Otherwise, the model looks exactly like the Enjoy showcased during the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.

The Enjoy is a 7-seater MPV, but is much more compact than the Chevrolet Tavera. The looks of the MPV are plain, neat and simple; suggesting GM just wanted to play safe with this one. The simplicity begins with the smiling chrome grille, minimalistic lines on the sides and a practical boot design with conventional tail lamps.

The Enjoy MPV will come with a 1.4-litre petrol motor that puts out 96 bhp of power and 128 Nm of torque. The Enjoy diesel will likely be powered by a 1.3-litre XSDE motor which is GM’s version of the Fiat 1.3-litre Multijet engine. The Enjoy is expected to be offered only in petrol initially though seeing the present market scenario in India, the diesel powered Enjoy may also be launched alongside it.

The Enjoy is expected to have a mileage of around 12 kmpl for the petrol variant and around 15 kmpl for the diesel variant. Official mileage figures are yet to be released. We expect the upcoming Chevrolet MPV to be priced competitively against the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga which is going to be its key rival. Expect prices for the Enjoy to start at about Rs. 6.5 lakh and go up to Rs. 9 lakh.

What do you think of this new people-mover from General Motors?
