Regulars here would remember that we recently posted spy pics of a Chevrolet Enjoy test mule being tested in Pune. The Chevrolet Enjoy MPV will be produced at GM India’s Halol plant in Gujarat. And will be battle it out against the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Nissan Evalia. The Enjoy was first seen in India at the New Delhi Auto Expo last year and we were the very first to report that the car will be launched as soon as in April this year. Today we have got to know that Enjoy will be launched with a starting price of INR 7.2 lakhs (ex showroom, Mumbai).
The Enjoy has been developed by SAIC- GM’s partner in China
The Chevrolet Enjoy MPV is a genuine seven seater and will battle it out against the very popular Maruti Suzuki Ertiga when it is launched in our car market.
Helping GM India with pricing the Enjoy very competitively will be a high level of localization that GM India has managed to achieve. Powering the Chevrolet Enjoy will be the same 1.3 Liter multijet turbo diesel engine that powers the Ertiga. It may be noted that the same engine also powers the Dzire and the Sail and GM India has managed to do a good job with tuning the Multijet very well for their sedan.
Unlike the Ertiga, which also has a 1.4 litres petrol variant, the Enjoy won’t get a petrol engine. This should not really affect the sales of the upcoming MPV as the demand for petrol powered MPVs is next to non-existent in Indian car market.
