Hot on the heels of the Trailblazer SUV, GM India announced today that it will also introduce the Chevrolet Spin MPV in 2016. The news was originally shared with GM India dealers during their annual meeting in Bangkok on February 13.
The Chevrolet Spin measures 4360 mm in length, 1735 mm in width and 1683 mm in height. Wheelbase stands at 2620 mm and it has a ground clearance of around 157 mm. The kerb weight varies from 1213 kgs – 1277 kgs depending on the variant.
Drive-train options on the Spin include:
- A 1.2-liter, inline-4 cylinder, DOHC, 16 valve, VVTi petrol engine (85 bhp @ 5,600 rpm/ 115 Nm @ 4,000 rpm)
- A 1.5-liter, inline-4 cylinder, petrol engine (107 bhp @ 6,000 rpm /142 Nm @ 3,800 rpm)
- And a 1.3L, inline-4 cylinder, common-rail direct injection, turbo-diesel engine (74 bhp @ 4,000 rpm / 190 Nm @ 1,750 rpm).
- Transmission options globally include a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic.
The Spin in India would be positioned as a more premium alternative to the Enjoy, as both will be sold alongside each other. Chevrolet also launched a crossover-styled variant called the Spin Activ, at the Sao Paulo Motor Show last year. It gets an external spare wheel, skid plates, body cladding and roof rails along with new alloy wheels.
