The Chevrolet Spin comes in second with its 1485cc four-cylinder engine that churns out 109 PS of power @ 6000 RPM and 141 Nm of torque @ 4000 RPM. The third place is also captured by Chevrolet with its Enjoy. The Chevrolet Enjoy, from its 1399cc motor, puts out 100.2 PS of power @ 6000 RPM and 131 Nm of torque @ 4400 RPM. The Suzuki Ertiga comes in last with an power output figure of 95 PS of power @ 6000 RPM and 130Nm of torque @ 4000 RPM.

    I think Chevrolet Enjoy is quiet as impressive choice among all these MPV if cost is the main criteria. It is specious, has all desirable features….Looks are also good… Weakness: It lacks power..
