Our friends at Oncars.in report that, according their sources close to GM India, the Enjoy will be launched on May 9th. The MPV will start a battle against well established rivals like the Maruti Ertiga, Toyota Innova and the Mahindra Xylo.
The Enjoy will offer a petrol and a diesel engine to choose from. The 1.4 litre petrol motor develops 103 bhp. The 1.3 diesel engine is nothing but the ubiquitous Fiat MultiJet motor which also powers the Maruti Ertiga. However the Enjoy makes do without the VGT, resulting in a modest power output of 76 bhp. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Though the Enjoy shares its engine with the Ertiga, it adopts a longitudinal configuration and the power is sent to the rear wheels. The Enjoy is expected to offer more legroom to the third row occupants than any of its rivals.
GM India is expected to price the Enjoy to take on the Ertiga directly. The three year Chevrolet Promise free maintenance plan will be one of the strong selling points.
Will the Chevrolet Enjoy manage to get the Ertiga worried or will it go the Nissan Evalia way? We will have to wait and see!
