Karthik H, A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.
The Chevrolet Spin MPV, which is the international counterpart to the Chevrolet Enjoy in a few emerging markets, is getting a soft-road version in Brazil.
A report on Noticias Automotivas says that the soft-road Spin will be based on the top-end LTZ variant and be priced slightly above it. The LTZ retails for R$ 58,990 (Rs 15.84 lakh) for the manual transmission and R$ 62,790 (Rs 16.87 lakh) for the automatic transmission trim.
The rendering on the report shows that the Spin gets a rear-mounted spare wheel, smoked headlamps, black front and rear bumpers along with black wheel arches.
In Brazil, the Spin MPV is powered by a 1.8-litre Econoflex engine producing 108 hp mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic gearbox. The LTZ trim by itself gets two packages, the standard R9P equips the MPV with dual front airbags, EBD and ABS, along with 7-inch LCD touchscreen infotainment system, steering-mounted controls and a five-speed manual gearbox amongst other regular features.
The optional R9Q package for R$ 3,800 (Rs 1.02 lakh) adds a 6-speed automatic gearbox and cruise control.
If put into production, the Chevrolet Spin soft-road will try competing in Brazil against SUVs like the Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport which have limitations in seating capacity for the customer from an extended family.
