Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
Competes with the Honda Mobilio RS and the Suzuki Ertiga Sporty.
The Chevrolet Spin Activ MPV which was launched in Indonesia in April to mark the first anniversary of the nameplate was also brought to the Indonesia International Motor Show 2014 (IIMS 2014).
Based on the Spin MPV, the Activ variant has smoked headlamps, a rugged front bumper, black body paneling and reflectors on the rear bumper with ‘Activ’ embossed on it.
Interiors remain unchanged with features including a passenger airbag and steering-mounted audio controls.
The Activ is only available in the LTZ 1.5-liter AT configuration. The 1.5-liter four-cylinder inline petrol engine coaxes out 109 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 142 Nm of torque at 3,800 rpm, and is driven via a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
The front-wheel driven Spin Activ measures 4,360 mm in length, 1,735 mm in width and 1,656 mm in height without roof rails and 1,683 mm with roof rails. It gets a ground clearance of 157 mm and a wheelbase of 2,620 mm. The Chevrolet Spin Activ is priced at 203.2 million Indonesian rupiah (INR 10.30 lakhs).
PT General Motor Indonesia also had the regular Spin on view in a special cream and orange livery applied to the exterior and interior, very similar to the special edition Captiva.
