Update – Team BHP member Mr. Maaz Vora has videotaped the Chevrolet Spin testing in India. Based on data from import/export website Zauba.com, we can report that the Spins seen here were imported from Indonesia and are powered by the 1.3-liter diesel engine (Fiat-sourced MultiJet engine).

Available internationally with petrol and diesel engines.
The Chevrolet Spin MPV was caught testing in India, along the Vadodara-Halol toll road by a Team BHP reader. As of now, GM India have not announced plans to launch the Spin in the country, as the American car maker already has the Enjoy and Tavera plying the personal and commercial MPV segments.
The Spin is available in Indonesia and Brazil, where GM recently launched a crossover-inspired variant with an external spare wheel and body cladding. The MPV measures 4,360 mm in length, 1,735 mm in width and 1,656 mm in height, putting it bang in the middle of the Mobilio’s territory.
For Indonesia, the MPV is offered with 1.2- and 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engines and a 1.3-liter MultiJet diesel engine. A more powerful 1.5-liter petrol is also available with a 6-speed automatic transmission while the rest of the engines are paired to a manual gearbox.
GM India’s next major product introduction is likely to happen sometime around 2017, which will see the company enter the compact SUV segment with a product based on the Adra concept. Until then, the company said that it would focus on sprucing/refreshing its current lineup and expanding its footprint.
