Spied – Chevrolet Spin Activ with crossover styling
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Will start a new breed of MPV variants.
Recently, a partly disguised fully-ready prototype of the upcoming Chevrolet Activ MPV was caught at a parking area in Sao Paulo, Brazil, confirming that its launch is getting closer.
The pictures reveal 3/4th of the MPV that exposes the front rugged bumpers, smoked headlamps, black tough body panels, and side graphics with the “Activ” name. Exclusive to the Spin Activ are 16-inch alloy rims, door mirrors finished in gloss black, and a spare tire mount on the back door.
Compared to the Spin MPV, the interior of the Activ variant remains unchanged, with notable features like dual airbags and steering-mounted audio controls.
Tha Activ will only be sold in the top-end LTZ trim, and will be powered by a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine that outputs 109 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 142 Nm of torque at 3,800 rpm. It drives the front-wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission, or a manual gearbox (unconfirmed).
The Spin Activ, without the exposed spare wheel, was recently showcased at the 2014 IIMS (Indonesian International Motor Show) where it holds a price tag of 203.2 million Indonesian rupiah (INR 10.30 lakhs).
