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.

At 4,360 mm in length, the Spin's dimensions are in the whereabouts of the Mobilio.

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.

In the Indonesian market, the Spin is available with the 1.3-liter Multijet diesel engine in addition to two petrol engines.

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.

With already available MPVs Enjoy and Tavera, one wonders where the Spin will fit in.

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.
