Likely to be offered with the 1.3L diesel engine.

The Chevrolet Spin MPV was snapped on test by Motoroids reader, Mr. Adarsh recently. The Spin is announced to launch in India in 2016, and was fast-tracked as the MPV's dyes and tools are being relocated from the Indonesian plant which will shut down by end of June.

GM India is hoping for better plant capacity utilization with the arrival of the Spin.

The closure of the plant is part of GM's global restructuring program, aimed at cutting expenses.

Coming to the Spin, sources tell Indian Autos Blog that the people-mover will be positioned and priced as a premium alternative to the Enjoy. Like the Enjoy, the Spin in India is expected to make use of the 1.3-liter four-cylinder diesel engine (Fiat MultiJet unit) that is manufactured by GM at the flexible engine plant in Talegoan, Maharashtra, with a higher state of output. Other engine options available on the Spin include 1.2- and 1.5-liter petrol units in the overseas market.

GM also offers a crossover-styled Spin Activ in Brazil which gets additions such as an external spare wheel, roof rails, body cladding and skid guards - design elements which are finding traction among Indian buyers on compact vehicles. Offering the Spin Activ as a premium variant in the Indian market wouldn't be a surprising move as a result.

Competitors: Honda Mobilio, Maruti Ertiga, Renault Lodgy
Expected launch: 2016
