Our good friend Rituraj Dubey, who caught the BS4 Tavera testing in Gujarat last month felt Deja vu when he spotted different mules of the new Tavera on the same expressway.
Showcased at the Auto Expo, the Tavera Neo3 is expected to launch in the next few weeks. It uses ICML's "G-One" series engine that displaces two liters and pumps out 100PS of power. GM will continue offering the existing 2.5-liter engine on the Neo3 for customers in BS3 cities.
The Neo3 is going to be sold alongside the Wuling MPV. Either in late 2012 or early 2013, a smaller Wuling MPV (dubbed HongTu) joins the lineup as the third MPV.

The Neo3 features the Chevrolet bowtie on a larger twin-port grille. Clear lens headlamps, dual-tone body color on the highest variant, gold bumpers, beige and dark grey color combination on the interiors, soft-feel cashmere upholstery, ice blue dash illumination, perforated leather upholstery and seven captain seats are available.
General Motors says the high percentage of Neo3's local content results in competitively priced spare parts.
