    Default 2012 Chevrolet Spin

    Newly Launched







    This may be what Chevrolet really needed for our market, the Spin.

    Closest competitor locally to a Livina, Avanza and APV. But is a direct rival to Suzuki's Ertiga based on the stretched Swift platform.

    Less than a year after the introduction of the new Chevrolet Cobalt sedan for select markets around the globe, General Motors pulled the sheets off a new compact minivan called the Spin.
    The MPV was designed and developed by GM Brazil with the automaker stating that the car underwent tests in four continents around the world. The Spin is built at GM's factory in São Paulo, Brazil and will be sold across South America and Asia starting from July.

    The Spin shares its platform architecture including its 2,620mm (103.1-inches) long wheelbase, mechanical hardware and design language with the Cobalt.

    If you were not impressed with the Cobalt's styling, then we are going to guess that you will not warm up to the Spin either as it looks awkward, as if someone took the Cobalt and stretched its height on Photoshop…

    The interior, which can seat five or seven people, depending on the trim model, also shares many parts with the Cobalt including the partially digital instrument cluster, steering wheel and center console designs.

    Chevrolet says that with seven occupants, the Spin's load capacity is 162 liters, which can be increased to 710 liters in a five-seat configuration and 1,668 liters with the middle row seats folded down.

    There are two available models, the five-seater LT that comes equipped with standard air-conditioning, power steering, ABS, EBD, dual airbags, power windows and locks, plus height adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel.

    The LTZ adds a third row of seats, trip computer, parking sensors and steering wheel controls.

    A 1.8-liter four-cylinder Econo.Flex engine delivering 108 horsepower when running ethanol and 106 horsepower on gasoline powers both models. Transmission choices include a five speed manual gearbox and a six-speed automatic transmission.

    GM has not yet announced pricing for the Spin.

    yes this is what chevy ph needs. Kung di nila magawa tapatan ang Orlando to match with the Innova's trims and pricing. Then an Avanza competitor will do. Just price it right, baka naman umabot ng 1m ito.

    acquire nila yung Ford plant hehe

    The Spin was entirely developed in Brazil, where Diesel engines are currently outlawed into vehicles with a payload below 1000kg, unless they're 4WD or 10-seater. But the 1.7CDTi might fit into its engine bay easily, and its 110hp might be enought.

    But it lacks the Flex7 seats used in the Opel Zafira, which were less intrusive when folded, leading to a bigger cargo volume.

    I saw 3 Spins running 2 days ago. Possibly they'll also be made in China, like the new Chevrolet Cobalt which is scheduled to be made there by Shanghai-GM. The Cobalt is already fitted with the 1.4L engine, which can be also offered in the Spin altough would feel quite underpowered...
