Chevrolet Enjoy MPV launching on 9 May 2013

Chevrolet's new MPV - Enjoy, first displayed at 2012 Auto Expo and thereafter spied "n" number of times of road across Delhi, NCR, Pune, Gujarat, Mumbai and Chennai is finally launching on 9 May 2013.

Enjoy MPV will sit in competition to Ertiga and will be available in both petrol and diesel variants. The diesel motor will be 1.3L SDE Smartech engine that puts out 76bhp and 19.17kgm of torque and the petrol motor will be B14D 1.4L engine that pulls out 103bhp and 13.25kgm of torque.

Enjoy is looking at targeting families wanting to have a spacious and fuel efficient MPV. Though it is expected to place Chevrolet's Enjoy above Maruti Suzuki Ertiga but if priced at par with Ertiga, and offered with 5 years warranty on engine and 3 years regular warranty on transmission and other parts, it could do wonders for GM India. The pricing should be the key for this vehicle and should be priced as per strategy what Honda had for Amaze - pricing it at par with Dzire.

The front fascia looks better than Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, with 4 chrome slats neatly housing Chevry "bowtie" and clear headlamps on two sides. The leaf shaped fog lamps on two sides of front bumper and a chrome surrounded airdam on the middle makes it look modern and out of conservative styling. The overall design when looked is still on conservative side, on lines of Sail U-VA and sedan and not as stylish as Beat.

The Enjoy features a monocoque chassis and has a rear wheel drive layout. More importantly, it offers a small 1.3L diesel engine that makes 73 BHP and 19.17 Kgm of Torque at 1,750 rpm. A 1.4 liter gasoline engine is part of the lineup as well. Ertiga too offers 1.3SDE diesel engine and .14L Gasoline engine - so technically Enjoy is at par with Ertiga.

6 spoke 14" alloy wheels come standard on the higher end variants. However, dual AC would be standard and will act as boon for middle and last row passengers. Other feature list includes Tilt steering, power windows all round, power mirrors and a height adjustable driver's seat which could form part of the equipment list. Triple cluster chrome surround Instrument cluster looks good and bright blue lights with red tint gives it nice feel, similar to that seen in Chevrolet's Cruze.

The car is expected to be priced around Rs 5.6 Lac - Rs 8.5 Lac
