SPE/4 engine

Like the Chevrolet Spin, the 1.8 SPE/4 four-cylinder engine is also familiar to Brazilian consumers. It does not use direct injection, a small amount of turbocharger, but it offers a simple construction associated with maintenance without headaches.

On the wheel, performance is accompanied by suggestion, and continuous response – when six-speed automatic transmission (GF6 nomenclature, also applies to Onyx/Onyx Plus, cross midnight and it is not Chevrolet Tracker 1.0 and 1.2, for example) changes briefly and makes good transitions. In fact, a series change is made by an impossible button on the side of the gear selector lever.

On the other hand, the electrically assisted steering is light when driving at low speed or in manoeuvres/beacons in the same way that the suspension still favors comfort due to soft calibration. The 16″ alloy wheels are fitted with 205/60 size tyres.

The Chevrolet Spin may be overdue for a change in the overall context, but it’s a (good) alternative for those who want more utility/indoor capability.
