Chevrolet Tavera is still there in the MPV market but to compete against Maruti Ertiga with a less expensive multi utility vehicle, General Motors launched the Enjoy with a smaller diesel engine: a 1248 cc unit with power of 76.44 bhp and torque of 19.1 kgm.
This MPV was first unveiled in Auto Expo 2012 and has been developed by the GM-SAIC joint venture in China.
Let’s check out the features of a top end variant of this car: Enjoy 1.3 TCDi LTZ 7 seater
Along with the elementary features that embellish the monocoque body of Enjoy 1.3 TCDi LT, the LTZ variant gets superior with a set of 14 inch light weight alloy wheels. The other 3 models in the diesel league (one 8 seater and two 7 seaters) have steel wheels with full covers. Like the mid end model, this one also comes with body coloured ORVMs and door handles, leaf shaped fog lights, chrome on radiator grille and on strip over license plate.
With black and beige interiors and leatherite upholstery, this top end model has the same cabin elements as in Enjoy 1.3 TCDi LT. Air conditioner vents, door armrests, and gear knob also have wood finish. On the whole, the quality of materials used for this MPV’s interiors is not the best in class but roomy cabin and adequate leg room still make it a practical vehicle for long drives.
The array of comfort and convenience features in the mid segment variant includes elements like reverse parking sensors, buzzer optimised remote keyless entry, height adjustment for driver seat, washer/wiper/defogger for rear glass and a multipurpose 12V power outlet in the third row. There is an in built music system too. All these elements are also there in the top end segment model. But unlike the other 2 variants that have manually adjustable ORVMs, this one comes with electrically adjustable ones.
In addition to the safety features that also come with its mid segment sibling, Chevy Enjoy 1.3 TCDi has the added safety of anti lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD). Alongside this, there are airbags for driver and front passenger.
Enjoy 1.3 TCDi LTZ 7 seater is priced at Rs 8.15 lakhs (ex showroom Delhi price) and is a well loaded version of this MPV if you prefer a host of features in your vehicle.
