General Motors has just announced the launch of the refreshed 2021 Chevrolet Spin in Brazil. The tenth model year for Chevrolet‘s compact MPV in its home country adds notable improvements in safety equipment and mild styling revisions to reinforce its position as the most affordable and successful seven-seater in the South American market.
As such, the 2021 Chevrolet Spin’s most important improvement is the adoption of electronic stability control and traction control as standard in all configurations. This is the first time since its introduction in 2012 that the Spin equips such safety systems, which significantly reduce the risk of losing control of the vehicle in extreme driving conditions or maneuvers.
“Electronic stability and traction control satisfy a growing demand for safety technologies without giving up its greatest virtue: plenty of interior room,” said Product Marketing Director of GM South America, Rodrigo Fioco, in an official press release. It should be noted that the Spin is sold only in certain countries across the South American continent.
Aesthetically, the refreshed Chevrolet Spin maintains the same appearance introduced in 2017 as a mid-cycle refreshed, adding only new trim elements in the range-topping Activ version that GM Brazil markets as a crossover. The 2021 Spin Activ will further differentiate itself with the adoption of the black Chevrolet Bow Tie logo, as well as a darkened finish on the grille, mirror caps and other exterior elements.
The Spin’s cabin is available in five- and seven-seat configurations. The Brazilian MPV is characterized by being very spacious and highly modular, adjusting to the needs of each trip, thanks to the sliding second row and the possibility of folding the seats when greater load capacity is required. In addition, active safety is completed by hill start assist and a speed limit controller.
The 2021 Chevrolet Spin will go on sale in the coming weeks in Brazil, with a total of four trim levels: LS, LT, Premier and Activ. They will all feature the familiar 1.8L engine with 111 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque coupled to GM’s latest six-speed automatic transmission, or a six-speed manual. The starting price of the 2021 Spin is 77,790 BRL, about $15,100 USD at the current exchange rate.
