General Motors just launched the updated 2023 Chevy Spin lineup in Brazil, the country of origin and sole manufacturing location of Chevrolet‘s small South America-focused MPV. The automaker is ushering in the Spin’s new model year with some configuration and equipment updates, reinforcing its position as the best-selling and most affordable seven-seat vehicle in the Brazilian market.
The updated 2023 Chevy Spin represents the nameplate’s twelfth model year and arrives in Brazil with two main novelties. First, the 2023 Spin adds an even more affordable seven-seat configuration with the LT trim level, in addition to reintroducing the familiar LTZ trim, although in mid-range five-seat configuration with one of the largest cargo areas in the industry.
“There is no other model with the versatility and cost-effectiveness of the Spin in its price range, so it’s a family-friendly car,” said Product Marketing Director at GM South America, Rodrigo Fioco, in an official press release. “The robust powertrain and ample space also captivate those who need a rational vehicle for work,” he added.
In total, the 2023 Chevy Spin now features five distinctive trim levels to address the needs of families and fleet customers, including LS, LT, LTZ, Premier and Activ. These include two five-seat versions (LS and LTZ) and two seven-seat versions (LT and Premier), while the range-topping Activ variant is available in both seating configurations.
As such, the new LT version of the 2023 Chevy Spin consolidates the model’s competitive advantage as the most affordable seven-seat vehicle in Brazil and arrives to primarily serve the needs of those who work in passenger transport. For its part, the LTZ trim is focused on those looking for a well-equipped vehicle with a spacious cargo compartment, which doubles the capabilities of crossovers of similar length.
All versions of the 2023 Chevy Spin receive a new Graphite Gray body color and retain the naturally aspirated 1.8L engine that develops 111 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque, mated exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2023 Spin continues to be manufactured at the GM São Caetano do Sul plant in Brazil, which supplies the domestic market and some selected countries in the region.
