Chevrolet Enjoy launch tomorrow
It seems that the good phase of Maruti Ertiga is almost over as American car maker Chevrolet will be launching the Ertiga-rival Chevrolet Enjoy MPV tomorrow. This is the third MPV launch in India in the trio – Ertiga-Nissan Evalia and Enjoy. It is believed that following the high demand generated in the segment will be encashed by this new car. Besides this, the American car maker is all set to price it well in the segment. Availability in petrol and diesel models will be another plus for this car. However, the Enjoy may have to bear the brunt of the slackness in sales currently in the industry following which sales were down by as high as 10 percent in April.
Chevrolet is too aggressive for the past few months and it has launched some high volume cars including the Chevrolet Sail UVA and Sail sedan recently. Both these cars have done well in their respective segments and it is highly presumed that Enjoy will also get an instant appraisal once it arrives tomorrow. This car will be available in petrol and diesel engine options with the petrol model powered by 1.4 L Smartech petrol engine while the diesel will have 1.3 L Smartech turbo charged power plant under the hood. In addition to this, the car will be doing whatever it can to make it more lucrative than Ertiga or Evalia. A high mileage will be on offer.
Apart from being a seven seater car, this car will have the same level of comfort and features for the third row seating as well. Some exciting features such as power windows, tilt steering and rear wiper and turn indicators on wings will be in the offing to make it lucrative than others in the segment. The Enjoy price in India is expected to start around Rs 7 lakh.
