GM India launches Chevrolet Tavera Neo – 3 BS IV with new features
Drives MUV segment to a new level
General Motors India launches the much-awaited Chevrolet Tavera Neo 3 BS IV MPV, which combines the handling and comfort of a passenger car with the performance and ruggedness of a MUV.
"GM engineers carried out an extensive upgrade of the popular Tavera based on customer feedback,” said GM India President and Managing Director Lowell Paddock. “The result is a stylish yet durable vehicle that is perfectly suited for personal & business use.”
The highest variant of the Tavera features Chevrolet’s signature twin-port grille and a bigger Chevrolet bowtie in front and at the back. Larger shimmering crystal-effect clear lens headlamps with integrated indicator lamps enhance the bold and stylish front look while increasing visibility.
The newest member of the Tavera family is also distinguished by its dual-tone body color combination. Selected exterior color finishes are combined with contrasting gold bumpers and body side graphics. Chrome garnished front grille and fog lamp housings boost the model’s premium appeal. Chevrolet’s “advancing diamond” pattern on the side graphics seamlessly blends side surfaces with bumpers for a stunning visual appeal. Designers have also added a fresh new design for the wheel covers.
The Chevrolet Tavera Neo 3 interior has a premium look, with a beige and dark grey combination. The “advancing diamond” motif continues inside on the soft-feel cashmere upholstery with specially designed inserts. Premium perforated leather upholstery is available as on the Captain Seat variants.
Dark grey elements wrap around the occupants flowing from the top of the two-tone instrument panel to the top of the door trims, providing a perfect wrap-around effect. The smart instrument cluster has Ice Blue illumination. A dead pedal enhances driver comfort.
New BS IV- Compliant Tcdi Diesel Engine
An all-new 2.0-litre Tcdi direct injection diesel BS IV emission compliant engine is available with the Tavera Neo 3. This all new power-pack is combined with an all new transmission to deliver an excellent low-end torque and launch feel. This makes it ideal for India’s stop-and-go traffic conditions. It provides seamless power delivery and sets a new bench-mark in drive quality, performance & efficiency.
The Chevrolet Tavera has proven itself over the years to be a highly reliable, comfortable and fuel-efficient vehicle.GM India’s in-house design and engineering team aimed for best-in-class passenger comfort to ensure an optimal ownership experience.
The Tavera offers low maintenance and running costs. It gives owners the convenience of long service intervals, highly durable components and a long-life maintenance-free battery. Because of its high level of local content, replacement parts are competitively priced and readily made available through GM’s nationwide distribution network.
“The new Tavera demonstrates GM India’s commitment to listening to our customers and continuously upgrading the products,” said Paddock. “As a result of the feedback we received, the Chevrolet Tavera once again raises the bar in terms of features and personal amenities for its segment. It is a testament to GM’s resolve to continuously add value and excitement to our entire Chevrolet product lineup in India,” added Paddock.
