1. Chevrolet Spin 2018 Philippines Review: Introduction
Debuted for the first time in 2012, the Chevrolet Spin is a noted crossover by the Chevy under General Motors. In fact, it’s much-publicized by the name “Shanghai GM Chevrolet Spin.” You may get surprised to know that it is assembled in our neighboring country – Indonesia. While its exterior is designed by Matt Noone, the inside is outlined by Dagaberto Tribia. Standing on GM Gamma II Platform, it has something in common with the siblings Agile, Onix, and Montana (which may sound strange to Pinoy motorists). In our shores, the Spin is offered in two engine variants: a 1.5L gas engine and a 1.3L diesel unit.
