Chronology
Predecessor

Chevrolet Spin is a mini MPV engineered and produced by Chevrolet in Brazil by General Motors do Brasil and in Indonesia by GM Autoworld Indonesia.[1][4][5][6][7][8][9]

GM announced in 2012 that it will market the car globally in developing countries and assemble it also at the GM Bekasi (West Java) plant in Indonesia.[10][11] Production in Indonesia has started in February 2013.[9]

In Brazil, the Spin has replaced the Meriva as GM do Brasil phases out the badge engineering of Opels as Chevrolets and vice versa. While the original Meriva was developed jointly by GM do Brasil and Opel, the second generation Meriva has been developed exclusively by Opel and marketed only as Opel and Vauxhall.

The LTZ trim of the Spin offers seven seats, and can thus also replace in Brasil the Zafira, whose global successor is being split between Zafira and Orlando, both being based on the GM's global Delta II platform.
