Default Re: Scoop Pic! *Improved* Chevrolet Tavera spotted

Front end treatment seems to be pretty good, but the changes are very minor to be noticed by the common man. And the interiors which were looking up market when Toyota Qualis was on sale, look a it too dated right now. The 2 L, 120 BHP (Am I right?) engine borrowed from the ICML's Rhino is bound to give the Tavera the much needed boost in the engine department. Hope it gets up and running to gain some volumes before the Maruti Ertiga is out.

I spotted the so called improved Tavera couple of days back. Could not click picture as i was in the shop and the testing vehicle happened to pass fast. Good cosmetic changes have been made. This vehicle was wearing graphics on the last quarter panel, just like the Scorpio.

IMHO there is nothing much to be called a facelift. The portrayed pictures are very much similar to the current gen tavera and even an aftermarket mechanic can make orange colored blinkers and that Tahoe-ish grill.


Maybe they are targetting only Taxi segment with this facelift.

Any pictues of the interiors ? I mean have they added anything like Bluetooth controls, Factory music system, Steering mounted controls etc?

I saw this today morning on my way to work :

Unremarkable rear changes except for the Neo2 badging (assuming to be variant) and "MAX" label.

PS : No, I wasnt driving like this, between 2 lanes, I was in the middle of a lane change manoeuver.

Looks like they're aiming purely for the taxi/BPO business. The tail looks as high (if not higher?) as it used to, and will probably be as bouncy as before. Looks like an unladen load-carrier. Another lost opportunity, typical Chevy.

It was a decent seller in the cab segment till about 2-3 years back. Almost every call center cab was a Tavera. Wonder what happened for it to have completely disappeared now! Haven't seen a new one for a long time.

There were also rumors of it getting the engine from Sonalika! Anyone has any info if the deal went through? And is this coming at the expo?

Yes, the rear looked quite odd, as if the car was permanently nosediving under heavy braking. The driver was ripping it though and I soon lost him.

Today I spotted this in Hosur Road-Bangalore. This seems to be having 3 row sitting facility.
