TTAC Photochop: New Chevrolet MPV
It seems GM has a new seven-seater van under development, based on the global Delta platform. It'll have to be pretty generic to meet the expectations of the global market while representing the values and design philosophy of at least three different brands. Expect the new car to be badged a Chevrolet, Opel/Vauxhall and Euro-Chevy (GM-Daewoo) but don't expect to see it in the U.S. This "born to be badge engineered" design doesn't leave that much room for a seductive personality or a strong character. But as long as humans are still organized in families and have pets and stuff to carry around, there's still a significant market for the MPVs (i.e. minivans). My rendering represents the Chevrolet version, tailored after carparazzi photographs taken so far. Sliding doors in the rear and a classic monospace body are no surprises. I wish I could render a gorgeous car, but we are seeking the truth here and this time it ain't that pretty at all.
