The 2025 Chevrolet Spine makes its debut in Brazil with extensive visual and technical upgrades
The Cobalt-based minivan adopts a crossover stance and a tech-laden interior for its second straight facelift
Chevrolet has announced the debut of a new model in Brazil, which looks more like a facelift than a new generation. We’re talking about the 2025 Chevrolet Spin, which benefits from a redesigned face, a beefed-up crossover stance, modern technology, and a new body setup, set to keep it relevant in the three-row minivan segment.
The Chevrolet Spin — the Brazilian-developed minivan version of the now-discontinued Cobalt — has been around since 2012 with a facelift in 2018. The 2025 model is said to represent the “biggest evolutionary leap” yet, though judging by the side profile Almost identical to the greenhouse, it wouldn’t be a clean design.
The company posted two images of the Spin, focusing on the redesigned front end and revamped interior. Starting with the exterior, the front bumper is covered in complex – mostly decorative – inserts, while new full LED headlights are visually connected to the upper part of the grille. Finally, a longer hood accentuates the crossover look while adding plastic cladding throughout the bodywork and increasing ground clearance slightly.

The interior has been injected with modern technology, including a digital instrument cluster that is visually connected to a new top-mounted 11-inch touchscreen. The latter will integrate Chevrolet’s MyLink multimedia system, offer OnStar, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and is compatible with over-the-air updates. Spin will offer “the most comprehensive range of safety equipment” in the sector, the company said, without elaborating. As with its predecessor, the new Spin will be available in five- and seven-seat configurations.
The improvements are more than just the exterior, as Chevrolet engineers have tweaked the suspension, giving it a slight lift. They also changed the powertrain and steering calibration, seeking to improve refinement and efficiency. Specifications will be announced at a later date, but local media suggest the current 1.8-litre four-cylinder flexible fuel engine will likely be carried over.
The 2025 Chevrolet Spin will make its official debut on Big Brother by the end of March. The updated crossover minivan will be one of the “six major launches” planned by Chevrolet Brazil for 2024. Besides the Brazilian market, the Spin is also available in Argentina, the Philippines and Thailand.
