The 2012 Chevrolet Tavera Neo 3 is the smart blend between a SUV, a MPV and a MUV.

This Chevrolet model at present is available in 21 different variants with diesel engine. The MUV is designed on the Isuzu Panther platform which was a diesel powered MPV sold in Indonesia.

The exterior looks of the car are very decent and the company has put in all efforts to make to it a eye catcher. In the front there are newly designed headlamps that catches the attention in single glance. Between the fog lamps there is a smartly designed new dual port grille is pretty eminent and has been divided into 2 by the bigger and fresh Chevrolet crest. The headlamps have been given a curvy rectangular look which makes it look more stylish. Both the front and the rear bumper have been designed with great care. The front bumper has on it the fog lamps with the chrome ring around them to facilitate the driver while driving in extreme weather conditions. The side profile of the Tavera Neo 3 is equally attractive, the dual colour graphic amalgamation with the new 15 inches of alloy wheels appear strong and enhancing the side beauty. The chrome door handles gives a sporty touch to the car. At the rear end there are striking tail lamps along with a bigger Chevrolet badge being positioned in the middle with pride above chrome strip. The rear wiper is present to make it easy for the driver during rains. The 2012 Chevrolet Tavera Neo 3 smartly measures up to 4435 mm in length and has a height and width of 1765 mm and 1680 mm respectively. The striking long 2685 mm wheelbase along with wide track results in comfort inside. A high ground clearance of 170 mm gives a high stance to this MUV.

The dual cockpit design adorned with the dashboard is accompanied with brand new instrumentation console and a fresh and smooth steering wheel. The seats provide a good comfort and fabric upholstery which makes the interior go a notch in higher values.
