Reports suggest the new crossover will take on the Ford EcoSport, but with the Ford’s dimensions already dwelling in Trax territory, this new model is unlikely to be a direct rival.
The Adra could instead enter as a sub-light crossover - essentially a re-styled and jacked-up version of the Barina Spark city car.
Like the Trax, Barina and smaller Spark, the Adra is understood to ride on GM’s small Gamma II platform, also known as the ‘Global Small Vehicle’ architecture.
The Adra was designed together by Holden here in Australia and GM’s Indian development centre, and its eventual production debut is expected to focus on emerging markets.
"Adra adopts [the] global Chevrolet design language and offers high ground clearance, exceptional all-round visibility, high seating stance and generous interior space,” the company said today, ahead of tomorrow’s big unveiling.
