Chevrolet Trans Sport
The Chevrolet Trans Sport minivan offers ample interior space, luxurious features, and superior ride comfort. With an overall length of 5113 mm and a wheelbase of 3048 mm, Trans Sport fits up to seven people comfortably, yet still has 685 liters cargo volume remaining behind the third row. Both the second and the third row can be split and folded down, allowing motorists to variably enlarge the storage space up to 4,413 liters.
The Chevrolet Trans Sport has all the luxury expected in a premium American car, including air conditioning with separate rear controls, cruise control, power adjustment for the driver’s seat, and power windows. The seating in the second and third rows can be moved forward and back on rails to allocate space where it is needed. Armrests, cupholders, storage spaces, luggage nets, drawers, lamps, clothes-hooks and 12-volt plugs for coolboxes or mobile phones are just a few of the many features that make the drive a relaxing one, whatever the length and purpose of the journey.
This is also an excellent long distance travel vehicle thanks to the comfortable suspension and the easy access to the Chevrolet Trans Sport rear. Wide doors slide open on either side, with a power control to open and close the door on the passenger side.
The smooth-running engine requires little maintenance (spark plug change only after 100,000 kilometers) and displays extraordinary durability and longevity. The Trans Sport V6 (3400 cc, 137 kW/186 hp) works in perfect harmony with the electronic four-speed automatic transmission and generates 275 Newtonmeters at 4000 rpm. At least 90 percent of that torque is available throughout the entire range from 1400 to 5300 rpm. Trans Sport makes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.2 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 180 km/h. It consumes an average of just 11.4 liters normal fuel per 100 kilometers, a very low value given its great carrying capacity.
Safety is paramount for the Trans Sport and its passengers. The minivan is equipped with standard side airbags for the driver and front passenger (fullsize front airbags have always been standard), pretensioners for the height-adjustable front safety belts, and ABS. Lateral struts and high-grade steel pipes are also built into the doors.
