As the next generation Global Compact Car platform from GM debuts over the next couple of years, one of the variants that's coming is a compact MPV. Currently, Opel has a Delta-based MPV called the Zafira which will be joined by a Chevrolet version that has now been spotted testing. The Chevy Tacuma will be built in Detroit alongside the Volt at the Hamtramck assembly plant. The Tacuma will be about the size of the Mazda 5 although judging from these photos it doesn't look this one will have sliding doors. It's not known if the Zafira will keep its sliding doors or if it will be offered as part of the Saturn lineup. The Tacuma is expected to be offered in two row, five seat configuration and as a three row, seven seater. If the Tacuma gets the same direct injected 1.4L turbo as the Cruze it should also get great fuel economy in mid-30 mpg range.
