Chevrolet Sail Base (P) Features & Specifications, ARAI Mileage and Price

To maintain a presence in all segments of the market, General Motors not only launches each of its Chevrolet cars in different variants but also for different broad categories of vehicles. So after Sail U-VA (hatch), a mid size saloon followed – simply the Chevrolet Sail.

This competes with likes of Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire and now the Honda Amaze. Although it runs on the same 1194 cc petrol engine as the Sail U-VA petrol, it has been given the form of a sedan to pull an additional class of buyers.

Let us look at the features of base variant for Sail 1.2:

Exteriors

Styling of Sail 1.2 sedan is somewhat conservative quite like its hatchback cousin. The front end however does look nice with upswept headlights and a well sculpted bumper in body colour. The two port front grille carries the golden Chevrolet bowtie. Radiator grille gets a chrome treatment even in this base variant. The arced roof flows smoothly into the well integrated trunk. This car is a genuine saloon and does not have the truncated look of sub-4 metre cars. The 14x5.5 J wheels look rather small for Sail 1.2 especially at the rear because of the prominent overhang. However on the whole, this sedan looks better than the Sail hatchback (U-VA) from rear.

Interiors

The cabin for Sail sedan also resembles U-VA’s interiors. Quality of plastics is not quite good and the coffee beige may seem a little dull to some.  The dashboard is also pretty ordinary although the protruding centre console is smart in its own way. Chevrolet has softened the seat back cushions and this makes the seats more comfortable. The rear is adequately spacious for 3 adult passengers. Amber coloured illumination for instrument panel looks elegant with the dual tone interiors. There is a cup holder on front console and also map pockets on front doors. Since this is the base variant it lacks chrome treatment on points like inside door handles and hand-brake button.  

Comfort Features

Chevrolet’s entry level saloon is equipped only with basic comfort features integral to a sporty sedan. It comes with a power steering that can be adjusted for tilt, a manual air conditioner & heater and electronically adjustable outside rear view mirrors. Front seats have height adjustable headrests and rear seats also have integrated headrests for passengers sitting on the sides. Only front windows are powered. There is a digital tachometer though it may seem a little small on the instrument panel.

The rear seat foldable armrest has cup-holders. Other elements for comfort and convenience subsume day/night rear view mirror, co passenger side sunvisor with vanity mirror, an interior courtesy lamp and a lamp for the luggage compartment. Further, the fuel lid and boot door can be opened with press of buttons in the cabin. An ashtray has also been provided in 1.2 PS (Base variant)’s cabin. There is no music system in this one.

Safety Features 

These are quite similar to the safety attributes in base variant of Sail U-VA. So inside what Chevrolet claims to be a ‘safe cage body structure’, you get 3 point ELR for front seat belts and engine immobilizer for further security. Child protection door locks are also there for the rear seats.

Along with this, there are reminders for driver seat belt, key-in and an open or in appropriately closed door. There are two horns on the steering wheel. 

Chevrolet Sail 1.2 base variant in petrol category is priced at Rs 5.11 lakhs (ex showroom price Delhi.) Standing against some more popular sedans like Amaze and Swift Dzire, it may not be the best in its class but roomy interiors and decent ride quality make it a fine saloon.
