The Chevrolet Sail U-VA Petrol LS ABS differs from the other models only in terms of a few features; the most important one being the ABS (Anti Lock Brake System) which improves this variant broadly when it comes to safety parameters.
Let’s delve into few more details about these elements:
The exterior of this vehicle is simply designed with a practical hatchback design. It comes with headlamps and fog lamps that have been fancily named; former being ‘hawk wing’ styled and latter being ‘shooting star’ styled. Complete with body coloured bumpers (front and rear), ORVMs (outside rear view mirrors) and outside door handles, this variant also comes with a roof antenna and full wheel covers.
Some elegant touches have been put in the car here and there to make the car cabin more interesting. Chrome touches have been put on the parking brake button and inside door handles. The power steering wheel has also been leather wrapped. The coffee beige interiors go well with the amber illumination provided in the car. The upholstery is made out of fabric and storage compartments are ample.
The first thing that strikes one while looking inside the LS ABS cabin is that it is missing an audio system. While it is quite fulfilling in other comfort features, the addition of an audio system in this model could have been great. Some regular features that are seen across all variants of the U-VA sail are an air conditioner, powered ORVMs, digital tachometer, front height adjustable headrests, lamp for the luggage compartment and more. Apart from the above, the LS ABS also comes loaded with all round power windows, a central door locking system, cigar lighter, rear parcel shelf, digital clock and a vanity mirror on the co-driver’s sunvisor.
As the name suggests, this variant comes with an ABS (Anti Lock Brake System) with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution). There is an airbag provided on the driver’s side but the same is not seen on the passenger’s side. There are 3 point ELR seatbelts in the car for better safety of its passengers. A driver seatbelt reminder has also been installed. Dual horns, a safe cage and engine immobilizer are also there. Door beams are placed on the doors to protect the car from any side impacts and locks on the rear door ensure child safety.
The Chevrolet Sail U-VA LS ABS has the same engine as the other petrol variants, which is the 4 cylinder, 1199 cc engine with a 5 speed manual transmission. This vehicle has a seating capacity for 5 people and a cargo space of 248 litres.
Ideal and a practical car for a small family, the variant costs about Rs 4.98 lakhs (ex showroom price Delhi)
