Another variant of the Chevrolet Sail U-VA Petrol type is the LS which is the mid segment model. Like all other models, this one too has the 4 cylinder, 1199 cc engine with a 5 speed manual transmission. The gadgetry on this one is a little bit more detailed both on the outside and the inside.
The front of the car is adorned with the dual port chrome radiator grille with the Chevrolet bowtie proudly sitting on top of it. This variant does not come with alloy wheels but has full wheel covers. It also comes equipped with a roof antenna and body coloured bumpers, body coloured ORVMs (outside rear view mirrors) as well as body coloured outside door handles. A distinctly styled (shooting star style) set of fog lamps improve the visibility quotient of this car as they come paired with ‘hawk wing’ head lamps.
The cabin of the Sail U-VA is lit up in an amber coloured light which is both soothing and warm. To go with this illumination, there are coffee beige interiors and a fabric upholstery stretches over the seating of this vehicle. There is a leather wrapped sporty looking steering wheel. A high volume glove box offers a lot of space for storage of necessary documents. So do the map pockets in the front doors. Chrome has been added in the cabin of this car on the parking brake button and inside door handles.
In addition to the standard features which are seen all the U-VA variants (such as an air conditioner, tilt steering, front height adjustable headrests, and interior lamps among others), this one has a few more.
The variant comes equipped with its own ash tray, cigar lighter, rear parcel shelf and a vanity mirror on the co-driver’s sunvisor. Another good thing about this variant is that it has a central door locking system and the rear windows are also powered.
The down point of this variant is that it does not come with an ABS (Anti Lock Brake System) which could have transformed it into a much better vehicle safety wise. The good point is that it comes equipped with an air bag for the driver’s side and a key in reminder. Some other basic traits include an engine immobilizer, driver seat belt reminder, protection beams to control side impacts and rear seat child protection door lock.
Priced at Rs 4.76 lakhs (Ex showroom price- Delhi), it is an easy and practical vehicle overall!
