The top end variant for Chevrolet Sail U-VA is the 1.2 LT – ABS and is priced at Rs 5.66 lakhs (ex show room price Delhi). Its 1199 cc engine delivers a power of 84.8 bhp @ 6000 rpm and torque of 113 Nm @ 5000 rpm.
This 5 seater hatch may seem low on flair at first glance but it gets thumbs up for spacious interiors and good ride quality.
And now a dekko at the features and styling elements of Sail U-VA LT ABS:
Along with all the basic features that embellish the silhouette of Sail U-VA LS (ABS), this more sophisticated model comes with a set of alloy wheels. Lighter than their steel counterparts in mid and base variants, alloy wheels allow car’s suspension to follow the terrain more closely and therefore improve road grip. The fuel efficiency is also improved with reduction in overall vehicle weight.
The cabins for Sail U-VA Petrol - LS and LS (ABS) have been done in a dual tone coffee beige colour and the same theme follows for the top end variant too. All other elements including fabric upholstery, amber hued illumination, chrome on internal door handles & on parking brake button are also akin to those in other two versions. The additional feature that lends more class to this variant is the leather over gear knob. This also offers a better grip.
Being the top end version of its league, Sail U-VA LT (ABS) should naturally have something over and above the elements offered in other models of the hatch. So General Motors has installed a wiper, washer and defogger system for the rear screen in this variant. You can clean that boot glass for a clearer view of the vehicles behind your car. Along with this, there is also a remote keyless entry facility with U-VA LT (ABS). All other features for comfort and convenience are same as with the LS option.
There is a price difference of about Rs 67,600 between ABS optimised Sail U-VA LS and LT. So there should be something extra offered in this category too. You get this in form of three additional features: there is an extra air bag for the passenger (as against only one air bag for the driver in LS -ABS). Secondly, the car has a factory installed security alarm system. A speed sensitive door auto lock is another exclusive safety feature fitted in the top end version of Sail U-VA.
If you have made up your mind to purchase this 5 seater petrol hatch and are looking for a fully loaded vehicle with ABS, Sail U-VA LT (ABS) is the one. It may not be a car with very pleasing appearance but is adequately practical for both city and highway.
