Chevrolet Sail available in 8 variants

Sail is the sedan version of Chevrolet Sail U-VA. This entry level sedan comes with both petrol and diesel engines. Sail is available in four variants each with petrol diesel engines, these are: Base, LS, LS ABS and LT ABS. Gm is expecting that Sail will help them get a foothold in entry to mid-level sedan segment in the Indian car market. This GM SAIC model is replacing the Aveo which was a product of GM-Daewoo association. In effect a Korean model is being replaced by a Chinese car. Sail will compete head-on with cars like: Maruti Dzire, Indigo from Tata Motors, Ford Fiesta Classic and Hyundai Accent, not to forget the Amaze from Honda. Sail whilst may not be able to woo Indian car buyers on features or drive experience, but will definitely hae a plus point when it comes to in-cabin space. Top-end variant of Sail offers dual Front airbags, ABS, bluetooth, top-end stereo system with USB, all doors power windows, Alloy wheels, leather wrapped tilt adjustable steering wheel and gear knob to name a few.

Chevrolet Sail is a popular sedan manufactured by General Motors since 2001 for the global market.

In India the car made its debut in February 2013.

In a market where brands like Maruti Suzuki DZire & Tata Indigo eCS are an established names, its not at all easy for the others to invade the segment. The story for Chevrolet Sail was not different either still the vehicle booked 8000 units of Sail in India within a short span of 3 months reflecting it ability and tye growing popularity. The other competitors of the vehicle include the recently launched Honda Amaze, Ford Classic and Mahindra Verito.

The Chevrolet Sail Sedan consists of a 1.2 L petrol and 1.3 L diesel engine. The 1.2 L SMARTECH petrol engine with dual overhead camshafts comes with 4 cylinders, 5 speed manual transmission and has a displacement of 1199 cc. This engine can deliver maximum power of 86 PS @6000 rpm and maximum torque of 113 NM @5000 rpm while the 1.3 L SMARTECH Turbocharged Diesel Engine comes with 4 cylinders, 5 speed manual transmission and as a displacement of 1248 cc.
