Expert Test Drive Review
The interiors of the Sail look well- built and it offers enough space and good storage space. Expect features like Bluetooth and USB to be offered.Moreover, it is a modern day car, engineered recently and this should reflect in the way it drives and pampers the passengers. It has ABS with EBD and airbags in the safety features department. For India as there are harsh summers, even the AC compressor has been upsized and that will be appreciated for sure. Overall the changed interior for India suits us a lot.
The Chevrolet Sail U-VA has a boot that is as large as 1134 liters.
The Sail U-VA gets a speedometer in the center of the instrument cluster with a digital readout and tachometer on either side.
The gear lever is well positioned and gets beige trim.
The Sail U-VA comes with 25 different storage spaces including cup holders.
The Sail however will change all that as it features a more modern looking design and a seems as a much better package as well. It easily overcomes the biggest shortcoming of the U-VA, ie, the looks.The Sail has a dual-port grille and looks handsome but it’s not futuristic looking, rather a safe design but something that will appeal to all. As you can see from the pictures the Indian version has a strong dose of chrome to make it more up-market and it will work as we love chrome!
The hatchback design of the Sail U-VA with a raised profile liberates enough shoulder and head room inside the car. The front end features the classic Chevrolet split grille with the bow-tie logo in the center.
Twin-vertical tail lamp cluster and an almost featureless rear hatch looks different yet suits the profile of the car.
The raised rear quarter of the car along with an aerodynamic profile looks decently proportioned. The car has clean lines along its sides
The petrol variant has a ground clearance of 174 mm unlike the diesel which sits slightly lower at 168 mm.
The Sail will be under 4 metres in length which means it will enjoy the tax benefits given out to small cars in India. On the engine front, the Sail will come with both petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engine is is a 85 bhp 1.2-litre unit. The diesel engine is the now famous Fiat sourced 1.3-litre Multi-jet unit. The diesel develops a healthy 77 bhp at 4000rpm, it’s smooth and has good low-end grunt. The model has been tuned and changed to suit the Indian market which will definitely appeal to the customers.
