The Aveo U-VA did decentley in the Indian market but it lacked the features and style which its successor, the Sail U-VA has in bucketloads. One of the first products to come to the Indian market after the joining of General Motors and SAIC Motor Corp. Ltd will be the Sail hatchback. This premium hatchback was showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo in New Delhi and when launched, will soon be followed by its sedan verison as well. It is also said that the Sail is the perfect replacement for the Aveo U-VA which has not been doing any good to the sales figures for the company. New and modern rivals like the Maruti Swift, Hyundai i20 and Toyota Etios Liva have taken charge of the segment completely.

in 2012 November it has been launched. 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 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..... read more

Chevrolet Sail Cabin Space

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.

What we like
Interiors are spacious and well lid out.
What we don't like
The design not as stylish as Beat and lacks quality.

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!

Exteriors Details

Front design

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.

Rear design

Twin-vertical tail lamp cluster and an almost featureless rear hatch looks different yet suits the profile of the car.

Side profile

The raised rear quarter of the car along with an aerodynamic profile looks decently proportioned. The car has clean lines along its sides

Ground Clearance

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.

The ride of the Sail U-VA is comfortable and it is sure-footed. There is less of the firmness and it is much more comfortable and better equipped to tackle potholes. The refinement though especially from the petrol was average and it sounds a bit thrashy.

Lacks refinement.

Pros A BEST CAR WITH MORE BOOTSPACE

Cons IT IS MORE COMFORTABLE

THE SAIL UVA IS A COMFORTABLE CAR FOR A FAMILY AND IS USEFUL FOR CITY AND LONG JOURNEY. WE FEEL SAFE AND THERE IS NO JERKING DURING THE TRAVALING TIME. IT IS THE BEST CAR FOR INDIAN ROADS AND I FEEL PROUD FOR BECOMING AN OWNER.

Poor Performance and factory defect CAR.
Posted on 25 Sep 13 at 10:18 am

Pros Great Looks,Great Look, thats it...Great Brand- Not meant to indian condition, worst after sales support,

Cons Average Interiors,Poor Performance, Worst fuel efficiency, back aches on long drive, poor build quality, water seepage

Chevrolet Sail U-VA, LS-ABS, the worst car i have ever drived, Apart from look and space, its a waste of money. After sales support is just a nightmare, Problem handling from dealer as well as the company is a big question on capability and skill. The day 1 problem, since 9 month nor the dealer nor the company support function resolve. i was told,this what happens in chevrolet. chevrolet is no match for Maruti, or Hyundai. I regret buying this car, worst part is cancelled Swift dzire and went with chevrolet. My honest urge for any one looking to buy car, do not get carried away with the brand, go for any brand apart from Chevrolet. Since have so many interaction with the service center guys, came across lot of chevy owner, and believe me non had a better experience. take it Cruze, sail, or any other car..its a waste of money and health..
