It can cross the speed barrier of 100 Kmph in close to 11.9 seconds from a standstill.

It has the displacement capacity of 1248cc and is based on a double overhead camshaft valve configuration.

Safety & Security

Editor's Take : The safety features on the Sail are the dual airbags and the ABS. These are available only on the top of the line Sail LT.

 

The automaker has bestowed it with many safety aspects that ensures maximum protection to its passengers and vehicle as well. The front seats have three point ELR (emergency locking retractor) seat belts with pretensioners and the rear doors have child protection door locks. This vehicle has a safe cage body structure with in-built crumple zones and side impact beams in doors that result in an enhanced security for occupants inside the cabin. The high end variants are bestowed with driver and passenger airbags, which lack in other trims. The LS ABS and top end trims have an anti-lock braking system that prevents skidding of vehicle.
