Chevrolet Sail

INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

Ed's take: Chevrolet got everything right on the inside of the Sail NB. It has space' sober styling and large boot. However' it missed it out on the quality front which could have been a tad better.

The Sail NB has been introduced after the Sail U-VA and its biggest USP is its space. The Sail NB being based on the same platform; gets the same interior space. The space in the Sail NB good is the first and the second row. The front row seats aren't very large' but the seating positioning is good enough for decent thigh support' though the side support could have been a tad better. The knee room for the rear passengers is good enough however' the headroom could be a bit tight. The features on the Sail NB are decent however' we would have been happier if the quality of the plastics was a tad better. It is more of the feel of the materials that doesn't make it look up market. The design and placement of controls has been done ergonomically' except for the centrally location of power window switches. Base: The base version of the Sail NB gets body coloured bumpers' AC' front power windows and engine immobiliser as the features on it.

LS:

LS is the next variant above the base and it comes with body coloured door handles' full wheel cover' leather wrapped steering wheel' rear power windows' central locking and driver airbag.

LS ABS:

LS ABS is the version with all the bells and whistles of LS and ABS.

LT ABS:

LT ABS is the top of the line variant available on Sail NB and it gets features like dual airbags' ABS' alloy wheels' integrated music system with Bluetooth connectivity.

 

ENGINE:
Ed's take:

Ed's take: The 1.3-litre multijet here comes out as a clear winner as it doesn't just have better power delivery' but also is more economical.

The Sail NB is available with 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre oil burner. The petrol engine produces 84bhp of power at 6000rpm and a maximum torque of 113Nm at 5000rpm' while the diesel produces 76bhp at 4000rpm and 205Nm at 1750rpm.

1.2-litre petrol:

The 1.2-litre petrol mill is the same one that also powers the Sail U-VA. This engine has low NVH levels and is highly refined. The power delivery is decent and one needs to rev this engine to extract maximum performance from it. The power produced by this engine is decent' however one does needs to downshift to make those quick overtaking moves. The engine has strong mid-range just like most of the petrol mills. This engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. As the gearknob is short' the shifts are good and the throws are short. Though the only downside is the shifts are a bit rubbery in nature.

1.3-litre diesel:

The Sail NB is powered by India's largest selling diesel engine' the 1.3-litre multijet that also powers about 10 other cars in India. We are smitten with this engine and this has low levels of NVH. The power delivery is fairly linear and the oil burner has a strong mid range. The oil burner pulls cleanly once the engine spins above 2000rpm and also there is good enough power to make those overtaking moves. This engine also power the front wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. The shifts are positive' but still are a bit notchy.

 

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Ed's take:

Ed's take: Chevrolet has done a good job on the ride and handling characteristics of the Sail NB and we are impressed with it.

The ride on the Sail NB is decent and it doesn't feel unsettled on bad roads. The suspension does a good job of absorbing the bumps and shocks from the road. The ride doesn't feel jittery even at high speeds and the comfort at the rear is better as the rear suspension has been softened for better ride.

The handling of the Sail NB is decent and the engineers have fond the perfect strike between ride and handling. The car doesn't feel nervous at high speeds and even the feedback from the steering wheel is good.

Honda Amaze

INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

Despite being a sub 4-metre, the Amaze has loads of space on the inside and a massive boot of 400 litres. Even the quality of the plastics, the fit and finish are good on the Amaze. The Amaze gets integrated music system, electrically folding mirrors, USB connectivity as standard on its range topping VX version.

Interior styling of the instrument panel will be similar to the Brio, nevertheless we expect a few more frills on the sedan.  The Amaze gets electrically adjustable mirrors, with electrical folding. The quality of materials is decent and even the fit and finish is decent. The integrated head rest is there even on the Amaze, just like the Brio hatch.

The Amaze might be a sub 4-metre sedan, but it is definitely the most spacious in its segment. Honda’s man maximum, machine minimum has made it possible to have loads of space in the front and the rear, with a massive boot of 400 litres. The wheelbase has also been extended by a good 60mm, which has amended the knee room for the second row passengers.

E: E is the base variant on the Amaze and it is available only on the manual versions. This variant gets front chrome grille, body coloured bumpers, power steering, power windows, AC, driver info display, tachometer and ABS with EBD only on the diesel model. The interiors are single tone beige fabric.

EX: The EX gets body coloured door handles and ORVMs, 1 DIN music system with speakers are the additional features. The diesel variant again gets ABS with EBD and this variant is also available only on the manual versions.

S/SAT: The S version is available for manual, while the automatic gets SAT. This variant gets keyless entry, driver seat height adjustment, power adjustable ORVMs, power socket, 2 DIN music system and chrome surrounds on air vents.

VX/VXAT: This is the top of the line version, with electrically adjustable and folding ORVMs, ABS with EBD, airbags and all the bells and whistles.

 

ENGINE:
Ed's take:

The engines and their performance are good on the Amaze, and there are no second thoughts to how good Honda engines have been. The 88bhp petrol and 98bhp diesel engines on the Amaze are powerful and one of the best in its segment, atleast on the manuscript. The acceleration produced by the Amaze is decent and it is very drivable, unlike competition.

1.2-litre petrol:  The iVTEC from Honda makes driving bliss. This is another fine example of Honda’s engine craftsmanship. This perky engine is easy to drive with a strong mid-range. The exhaust note sweetens as you rev it and the engine being eager to spin faster even when it closes to red-line. Power delivery is linear and Amaze happily touches 100km/hr. Alibi, extra efforts are needed to excel above the 100 mark. Honda petrol engines are one of the reliable motors, and this is no exception. It comes mated to a five-speed manual or automatic transmission. The golf ball gear knob is easy to grab and the shifts on the gearbox are short and seamless. The Amaze is the only sedan in this segment to have a five-speed automatic transmission— others have a four-speeder.

1.5-litre diesel: The i-DTEC engine that India gets is a 1.5-litre, which is a derivative of the 1.6-litre i-DTEC. This has been done to get the duty cut on the diesel engines. The 1.5-litre engine churns out 98bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. This is the most powerful diesel engine in this segment and we are impressed by the power it produces.  . But the power delivery is fairly linear, without any turbo lag. The low-end torque is decent and the drivability factor is also high. Even the five-speed manual transmission on the Amaze has short throws and positive shifts. Clutch pedal is light, making driving a breeze.

 

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Ed's take:

The Amaze is a bit softer than Brio for better ride but yet it is a good handler. It has been crafted for family use hence, it has better ride than the Brio.

The Amaze has a softer rear suspension, when compared to the Brio. This has been done for better ride for the rear passengers, and also for the fact that the wheelbase has been extended by 60mm. The softer rear means a more composed ride on rough roads. The ride is smooth and it doesn’t feel jittery even on rough surfaces. The handling of the Amaze is decent. It feels that the rear steps out, but it doesn’t really. The body roll is also minimal and even the tyres grip well. The chassis is well balanced as it twists well to take the load. The steering wheel is also light and easy to drive in city traffic making it stress free driving. The other advantage is that the vehicle has good visibility.
