Very few companies have been able to re-invent themselves in the Indian automobile market. But with Chevrolet Spark, Chevrolet successfully breathed fresh air, which pushed forward its operations in India with more Indian-centric models. A comfortable player in hatchback models and compact SUVs, Chevrolet launched Sail as an attempt to explore the sedan class. The expert review of the same was done by Rachit Hirani.
The review follows the picturesque locales of Mumbai where the car complements the roads. The new Sail comes in both petrol as well as diesel variants. As Rachit points out, the front view of the car is similar to Chevrolet Cruze with perfectly positioned headlamps, which blend in seamlessly with the exteriors. The rear however is reminiscent of Chevrolet Aveo, the key difference between the two being the number plate position. Though the exteriors remind of individual cars created by Chevrolet over the years, the spacious interiors are much like Chevrolet Sail U-VA. The ergonomically designed interiors with perfectly spaced seating give a pleasing appeal to the sedan. The power window controls are in the middle and most of the controls are also aligned at the middle part of the dashboard. As Rachit observes, the Bluetooth controls can be improved and the interior materials can be a tad better. The boot space is large enough to fit luggage for small vacations. The main USP of the Sail is its large legroom and smart rear seating arrangement that provides enough space for three people to sit comfortably as even the chassis is flattened at the middle section of seats.
