Pros : Silent Engine, AC and good suspension.millage

Cons : Lack Throttle response-on intial stage. responsive on high gears

My cousine recetly brought this car and after I drove this car , I like this car specs and performance. real value for money. Look and Style: Front grill and look -awsome. Back side-lacks little bit finish but, additional spoilors and chrome grill are fixed the bad look. Comfort: Very Nice. Absorbs most of the poth holes and gives a nice riding comfort. Steering is light and steering feed backs are accurate. you can drive this car using one hand. large seats and lots of back room space. Pickup: You feel some lack of power intially .But once engine aquire 1500 RPM. The lag will be move of and you will get very nice performance on 3rd ,4th and 5th Gear and you can easily raide on high speeds . even it quite stable on above 140 Kmp.only the cons--You will not get an expected throttle response at starting , but it will make over in high RPMs.But my opel CORSA is perform very much better than this! Mileage: First i feel the milage was very poor. it gives near 10KM/L .But after the first service the milage is increased and i astonished. I am getting nearly 20KM/L !!!!!!!!. I dont know what is  the magic behind that ,even comapny is saying 18 KM/L. Best Features: AC power, silent engine , high stability on speed. Suspension. Needs to improve: Initial pickup, Cheverleot symbol on steering. Overall Experience- Very good.

    Excellent review Sanjay. You echoed most of my words. You my find that i have reviewed also the same car in Cardekho. You did not mention one thing if you are driving the Petrol one or the Diesel? I guess it is the Petrol one as you said Official mileage declared 18KMPL. I am really surprised to see you are getting 20KMPL!! Tell me one thing, by saying first service means you are talking about 1 months service (Chevy called it Re-assurance service) or the 6th months Service. 20KMPL - my god!! you are getting amazing!! is it in City or highway!! SAIL UVA is one of the most capable and competitive car and i vouch for it. The more the engine is running more it is getting free day after day. Now after driving 2500KM this car, my Petrol engine just roars after 1800 RMP. The sweet growl it makes is just excellent. Yesterday i pulled my car in 2nd gear upto 4200RPM - it was simple amazing!! The sheer acceleration made my wife astonished. She said I am feeling like i am in roller coaster and the ride is going down pushed her back into the seat. Except the Horn button placement i dont have any other complains as such. And yes, if the AC is on and 5 adults are on board i also feel sluggish when the engine is below 1500-1600 rpm. Please share more of your experiences.

    Recently I have bought a Sail UVA Diesel car. I have earlier purchased 3 other brands diesel car including Tata and Maruti Suzuki. Sail UVA is my fourth Diesel Car. I got impressed by its look. It has very nice executive look. It is almost touching 4000 mm length and very spacious having CRDi ingine. Having very good features even in base model. Driving is pleasure in Sail UVA. I feel very comfortable while driving. In bumper to bumper driving (during office peak hours) also it is good. This BTB driving comfort I did not find in my earlier car. It feel like driving automatic gear car. On highway also it is very stable and smooth. AC cooling is very good. This is really a value for money car. If anybody is buying for keeping it more than 5 years or 100000 KM then its is good buy because I am not sure about its re-sale value, but if someone use it for 5 years or more or more than 100000 lakh kilometer then I think its value is realised and resale value does not matter much. This is a very good car giving feel and look of compact SUV.

    I feel you both are chevrolet employees as chevrolet is a big failure in india and had hti sproduct been so good the sales figures should have been the present figures

    I have been using sail-UVA diesel for last few months , have driven 3000 Km and have never got the desired mileage , 10 Km in city . The service station denied to admit the issue with the car or fix anything . it almost seems that its an another failure of GM . My strong advise , dont invest money in something that has not been able to prove it self and just go with something which more reliable .

    See the maximum torque available for latest diesel cars Chevrolet Diesel Having a max Torque 205 Nm @ 1750 RPM. So Tell me in this price range where will you get a diesel engine like this.So in this Price Tag (5 .50 Lakhs ) You can compete with Swift , City ,Linea, Punto . and even I20. Polo GT TDI is very good its having a very good Toque 250 Nm. But it is too costly. So dont compare this Gem (Engine) with other Crap diesel engines like nissan micra , i10 CRDI , Tata indica. In this cars base model itself you will get more features than top end of wagon R , Micra, such cars. So think practically. Punto 197 Nm @ 1750 RPM New lina 209 Nm @ 2000 RPM Swift 190 Nm @ 2000 RPM i20 Max 219.744 Nm @ 1500 RPM amaze 200 Nm @ 1750 RPM Honda City 200 Nm @ 1750 RPM Polo GT TDI 250 Nm @ 1500 RPM
