Pros : comfort,mileage ,leg space this is way way ahead of any hatchback

Cons : due to indian road can imrpove ground clearance more .


Look and Style Iam in love with looks of sail uva front which looks like cruze. Comfort No other hatchback will give you this much comfort dues to plenty of leg space for backseaters too. Pickup excellent pick up  Mileage if you are driving at around 65 to 80 kms without ac or on and off ac  on highway this car give u between 22 .5 to 24 kmpl with ful time ac on give u between 19 to 20 on highway.intercity anything between 15 to 18 with ac on . Best Features tilt steering adjustible side mirrors.excellent suspension,fog lights at night .servicing till 2nd service nothing charged til now and 3800 after one year is wht iam told .maintenance  free car.   Needs to improve the window pane were cluttering intially and after a padding was placed they r now fine.idling noise should be less.   Overall Experience i had purchased this car due to good mileage ,plenty of leg room comfort and decent looks.iam very happy with the way ever 4 average people can sit and small kids til age 4 just walk around on the back wit power windows and child lock for window panes too for the back seat.iam satisfied

    I am getting 8-9 km p/litre with AC in city drive. The window control panel located in the central console is horrible. You have to carry a torch to find out the knobs. Pick up is not according to the torque shown. Ground clearance is good. Do no try to overtake in high speed as the pickup may betray you.

    Dear Utpal, I could't understand that u r getting 8-9 km p/ltr. U should drive with RPM below 2.0(2000) on each gear. as well as so many tips are there but first u try that because it is basic. As 1500 kms on road I am getting 16 kmpl without first service in petrol version. I hope after 1st service and around 5000 kms, I should get more than 17 kmpl.

    Abhishek |28 Jul,2013 09:33:36 PM

    Thanx for ur tip of less than 2000 in each gear..U said , other tips are there.Can u mention other tips also?

    kanwer |29 Jul,2013 09:04:53 PM

    dea abhishek other tips apply to all cars which r common 1.drive in 5th gear if possible in city and roughly above 45 kms to 50 kmph reading u can put the 5th gear .2 Switch off ur engine when ur standing at traffic lights if possible .3 Avoid unnecessary pressing of clutch plates 4 Always clean the air filter roughly by 1500 to 2000kms on ur own it increases the average 5 keep the air pressure in all tyres regularly at 34 in ur sail uva thats wht i check every week .6 i even put the car in neutral without offing the engine if im going down hill or in intercity i put in neutral well ahead of a roundabout or traffic lights when i knw i have slowdown and apply break so put in neutral and leave the accelrator car will reach it s spot very cooly. 7 get the diesel filled from a company owned petrol pump not a private owner having company name tag this wil give u a cleaner fuel and prolong the car engine life. hope these points help u. kanwer

    8 to 9 kmpl ru having diesel or petrol version.im having diesel LS model never fell below 15 to 16 neither intercity nor on full trip with ac on even while stopping over for cold drinks stretch was 140kms .Hilly terain of 220 kms was feeling the load uphill with ac on but guess thats normal.I feel centrl knobs did take me time to get used to now i dont have issue with that .Overtaking is smooth as long as the gear and accelaration ratio is appropriate one more thing only after 15000kms or the thrid service will the fuel ejectors be adjusted and might help you with your mileage and also the pick up.i overtook anyone i wanted touched 100 max never went beyond it yet.i feel to get the best out of your engine 80 is max one should run during initial 8000km although run in is 2000km as mentioned by company. this review is for diesel LS model

    Hi.. i m from punjab . i want to buy new sail uva .. but im cnfusd btween swift and sail... I like the facilities of SAIL . but i m a bit affraid cz this is a new car and i dont know perfomence.. will u pls guide me witch car is betr for me...

    kanwer |03 Sep,2013 02:23:29 PM

    dear diljit ,i purchased sail uva diesel LS with power windows and bluetooth and one airbag for driver in december2012 .i have now completed 7500kms including trips to amritsar and uphill to ponta sahib aswell .i tested this car in last trip pushed it to 120 kmph on way to ludhiana. i feel this car is a value for money with plenty sapce and a excellent family car with a gr8 mileage.My mileage never fell below 14.5 kmpl in citywith full ac on but without it i get 16 to 18 in city without heavy traffic .and highways i have got 22 plus average many times and even 24. for which ac was run off and on not full time working and speed was between 65 to 80kmph.Intiallly i feel 5000kms give it a proper runin dont go beyond 80kmph.There are few things you need to knw like steering wheel is soft at higher speeds plus 110 kmph speed so if u wana push car beyond this speed you need to choose a car with harder steering wheel.Th other things r minor ac switch light is not visible in daylight but ac is very effective .i love this car for two major reasons SPACE AND MILEAGE.i adore the comfort it gives.It had some issues with sail diesel which company hasnt confirmed yet so i suggest although my vehicle has had no issue and runnign smoothe even tested at high speed u should reassure with other owners and company before final decision. NO car is a match for sail sedan or uva in terms of comfort and space thats wht i feel .maintenance nothing charged from me for first 2 services after 1 yr wil get third service done and can update details abt the amount charged. I feel sail has a upper hand over swift anytime.

    kanwer |04 Sep,2013 02:59:06 PM

    dear diljit , The company is restarting the production of sail uva diesel and sedan diesel.I t has voluntarily recalled 4000 units this is the latest update .So all the glitches if any have been rectified and corrected in newer production and hence u can go ahead with sail sedan and uva september manufacturing or by next month .Rest its become a joke with swift also had glitches then swift desire ac stopped on traffic light or when car halted then ford holding record of highest number of recalls and last recall was of ecosport ,toyota too,so the list is long and i dont understand why companies cant give a thorough check out before being in a hurry to launch haha. Now its safe to buy sail uva or sedan diesel in short go test drive and see for urself both. hope this helps

    Hi, I Brought the base model of the same. this is nice and good experiance of driving, very good boot space, looking good from the front, smooth stearing, interior finishing is excellent. but i feel bad on the roof top used a very thin metel sheet feel not good. but over all very nice.

  • chris |25 Apr,2014 04:17:42 PM

    You will get on highway more than 22+ (without A/c) if you drive with A/C you will get 20. drive in engine rpm 2.1-2.2, & dont accelerate much, in city @ heavy traffic you will easily get km/lt with A/C. Sail sedan is a terrific car. super spacious & very good suspension. I recently traveled 580 km in that 350 km on highway with (A/c) & 230 Km on ooty hills without A/C i got Avg mileage of 20.3 , really happy with this car.

    Hi sir, I am thinking to buy a hatchback car for hilly roads ranging from 5 to 6 lacs price but I am confused either I have to go for Maruti Suzuki Baleno or Chevrolet Sail Hatchback. Please guide me.
