Pros : Space, Style, Ride comfort

Cons : Slightly lesser initial pickup

Look and Style: I recently purchased Sail LT ABS version, Sandrift Grey colour. Looks macho and gives a pucca sedan look from outside. When you get into the cabin, its really spacious and can easily fit in 3 adults at rear seat. When compared to other entry level sedans in market, Sail looks very stylish and attractive.Recent updates to the exterior makes the car look a premium one eg;Blacked out B pillar, Chrome finished fog lamps, and Chrome line on boot lid.

Comfort: I recently had a drive from Bangalore to Mysore during which I did not become tired or felt uneasy even for a minute. Its a pleasure driving this car. Engine is so smooth and you wont hear any grunt or noise while driving. My parents at rear seat said that they had plenty of leg and shoulder room and they did not get travel fatigue. Even you have little space below the rear seat to hold kit bags. Steering was very responsive inside the city as well as on highway. Bucket type seats provide great stance for passengers and liked it much. Adjustable head rests at front row is a plus. The oddly placed power window switches turned as a convenience to me now :)

Pickup: When it comes to pickup, Sail slightly takes a backseat. But, family person like me would not mind this as it responds decently in traffic but I had to put some effort on highways to speed up the car. This is due to the overall weight of the car, as it is obviously a bigger and spacious one when compared to other tiny sedans in market. Once I rev up the car for few secs it gradually gains speed and gives nice performance. Personally, I preferred this car as i was already aware that this has slightly less pick up because cars with lesser pickup will not comsume more fuel :)

Mileage: I have not noted it down. But did full tank once and felt that it lasted long enough. Have to wait and check further.

Best Features: Looks, Space, Ride comfort, Audio, A/C, Boot space

Needs to improve: Engine performance for lovers of racy driving

Overall Experience: Very satisfied till now and feeling unique by having Sail..

    It is nearly a year that I bought this car, the 1.2 LS ABS model. It gives an extremely smooth driving experience, plus tremendous traveling comfort. A luxury sedan at this price is a dream come true for middle class consumers. I wish to thank for it is after extensive and intensive research on your site that I decided to buy this car.

    Dear Sir, I am also planning to purchase sail in this week. I am worried about the comments, I am getting different opinions from different people. Somebody says that the maintenance is very costly. Is it true? Please share your experience in the past six months. Please mail me at
