Chevrolet has begun promoting its upcoming Sail saloon on its website. Just like its hatchback sibling, the Sail's styling, both inside and out, is on the conservative side. However, its spacious cabin will give it an edge over the Maruti Swift Dzire, which will be its chief rival.
Like the U-VA, the Sail will be powered by a 1.3-litre diesel engine and a 1.2-litre petrol engine. Interestingly, Chevrolet will not offer a 1.4-litre petrol on the Sail as earlier believed.
The Sail will also be equipped with safety features such as speed-sensitive automatic door locks, ABS, EBD, airbags, a collapsible steering system and side impact beams. The saloon will also be offered with a 5 year/1,50,000km engine and transmission warranty and a 3 year/1,00,000km vehicle warranty.
With the promise of excellent ride quality, decent comfort and prices ranging from an estimated Rs 6-7.5 lakh, the Sail could just ruffle the established order in the lower end of the mid-size saloon segment.
