Chevrolet Sail offers 248-litres of boot space. Overall Drivespark feels the rear design is ordinary and nothing to go ga ga about. Do you think the Chevy Sail stands a chance against the likes of Hyundai i20and Toyota Etios Liva?

  

General Motors will be hoping the Chevrolet Sail UVA will be received well by Indian customers. The Sail will be offered in petrol and diesel variants. The petrol variant will be powered by 1.2 liter all aluminium engine. The diesel on the other hand, will be a 1.3 liter MJD engine.

What are your initial thoughts? Would the upcoming Chevrolet Sail UVA be able to fight-off the stiff competition from the major players?

Drivespark Thinks: The Sail UVA will go about its business. However major competitors have nothing much to worry about. The design for sure does not have that oomph factor, its just pleasant.

Expected Price Range:

INR 4 to 6 lakhs

Main Competitors:

  • Maruti Suzuki Swift
  • Skoda Rapid
  • Hyundai i20
