Chevrolet Sail hatchback was the one being showcased at the recently held Auto Expo. Also, we had earlier showcased you the spy images of the Chevrolet hatchback. But this time the spy images are not the regular hatchback, ofcourse that has been unveiled at 2012 Auto Expo. Infact a few sneaked pictures of the Chevrolet Sail sedan which despite the camouflage offers enough tidbits to catchup with the grapevine.
The Sail sedan is built on a new global small passenger car platform that GM created especially for the world’s emerging markets. The exterior and interior design exudes Chevrolet’s sports styling. The front view features Chevrolet’s signature styling cues, including a dual-port grille adorned with a gold bowtie very similar to the Sail hatchback.
Mechanically, the Chevrolet Sail sedan will most probably come with 1.4 liter S-TEC petrol engine, while the diesel engine could be a VGT version of the 1.3 liter Multijet that GM co-developed with Fiat. The diesel engine is a must requirement for the entry into the sedan segment of the Indian market, remember what happened to Honda City due to lack of the diesel engine. However, we also suggest General Motors India to get in place a Petrol-CNG version of Sail sedan too and if possible in Chevrolet Sail hatchback too.
Unlike the Chevrolet Aveo sedan, getting the Chevrolet Sail sedan price right could help the auto major garner better sales for the upcoming twins targeted to replace the Chevrolet Aveo twins. While the Sail hatchback will be launched in India during this year, but there could be no words possible on the launch of Chevrolet sail sedan version in India.
