Firstly thanks to ZigWheels for the firstever spy pictures of new Aveo U-VA/ Sail hatchback on Indian soil with badges masked. Now the current Aveo U-VA has been around for quite some time and now looks outdated. Simply put, small cars equal big sales. And this small car has the potential to seriously put the wind in Chevrolet’s sales (pun intended)!
The Sail hatchback will be launched before the saloon, looks striking whichever angle you look at it. In fact, the car has already been launched in China in both hatch and sedan variants. The car has been specifically developed for emerging markets like China, India and Brazil. The design is well executed and, like the saloon which has been spied earlier in India.
Its spacious interiors will be a selling point, however fit and finish can only be spoken about once the car is out officially. It is likely to share the Beat’s 1.2-litre petrol engine and also get the 1.3-litre Fiat Multijet within a year of launch. Costs will be kept low thanks to the car sharing many components with the saloon. A sub-Rs 4 lakh base price would make it a very noticing option.
