Chevrolet launched the all new Sail Sedan in the Indian market at a very aggressive price of Rs. 4.99 lakhs. The Sail sedan will replace the Aveo sedan and is based built on a new global passenger car platform created especially for fast-growing emerging markets. The sedan shares its under pining with the Sail U-VA hatch.
According to the company Engineers at the GM Technical Center-India in Bangalore spent nearly two years refining the platform for India to ensure that it would meet the requirements of the local market and car buyers.
The front view features Chevrolet’s signature design cues, including a dual-port grille adorned with a gold bowtie that gives it a bold look. “Hawk Wing” headlamps and “Shooting Star” front fog-lamps enhance the vehicle’s elegance.
From the side, its unique waist-line accentuates the sedan’s dynamic stance. It has a long front and short rear, with a lower stance in front that moves upward in back. Its bold contours give it a classic three-dimensional look, which sets it apart in the segment. The streamlined shape adds a vibrant styling element while reducing drag, for lower fuel consumption. Large panoramic side windows and wide-opening rear doors give it the feel of a much larger car.
