Expected Launch Date: MAY 2016 – DEC 2016Alert me when launched
Chevrolet Essentia PreviewChevrolet has announced its plans to roll out a new car called Chevrolet Essentia in the ongoing Auto Expo 2016. The car is expected to replace the Chevrolet Sail, which is a bit long in tooth and rivals from other companies have taken a lead and are quite successful. It is expected that Chevrolet Essentia variants when released will include both diesel and petrol trims. This car is expected to fall in the sub four meter segment and will have better features then the current
Chevrolet Sail model.The concept Chevrolet Essentia car unveiled at Auto Expo 2016 has a eye catching design with a lot of frills that makes it more trendy. This car is based on the ‘Beat’ platform and is advertised as a compact sedan in the Auto Expo 2016. Chevrolet Essentia features include a chrome meshed dual segment hexagonal engine grille and body colored bumpers that houses a big air dam. The logo of the company, which is made in golden hue, is embedded on the upper segment of the engine grille. The headlights cluster is big and powerful and is likely to house conventional halogen lamps. Looking at the side profile of the concept car of Chevrolet Essentia shown in Auto Expo, you will notice chrome colored ORVM caps and body coloured door handles along with flared fenders, which is likely to houses steel rims mounted by tubeless radial tyres in the lower trims and probably alloy wheels in the upper trims of this model. Chevrolet Essentia Color options are unknown, but we expect Chevrolet tomake this car available in the multiple car options when it is finally released in the market.Stepping into this compact sedan displayed in Auto Expo 2016, you will be surprised at the spaciousness of the vehicle. Chevrolet Essentia Interior is tastefully designed and can easily seat at least five people with adequate legroom for all the passengers. However, we must confess that adjusting three riders in the back seats makes it a bit cramped for the riders. Chevrolet
Essentia specifications include a pleasant dual tone color scheme and its well-cushioned seats are likely to be covered with good quality fabric upholstery. This car is likely to have a beautifully designed dashboard that will house an attractive instrument cluster, which will feature speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and numerous warning lights. The three-spoke steering wheel of this car is expected to be covered in premium plastic and will have the company’s logo placed in the middle. For passenger comfort, it is likely to possess among other things a powerful manual automatic air conditioner and cup & bottle holders.
Chevrolet Essentia Expected Engine and Transmission
All Chevrolet Essentia reviews by experts state the fact that, it is likely to be made available in both diesel and petrol options. We believe that the petrol model is likely to be equipped with a 1.2-litre engine (it will help the car get tax breaks) and the diesel motor is speculated to be powered by a 1.3-litres Powertrain. The petrol engine is expected to produce a maximum power of 77bhp and the diesel motor is expected to give 55bhp of power. Both the engines will be coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox. However, auto experts predict that Chevrolet may also bring in automatic transmission in upper level trims of this model later.
Chevrolet Essentia Expected Mileage
Chevrolet Essentia mileage for the diesel variant is expected to be around 20-25kmpl and the petrol trim is expected to give an overall mileage of 18-20kmpl.
Chevrolet Essentia Expected Price
Chevrolet Essentia price in India is expected to be in the range of Rs. 5 lakhs to Rs.7 lakhs (Ex Showroom price, New Delhi).
Chevrolet Essentia Expected Launch Date
Though no official timeline has been fixed, experts believe that the company will most probably launch this car in the early quarter of 2017.
