Chevrolet Sail Hatchback Engine & Transmission

With a view to serve a wide range of consumers, Chevrolet has equipped this B+ segment hatchback with diesel as well as petrol engine. Both the engines have been known to give decent performance especially its diesel mill that ensures higher fuel efficiency along with performance. The diesel versions of Sail U-VA are powered by the very same 1.3-litre Smartech diesel engine that is already collecting applauses for powering Maruti Suzuki Swift, Fiat Punto, and a few others. But with U-VA its efficiency increases due to presence of turbocharger. The 4-pot power mill carries a capacity to churn power worth 85PS against a peak torque of 205Nm. The NVH level of the engine is well tamed and you do not realize its presence till you roll down windows to hear it. The turbo lag is less because of which the car offers much low end driveability. The engine makes the car best suited for urban drives through traffic stricken roads.

Chevrolet Sail Hatchback Performance and Handling

Chevrolet Sail U-VA offers an excellent ride across all kind of roads whose main credits may be owed to its strong suspension system. Your back wouldn’t complain over longer journeys across any kind of paths as the suspension of the car well separates the roughness of road from you. The front portion of the car is handled by a McPherson strut type of suspension which is accompanies by a pair of gas filled shock absorbers. The rear axle is balanced by a twist axle and same shock absorbers that are fitted on front end. The responsive steering of the car does pretty well and feels light over all kind of roads. The car stays in line and doesn’t roll over edgy paths (e.g. mountainous paths) with a controlled body roll. The steering is pretty sensitive and may seem a bit twitchy over expressway drives.

What do we think about Chevrolet Sail Hatchback?

The Chevrolet Sail U-VA presents a unique combination of performance, comfort, and mileage that ensures a genuine value for your money. The hatchback mainly targets that buyers’ segment that need a car for regular purposes in metropolitans and 1 & 2 tier cities. The car attracts consumers who are looking for heart winning sporty looks, decent interiors, ample space, and acceptable performance and output. On external front the car wins the war and buyers’ appreciation through its flawless design and above par looks. On the interior level, the space utilization has been done intelligently that serves the cause mainly with respect to Indian middle class buyers. Chevrolet would really make pretty good out of this car if it could upgrade the car with latest features like height adjustable driver’s seat, automatic climate control, audio controls mounted over steering wheel, rear AC vents, a little thigh support in seats, and so forth.
The power section churns acceptable energy except for the petrol version that needs a little more punch in order to get in line with its supreme rivals. The diesel engine, the main seller, delivers good performance and will smoothly meet all expectations that a diesel car buyer would have from it. Both engines are refined and have low NVH properties which are again a plus point in car’s profile. The car bears an excellent suspension and braking system which is quite at par with normal European cars. Chevrolet’s after sales services aren’t that bad unless you are residing in some remote 2-tier city or 3-tier town. So, in this aspect you can rely on General Motors. The safety aspect of the car would not disappoint you the car maker has taken complete care to include latest features like ABS, dual airbags, seat belts, impact beams, and so on. The accessory package is good though if Chevrolet could look into providing a little darker shade in interiors it would be more beneficial as the beige and light color tone will tend to show dirt effect too soon. Chevrolet Sail U-VA is a complete package that proves its value through its high level performance and true VFM offerings.

Chevrolet Sail Hatchback Competitors

Chevrolet U-VA entered Indian automotive market at a time when consumers mainly showed an inclination towards diesel cars. This is one of the main reasons why Sail U-VA helped General Motors in taking a strong stand against other strong players such as Honda Brio, Toyota Etios LIva, Hyundai i20, Ford Figo, Skoda Fabia, and a few others. The car looks much more handy and traditional as compared to Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai i20. The car appeals more to young generation of India that is showing a great interest in decent performing hatchbacks these days.
