What is the top speed of Chevrolet Sail?

Driving Sail is quite a good experience. Both in city as well as highway. The suspension quality is just good enough to negotiate normal humps. In a highway or similar road conditions,one can go upto 150kmph maximum.
Chevrolet Sail gets up to an astounding pace instantly credited the efficient 1.3L diesel and 1.2L petrol engines. Its petrol trim can touch the figure of 100kmph in mere 12.9 seconds while the top speed attained by it is 150kmph. However, its 1.3l diesel mill can reache 100kmph mark in just 11.9 seconds and its top speed will be around 150 to 155kmph from a scratch. The performance is drivable more than the outright acceleration. Its efficient diesel engine comes with fine drivability even when lugged into a higher gear.
Chevrolet Sail is available with petrol and diesel engine options, and the performance of both variants is different. Its petrol variants are equipped with 1.2 Liter, 1197cc petrol engine which delivers 82.4 bhp of maximum power, can go upto the max speed of 155 kmph, the acceleration of petrol model is also good and it can reach 100 kmph speed in just 13 seconds. Apart from this, its diesel variants deliver can run at the top speed of 150 kmph, and it can cross 100 kmph speed from standstill in 13.5 seconds.
I own the petrol model of Chevrolet Sail, and I am very happy with the performance of this car. Just put your leg over the accelerator and feel the power of this machine. Though, I don’t know the top speed of this car but I’ve driven it multiple times upto the speed of 150 kmph. The acceleration and pick up of the car is also very good and it car reach 100 kmph in just 13 – 14 seconds.
The performance of Chevrolet Sail diesel is also very good. Its pick up is great and it can cross 100 kmph speed barrier in just 13 seconds. The top speed of the car is not oly depends on the engine power and torque but also the driving conditions and driving style. Though, I have driven it above the speed of 150 kmph so many times but after 130 kmph speed you will start feeling excessive vibrations and noise.
