Chevrolet Sail Review

Summary

Launched in 2013, the Chevrolet Sail sedan replaced the ageing Aveo in India. The saloon received positive feedback initially, but its sale started dropping due to rising competition in the segment.

With an aim to boost its sales, General Motors introduced the facelift model in 2014 with minor exterior and interior updates. However, there were no changes made to both the engines - 84.8bhp, 1.2-litre petrol and 76.9bhp, 1.3-litre diesel. The sedan is one of the most fuel efficient Chevrolet cars in India, that delivers a mileage of 18kmpl (petrol) and 22kmpl (diesel). The new model looks similar to the old one, however, there are few minor updates such as modified headlamp, new alloy wheels, chromed fog lamp, rear and boot lip with a chromed strip and revised tail lamp. The changes go more apparent when you step inside the car. The new black and beige dashboard, chrome surrounded gear knob and AC vents, 2-DIN audio system and new leather-wrapped steering with black finishing enhance its comfort-level and entire appearance. The mature and agile suspension delivers a smooth and composed ride. The city drivability is quite impressive, but highway performance could have been slightly better.

Further to this, read Chevrolet Sail Road Test details by our expert.

Exterior

With minor exterior updates, the saloon looks identical to the old model. At the front, it features modified headlamps, new alloy wheels and chromed fog lamp. While, the rear profile features rear and boot lip with a chromed strip and revised tail lamp.

Interior

The sedan received significant changes inside as well in the form of new black and beige dashboard, chrome surrounded gear knob and AC vents, 2-DIN audio system and new leather-wrapped steering with black finishing. Most Chevrolet car models are known for their interior comfort and features, and the Sail is no exception.

Engine & Transmission

The updated model continues to feature the same old engine options - a 1.2 petrol and a 1.3-litre diesel. The 1.3-litre, SMARTECH diesel engine with common rail engine churns out a maximum power of 76.9bhp at 4000rpm with a peak torque of 205Nm at 1750rpm. The 1.2-litre, SMARTECH petrol engine, on the other hand, produces a maximum power of 84.8bhp at 6000rpm, while yielding a peak torque of 113Nm at 5000rpm. Both the powertrains are coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Performance and Handling

The sedan’s diesel engine is very frugal and peppier than the petrol one. The power delivery is linear that gets strong after 2000rpm. The gear ratios are good for city driving. It’s among the most fun-to-drive Chevrolet cars in India. However, there is some body roll at corners. The petrol version is capable of achieving 0-100kmph in 12.9 seconds, while the diesel variant takes 11.9 seconds. The ride is very composed, thanks to its agile suspension with linear dampers. The handling and drivability are pretty impressive.

Braking System

The stopping capabilities of the sedan are strong. It is equipped with disc brakes on the front axle and rear drum brakes. ABS (Anti-lock braking system) with EBD (electronic brake-force distribution), available only on top-spec model, further enhance its braking capabilities. The brake pedal feedback is progressive.

Mileage

The 1248 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 20 kmpl in city and 22 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 16 kmpl on urban roads and 18 kmpl on freeways, respectively.

Safety Features

Like most Chevrolet car models, the Sail too comes loaded with plenty of safety features, thus ensuring safe drive. Features like driver and passenger airbags, ABS (Anti-lock braking system) with EBD (electronic brake-force distribution), load limiter, speed sensitive door auto lock and front seatbelts with pre tensioners are available only with the top-end model. While, the side impact front and rear door beam, rear seat child-protection door locks, centrally located high mounted stop lamp, dual horn, key In reminder, engine immobilizer and 3 Point ELR front seat belts are standard offerings.

Verdict

The Chevrolet Sail isn’t a car for enthusiasts, but it’s a complete package for buyers who want a practical and easy to drive family car.

Competition

Honda Amaze Vs Chevrolet Sail

Chevrolet’s Sail is a proper sedan with simple and neat design and a well-equipped interior. However, it isn’t comfortable and good at handling as the Honda Amaze. The Amaze is a more practical and powerful than its rival. Its drive is engaging, and the ride is relatively smoother than the Chevrolet’s saloon.

Pros

  • Simple and neat design

  • Cabin space

  • Plenty of safety features

  • Composed ride

  • Competitive pricing

Cons

  • Few ergonomics flaws

  • Stereo system available only on top-variant

The Sail sedan similar to its hatchback sibling does not look wow from any angle but then it comes across as a decent looking car. The bow tie grille dominates the front and it also gets sweep back headlamp design. The bumper looks very cheeky with subtle profile on the lower section.
