Another show car which would make it to the Indian market is the Sail hatchback. Developed with SAIC, the Sail will be powered by a 1.2 liter petrol and a 1.3 liter Multijet engine. The car will replace the aging Aveo U-VA in the Indian market and will later sprout a boot as well to be sold as a sedan. Expect the car to be launched in a couple of months’ time and compete with the Swift, i20 and the Figo.
