Chevrolet India is very close to launching the all new Chevrolet Sail UVA hatchback. The car will be officially launched on this Friday (November 2).
The new car will replace the ‘not so popular’ Aveo U-VA that has been Chevrolet’s representative in upper B segment of Indian car market since some time now.
Chevrolet India has launched a new teaser video of the upcoming car along with a pic on its website. The upcoming hatchback from Chevrolet is larger and more modern than the Aveo UVA. More importantly, the Sail UVA will offer a diesel motor option which has been absent on the outgoing car. It may be noted that Indian car market has seen a shift towards diesel powered cars and every car manufacturer is offering a diesel engine option on its small cars.
The all new Chevrolet Sail U-VA will offer the buyers an option to choose between a 1.2 litre petrol motor that will be borrowed from the Chevrolet Beat and the tried and tested 1.3 Fiat Multijet diesel engine. The car will be launched in following variants:
The all new Chevrolet Sail UVA is expected to be priced bang on in the Maruti Suzuki Swift territory and its going to be real interesting to see how well a car with understated styling manages to fare against the likes of Swift and Hyundai i20.
