Tired of looking at the dreary old Sail sedan and hatchback from GM? Not that there are too many on the roads these days, but now Shanghai-GM have made a antidote. This is the new Chevrolet Sail 3, which made its debut at the ongoing Guangzhou Auto Show, and it looks much better now.

The Chevrolet Sail 3 entry-level family car is built on Shanghai GM’s new-generation small car architecture, and goes on sale in China by the end of this year. The third-generation Sail features a completely redesigned exterior featuring a bigger dual-port grille, new bumper-work, eagle eye-shaped headlights, curvier body-work and new taillights. Inside, the Sail 3 features a dual-cockpit design.

The new model is also 51mm (2in) longer and 45mm (1.7in) wider than its predecessor, with a 35mm (1.3in) longer wheelbase. The sedan offers 366 liters (12.9 cu-ft) of trunk space. In China, the Sail 3 is offered with 1.5-liter DVVT and 1.3-liter VVT petrol engines, paired with manual or automatic transmissions. Chevrolet says the power-trains are more fuel-efficient compared to previous models, delivering an impressive combined fuel consumption of 18.86 km/l.

We have to wait and watch if GM India acts and flies this on down to our shores anytime soon, as the Indian Sail doesn’t seem to be doing brisk business, and was already subjected to a mild face-lift recently.
