Jammu, February 8 (Scoop News) –General Motors India launched the Chevrolet Sail today. The premium sedan takes styling, comfort, performance and safety in its segment to a new level.
The Sail is built on a new global passenger car platform created especially for fast-growing emerging markets. Engineers at the GM Technical Center-India in Bangalore spent nearly two years refining the platform for India to ensure that it would meet the requirements of the local market and car buyers.
“The eagerly anticipated Sail is an important addition to GM’s sedan line-up in India. It competes in one of the largest and fastest-growing segments,” said Lowell Paddock, President and Managing Director of GM India. “The Sail embodies the bold pioneering spirit and ingenuity that have become the hallmark of Chevrolet.”
The Sail’s exterior exudes Chevrolet’s sporty styling. It has an aggressive front end based on the dynamic sculpture design philosophy along with a wide stance. Its muscular physique is enhanced by wide-angled jewel-effect tail-lamps and wrap-around headlamps.
The front view features Chevrolet’s signature design cues, including a dual-port grille adorned with a gold bowtie that gives it a bold look. “Hawk Wing” headlamps and “Shooting Star” front foglamps enhance the vehicle’s elegance.
From the side, its unique waist-line accentuates the sedan’s dynamic stance. It has a long front and short rear, with a lower stance in front that moves upward in back. Its bold contours give it a classic three-dimensional look, which sets it apart in the segment. The streamlined shape adds a vibrant styling element while reducing drag, for lower fuel consumption. Large panoramic side windows and wide-opening rear doors give it the feel of a much larger car.
The Chevrolet Sail is available in seven exterior colours: Velvet Red, Switchblade Silver, Summit White, Caviar Black, Linen Beige, Sandrift Grey and Misty Lake.
The Sail’s interior combines comfort and ergonomic convenience. Its Chevrolet Corvette-inspired dual cockpit design incorporates well-supported seats and fold-away rear arm-rests. The “Rising Sun” instrument cluster complements a luxuriously blended two-tone interior with highlights in silver and chrome.
The smart and spacious design philosophy was adopted to ensure the space of a family car, giving the sedan room for up to five people in comfort. Short front and rear overhangs along with a fuel tank situated in the middle of the car maximise interior space and provide among the best legroom in the segment.
The sedan’s high roof design offers ample headroom even for taller passengers. Smart and well-thought-out storage spaces as well as a spacious boot provide room for passengers to stow their belongings for a daily commute or weekend trip.
The Fun-Wide entertainment system has Bluetooth® functionality. It supports upto five phone pairings and music streaming.
The Sail is available with a choice of SMARTECH diesel and petrol engines that provide a combination of power, fuel efficiency and low emissions.
