2012 New Delhi Auto Expo: Chevrolet Sail Hatchback

Article by Christian A., on January 10, 2012

General Motors built the Chevrolet Sail hatchback to appeal to the emerging markets in the world. Set to start selling later this year, the Sail hatchback shows off a sporty style on both its exterior and interior. For the last year and a half, the engineers at the GM Technical Center – India in Bangalore worked to design the engineering the platform for India to guarantee that the Sail hatchback and other vehicles that use this platform will be a good fit to the needs of the Indian market.

The distinctive styling cues of Chevrolet are evident in the front, including a dual-port grille adorned with a gold bowtie. The hood shows muscular cut-lines that offer a three-dimensional look. Its waistline lends a dynamic stance when viewed from the side. It has body proportions that provide a perfect ratio of a long front and short rear.

It has a lower stance in front that rises to a taller stance in back. The Sail hatchback’s interior is roomy, airy and bright, and it uses Chevrolet’s dual-cockpit design. Meanwhile, its sporty instrument panel with chrome-plated accents comes with a radio, CD player and music Aux-in interface.

The Sail hatchback is perfect for the family as it could comfortably accommodate as many as five people. The Sail hatchback optimizes interior space with its fuel tank positioned in the middle of the car and short front and rear overhangs.

It has a high roof design that provides sufficient headroom even for taller passengers. The belongings of passengers may be neatly stored in several spaces. Powering the Sail hatchback are GM India’s newest Smartech engines, which offer an oustanding combination of high power, high fuel efficiency and low emissions. Gasoline as well as diesel engines will be available.
