The Sail hatchback, which will go on sale later this year, is built for the world’s emerging markets. Engineers at the GM Technical Center – India in Bangalore spent the past year and a half engineering the platform for India to ensure that the Sail hatchback and other vehicles built on the platform will meet the requirements of the Indian market and Indian car buyers.

The Sail hatchback’s exterior and interior design exudes Chevrolet’s sporty styling. The front view features Chevrolet’s signature styling cues, including a dual-port grille adorned with a gold bowtie. The hood features muscular cut-lines that provide a three-dimensional look. From the side, the unique waistline gives the Sail hatchback a dynamic stance. Its body proportions offer a perfect ratio of a long front and short rear, with a lower stance in front that moves upward to a higher stance in back. The interior of the Sail hatchback is spacious, airy and bright, with Chevrolet’s dual-cockpit design. The sporty instrument panel with chrome-plated accents contains a radio, CD player and music Aux-in interface.

As a family car, the Sail hatchback can seat up to five people in comfort. With its fuel tank placed in the middle of the car and short front and rear overhangs, the Sail hatchback maximizes interior space. Its high roof design offers ample headroom even for taller passengers. A series of well-thought-out storage spaces provides room for passengers to stow their belongings.

The Sail hatchback will be powered by GM India’s latest Smartech engines, which present an excellent combination of high power, high fuel efficiency and low emissions. Both petrol and diesel engines will be offered.

In line with Chevrolet’s global focus on safety, the Sail hatchback features safety cage body construction supported by the extensive use of high-strength steel. The fuel tank is protected by steel beam-rolling ribs, ensuring the utmost safety for driver and passengers.
