Chevrolet Sail Specifications

"The prime specs of Chevrolet Sail are listed here. The overall length, width of the car should give you an idea about parking space it require. The ground clearance (lowest part of the car to the ground) will give you the measure of water wading capability and confidence of Sail's capability to run over potholes and speed breakers. However GC (ground clearance) won't tell everything. Other important factors like approach angle, breakover angle and departure angle is required to assess the cars' ability to run in rained indian roads and light off road tracks.Engine specs of Sail are also listed here. With the power (in bhp) and torque (Nm) figures the most important ratios - power to weight ratio of Sail and torque to weight ratio. The displacement (in cc) is the measure of cubic capacity of the engine. Earlier there was a notion, larger engines produce more power and torque however with the invention of advanced technologies this is no longer true."

Poor Engine Performance


Good: Look and Style

Bad: Noisy Engine

Chevrolet Sail has been designed with an appealing style but the engine of the car is not so good. It has one irritation problem in which if we try to start in first gear or if trying to rake reverse gear in the city traffic, the car would embarass which leads to the engine halting. Several times it created knocking sound and the whole engine got shake. Apart from this the Sail would behave properly. The company could be able to solve this problem but they are not willing to do so. The engine performance of the car is really poor.

Good Value for the Money

By sathyananda us

Good: Fuel efficient engine

Bad: NA

After test driven Honda Amaze, Toyota Etios, Maruti Dzire finally I have chosen Chevrolet Sail and was impressed with the appearance of the vehicle. The vehicle offers good driving comfort and great suspension. The mileage is also really superb compared to its competitor cars in its segment. Since the power steering is very good, we would feel very comfort with city driving. There is no occurence of engine noise inside the cabin. Overall it is an excellent car and good value for the money.
