Auto Expo 2013: Chevrolet Sail in black gold paint job


Auto Expo 2013 Exciting Chevrolet Sail Hatchback & Notchback (10)

Like the Enjoy, the Chevrolet Sail is built on a new global passenger car platform created especially for fast-growing emerging markets and tailored for the domestic market at the GMTC-I.

Both the notchback and hatchback have adopted Chevrolet’s signature styling cues, including a dual-port front 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 both models a dynamic stance.

The interior is spacious, airy and bright, with Chevrolet’s dual-cockpit design. The sporty instrument panel with chrome-plated accents contains a radio, CD player with Bluetooth® music streaming and mobile hands-free controls with Aux-in interface.

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

The Sail is powered by new-generation SMARTECH 1.2L petrol and 1.3L diesel engines that combine high power, excellent fuel efficiency and performance, and low emissions.

Also appearing at the Auto Expo is a Sail notchback with a special black and gold finish that gives it a mean and sporty look. GM India engineers produced the gold front grille surround and mirror cover, black and gold 15-inch Magnet BMF alloy wheels, smoke effect on the headlamps and taillamps, gold illuminated sill plates, yellow gear knobs, gold seats and other touches in the interior.

Another product on the Chevrolet stand is the Sail hatchback with a 1.3L diesel engine that finished fourth out of 60 teams at last year’s Raid de Himalaya, which is one of the highest and most challenging road rallies in the world.

Preparation of the vehicle was executed under the supervision of the GMTC-I. The Sail hatchback was retrofitted with safety equipment such as a roll cage, safety seats and an under-body plate to allow it to successfully traverse the unforgiving terrain.
