For better speed, torque and smooth  and power delivery, both the powertrains are coated with Variable Geometry Intake System (VGIS). The Sail will have 5 speed manual transmission gearbox.

From outside the car looks sportier and mascular with horizontal split grille along with Chevrolet's logo in the middle. To choose from, the company offers different colors for you to choose according to your taste. The interiors will have a twin-cockpit design, central control panel that comes loaded with CD/MP3 player and a radio. The seats also have dual tone cover which enhances the sporty look of the car.
