General Motors starts teasing Chevrolet Sail sedan - Launch on 01st Feb ?

Chevrolet India starts its teaser videos of Sail sedan on its official Facebook page. The American car maker has been teasing the videos and giving us tits and bits of information and hints to speculate more about the sedan.

The Sail sedan has been spotted several times testing across the country - in Gujarat, Pune, Delhi etc. and the car is said to have covered whole of India before the official launch of the car in the market.  The car has also find its space on the webspace and recently it had hit the official website of GM India thereby giving hint that the launch is sometime soon - it is also said that the launch would happen on 01st Feb 2013 - stay tuned.

The car would be similar to its sibling Sail U-VA , which has already launched in India, as far as interiors is concerned. However it would be a three box when compared to its hatchback cousin Sail U-VA. Similar to the Sail UVA hatchback, the sedan will get a long list of features that include options like an engine start stop switch and Bluetooth enabled entertainment system. Powering the Sail sedan would be a 1.3 litre Multijet engine and the 1.2 litre petrol motor that the car would share with the hatchback sibling. Spacious interiors, modern styling and diesel engine should see Sail sedan giving some tough time to high selling Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire.

The 1.2 litre petrol motor that will power the Sail sedan churns out 86 PS@6000RPM and 113 Nm@ 5000 RPM. The engine boasts of an ARAI certified FE figure of 18.2 km/l. The 1.3 litre motor, on the other hand, produces 78 PS@ 4000 RPM and 205Nm@1750 RPM. The diesel engine has an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 22.1 km/l
