Chevrolet launches base diesel variant of Sail U-VA, will this be game changer ?

Chevrolet India has launched the base variant of just months old, Sail U-VA in India. The base variant, Sail U-VA PS was already present in Petrol and will now be available for Diesel variant as well.

The entry level Sail U-VA PS comes with the basic comfort features such as front power windows, electrically operated wing mirrors, air conditioner, tilt steering and fabric seats. Standard safety features include ABS with EBD.

The Sail U-VA will be powered by 1.3L Fiat engine which delivers 77 bhp of power. The new car is strategically launched at a price of 5.29 Lac, which will be apprx. Rs 30,000 cheaper than the Maruti Suzuki's Swift and even cheaper than Toyota's Liva and Nissan's Micra. Since, during this time, when a buyer is doubtful of buying diesel car, with recent hikes in Diesel prices and expected to increase more consistently for next few months, it makes a wise option for a buyer to go for lowest diesel variant than to buy petrol high end / middle level variant. In case, this strategy works, we could see Sail U-VA's sales back on track.
