The new gen Chevrolet Sail 3 has been shown at the 12th Guangzhou International Auto Show and the third gen version is a big improvement over the previous one. In China the Chevy Sail has been a big success with near 1.4 million Sails being sold and now the new one takes a more aggressive approach.
Being third gen it is called Sail 3 and carries a more aggressive look at the front with eagle eye-shaped headlights along with the signature dual-port grille which is now wider. Importantly the new Sail 3 is 51 mm longer and 45 mm wider than its predecessor plus the wheelbase has been extended by 35 mm which means there is more space now.
The interior also looks much more luxurious now with details like dual-cockpit design, flowing instrument panel, dual-mode sunroof. The Sail 3 also has an option of 1.5L DVVT and 1.3L VVT engines. Overall the new Sail 3 is a big improvement and looks sharp and this new version would bring in the much needed boost to the Sail range in India also. We have no doubt the new aggressive styling, interiors and more space will mean the Sail 3 can take a big bite out of both the compact sedan space and to some extent the upper midsize sedan space also.
