Chevrolet has finally launched the Sail U-VA hatchback in India. The car gets two engine options — a 1.2-litre petrol engine with 86bhp of power and 113Nm of torque. The diesel is the familiar 1.3-Multijet from Fiat, which also powers the Suzuki Swift diesel. That engine develops 78bhp and 205Nm torque under the U-VA. Chevrolet claims a fuel efficiency figure of 18.2kpl for the petrol and 22.1kpl for the diesel.

Prices for the petrol version start at Rs 4.44 lakh and go upto Rs 5.57 lakh for the top version. The diesel starts at Rs 5.87 lakh and goes all the way to Rs 6.62 lakh. These prices make the Sail U-VA good values since all versions except the base petrol will get a driver side airbag as standard equipment.

The biggest news though is the arrival of Chevrolet’s 353 advantage scheme. The Sail will get 3 year Chevy promise, which means no charges for servicing and spares like oil and filters for three years. It will also get an industry first 5-year/150,000 km engine and transmission warranty, which is a first for India along with 3 year vehicle warranty.
