The entry level ‘Notchback’ from GM – Sail has been an important product for the company. This ‘CRUZE’ inspired, Mid –Sized Sedan was expected to bring in hoards of sales for the not-so-settled company.

The competent Sail with its staid stance, proportionate body, fairly good comfort, boot space, competent engines tuned for city driving at a competitive price tag was largely let down by mediocre interior quality, poor steering, recall issues and lack of outright performance.

Sail still remains an important product in the entry level segment. Come festive season, customers can get their Sails at further discounts. Chevrolet is offering Sail with attractive special benefits and discounts of up to Rs 40,000. The discount offer details can be referred below:

  • Exchange Bonus: Rs 15000
  • Loyalty Bonus: Rs 10000
  • Corporate Bonus: Rs 5000
  • Cash Discounts: Rs 10000
  • Total Benefits: Rs 40,000

For the Eastern region customers, the cash discount is Rs 2000 lesser at Rs 8000 in turn making the total benefits upto Rs 38,000.

The discount does open up new interesting options and more reasons to consider SAIL over the segment leader Maruti Swift Dzire and Amaze. Dzire, for sure is a more fun to drive car with a peppier engine but longer waiting periods, disproportionate body and commonality deteriorate the case for Dzire. To better light this fight we have provided a comparison of price difference between Sail and Swift Dzire:

With additional discounts and GM’s 3 years warranty Sail does form for itself a nice luring preposition. Almost instant deliveries in major cities and pretty good space, it scores over Dzire in many areas. Do you think that non sub-4 meter Sail with better looks, more space is a better option?
