Sail Overview

For those who wish to have a luxury sedan but at an affordable price range, Chevrolet Sail might be the best choice for you. It falls under the sub-compact sedan segment and is one of the perfect examples of a blend of amazing human engineering with comfort and convenience. The US automaker introduced this model to the globe for those customers, who want to experience the ownership of a luxury sedan that also delivers high-quality performance. In the Philippines market, Sail has been lined up as the most popular family cars. The Chevrolet Sail is available in three different variants – LT manual, LT automatic, and LTZ automatic. There are two engine options available for the Sail – a 1.3-litre inline-4 mill with a power output of 99 hp and a 1.5-litre DVVT inline-4 mill with a power output of 107 hp. The Sail features a subtle cabin space that offers a considerable amount of space to its occupants. The Sail is priced between PHP 791,888 and PHP 917,888.

Chevrolet Sail Interior & Features

As you get inside the Chevrolet Sail, you will notice that the automaker has kept the design and layout to minimal but the overall ergonomics ooze out practicality with complete focus on functionality. Coming to the dashboard, we see a three-spoke steering wheel which has silver garnishing to make it glossier. The instrument console behind the steering wheel looks conventional, but upgrading the otherwise simple style quotient is the blue backlit on the dashboard screen. 

The centre-instrument console although has a refreshing design with overflowing shades, but it looks a bit antiquated due to absence of a touchscreen infotainment system. Instead, you get a functional 2-DIN music system with ubiquitous features of Bluetooth, audio and automatic climate controls. To check for a list of prominent features, we do not see any major cosmetic elements that can speak for the interior aesthetics. For the essential feature list, we have the electrically adjustable and foldable rear-view mirrors, adjustable steering wheel, height-adjustable driver seat and electric sunroof. 

The cabin space offered by Chevrolet Sail is pretty enough to accommodate all occupants with utmost comfort and convenience. There are adequate legroom and headroom for all the five passengers. 

Sail Exterior

Just like the interior design and layout, the exterior aesthetics of Chevrolet Sail are also subtle, simple and minimalistic by design. Sail is built on the previous-generation platform, which somehow subdues its style game among the cars from the same segment. The front fascia of the car is highlighted with split chrome grille with the brand’s logo housed in the middle of the grille design. What looks premium is the chrome outlining on both sides of the front grille. The headlamps are present, but the lack of LED Daytime Running Lights is a miss.  

The side profile of the Chevrolet Sail looks a little elongated, owing to the long wheelbase. There is nice contouring of curves and sharp character lines, running all over the body of the car. This also enhances the otherwise subtle view of the side profile of the car. The rear profile also looks masculine and sportier due to the sharp kinks on the boot lid and a tail-lamp cluster. Dimensions wise, the Chevrolet Sail looks like a premium sedan which does make an impact while the car is on roads. 

Chevrolet Sail Ride & Handling

The suspension duties are handled by Macpherson strut and stabilizer bar at the front and non-independent torsion beam at the rear. The set-up works together to offer a pleasurable ride to the passengers. The steering wheel is also light in weight, which allows the driver to have a better grip at busy city traffic roads or at highways. 

Sail Engine & Fuel Consumption

Under the bonnet, the Chevrolet Sail has two engine options – a 1.3-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre petrol engine. While the former produces 100 PS of power and 127 Nm of torque, the latter is good enough to churn a maximum power output of 110 PS and a peak torque output of 141 Nm. While the 1.3-litre engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the 1.5-litre mill is being offered only with a 4-speed torque converter.

Chevrolet Sail Braking & Safety

The Chevrolet Sail is equipped with all the essential basic and standard safety features. The list includes dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, seatbelt pre-tensioners with force limiters, ISOFIX mounts for child seats, reverse parking sensors, and engine immobilizer.

Sail Verdict

The Chevrolet Sail is one of the most compact sedans available in the Philippines market. Not just that, the car is an ultimate package of everything you expect from a sedan. From style to comfort, to decent power and superb practicality, Sail offers almost everything that you can look for in a sedan in its price range.

Sail also offers a very satisfactory fuel economy that makes it a perfect car for daily commute as well as long journeys. Sail ends up being practical in the basic aspects, such as performance, ride quality, and the cabin space inside which makes it one of the best options for a family-oriented buyer.

    Another piece of art that is born into the family of Chevrolet. This manufacturer has never disappointed or stayed up to its level of uniqueness in any new drops till date. The sub compact sedan has enough spacious rooms for comfortable driving. What makes me more into the car is its high fuel efficiency saving me some extra penny! Being Read More

    The car is best for the ones looking for comfort in driving and fuel efficiency by keeping aside luxurious infotainment systems. The car really falls short on the installation of any entertainment features. But the engine conduction and manually operable transmission paired with a 5-speed gearbox provide enough smoothness in the machinery of the car. Look wise the car is Read More

    I bought the Sail in 2019 a few days after the car was introduced here. This is a rather straightforward and practical car and is often the first sedan for those upgrading from a hatchback. The 1.3-litre engine is a good performer within the city. I wanted a car for taking me to the office and back. There’s a decent Read More

    Among all other sedan cars that I have owned so far, I loved owning my Chevrolet Sail and I think it's the best of offerings ever made by the automaker. The car is worthy of all the good compliments given in the form of reviews so far and I won't deny but I personally checked all of them before I Read More

    The Chevrolet Sail is one such Sedan that I have loved owning. Being one of the best offerings by the automaker, the car is indeed worthy enough to stand to its spec sheet in the showroom. I’ve been using the car for over three weeks now and have been using it as my daily commute vehicle and find it to Read More

    I am quite overwhelmed since the day I have purchased this car. Never knew traveling can be so fun filled and luxurious till I bought this. The car has more than enough space within. That implies extra headroom and legroom inside. The extra space within denotes you can travel for long span on this without getting exhausted. The legroom and Read More

    Looking for a budget mid-size sedan, I would suggest looking no further than Chevrolet Sail. The design may be dull and monotony, but you need to pay keen attention to the approach of design which makes it simplistic, yet effective. The power delivery is consistent, and you will enjoy the ride on all terrains. The sharp turns can be made Read More

    I love the Chevy Sail for its simple approach. It is nothing fancy at all but manages to get the job done without much fuss. One big reason why I bought it and would recommend it to buyers like me is the price. It is very friendly to the pocket. Though being affordable, it does not compromise on the safety Read More

    The Sail is due for an update and it is slightly starting to fall behind the competition, this is what I feel anyway. Form over function was what I was after and the Sail fit that perfectly. It is a well-built car with lots of space and good performance! I got the automatic version, which is only 4 speed but Read More
