Default Re: Chevrolet Sail (Hatchback) & Chevrolet MPV : Auto Expo 2012

Saw the enjoy MPV on 21st on the Thane to New Bombay Road.

Wifee took the snaps while I drove, could not get the front as I had to turn away onto the Palm Beach Road while it went straight ahead.

Looked shorter than the Xylo and Innova and somehow felt that if it was a 7 seater version then the luggage would have to go on the roof or the last row seats would be cosmetic.

Looks wise was longer than the Ertiga and taller like the Xylo so overall looked like a compressed mini Xylo would. The quality of the finish on the exterior seemed decent but it was overall a tall short box. And would require a carrier as well to spoil the looks further.

My friends do see Enjoy in and around Cochin. Seems it will be out soon, maybe like Chevy said, this year end.

That Enjoy should redefine boxiness and make the Xylo look extremely pretty

As per my information from a source, Sail twins would most likely be launched this festive season and the MPV during year end - early next year time frame.

Though the MPV looks like a box on wheels, I hope after such extensive testing, Chevy finds the sweet spot with the sail twins. Aveo was a competitive product that failed due to indifferent marketing and absence of diesel. Now that it is being discontinued, hope with the twins chevy takes care of that issue this time.

Smile SCOOP : Ford FIGO (I guess) facelift caught testing near Kashid Beach

With the tail light design and front, I guess this is the Ford Figo. Spotted this near Kashid beach. Driven by a gentleman with a lady as co-passenger. It just appeared from behind a bus overtaking it so I was not prepared. By time wifey pulled out the cell it was too close and zoomed past.

1st pics is a big close up

2nd is the rear view but you need to first search for the car in the pic

Mods- Request you to move this to an appropriate thread in case this is not a Figo or there is already a thread up for the same. Though when I searched, could not find a SCOOP thread for a facelifted Figo.

Strange to see the pull handles being replaced by the lift type. That is a step backward. Are you sure this was a Figo?

Default Re: SCOOP : U-VA Sail caught testing near Kashid Beach

If its the SAIL U-VA, then its rear resembles a lot like the existing Figo

Thanks for the information guys.

Default New Chevrolet Hatch? Spotted in Bangalore

Hello Everyone,

I spotted this car this morning at the EMC Corp. junction on the Outer Ring Road, in Bangalore. I was driving alone, hurrying to office, and used my 2 Mega-pixel camera phone to capture these shots.

Is it a Chevy for sure? Though the badge was covered, I am almost positive that the bulge under the covering looked like the Bow Tie logo. Besides, the nose and grille have the style of current Chevrolet cars like the Cruze and Beat. Apologies for not getting a proper frontal shot.

It looks like the Chevrolet Sail, as shown by GTO in the following post:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post2636760

Interestingly, the number plate says GJ 17 TC 101. Did they test-drive it all the way down from GJ?

Dear Moderators: If needed, please merge this topic with an appropriate thread. I was unable to find the right thread.

That's the Chevrolet Sail Hatchback. Discussion on the same has been doing the threads for a while now. But this definitely gives us a fair idea of its contours

So after-all chevrolet has removed their weird camouflage from the test vehicles. I wasn't really getting the sense of camouflaging a car which has already been showcased at the auto expo.

I would request the mods to kindly merge this thread with the existing sail(hatchback) thread.
