Default SCOOP : A new car caught testing at Ahmednagar-Shirdi road

This car was caught testing yesterday at Ahmednagar city. Till the time I was behind him, I could get the pics but due to traffic I had to overtake him and drive just ahead of him. My car has TBHP stickers. Probably he noticed it and knowing TBHPians he slowed down and hid himself behind a bus and did not appear back

I could be wrong, but by looking at it I found it to be compact sedan as the boot was not too long.

Quite a good job I must say.!! I remember reading recently about a new Maruti sedan, positioned between the DZire and SX4. Could this be it?

Looks a regular sedan, couldn't tell much more from this view.

By judging the frequency of spotting, I would bet that the Chevy Sail sedan would be launched by June'12 end. I wonder why its hatchback cousin is not being spotted.

Looking at the bonnet it seems to be the chevy sail. You can make out the Chevy design template.

+1 to that, I too have an incling it could be launched by end June - Start July.
The Entry level sedan segment is really getting interesting. Hope Chevy gets some interesting engine options to India.

I guess it would be a replacement for the Aveo UVA
And would be similarly priced in the segment, competing with cars like the City, Vento and others in this bracket.

I spotted one last weekend on NH4 near satara toll booth. It zoomed past even before I could get camera out of glovebox.

The side profile is reminiscent of the previous generation Honda City - the quarter glass, mirror on the door and the door handles.

Just hope the interior is about as efficient and ergonomic and it gets some good engines and a VFM price tag, otherwise it is going to be a sales dud like the car it will replace.

My colleague spotted 3-4 Chevy test vehicles on Sarjapur road in Bangalore. He said it is smaller than Xylo.
