The Chevrolet Sail hatch will be the replacement for the competent but outdated Aveo U-VA, and will fit, price-wise, between the Beat and the upcoming Sail sedan. It shares its platform with the sedan and even has an identical wheelbase this means that interior space will be on par with the sedan. The differences will be in the trim levels. Power will be derived from a 1.2-litre petrol with 85PS. A diesel will be required as well, so GM will either use the Beats 1.0 litre in a slightly higher state of tune or use a new powerplant. The latter will be highly unlikely, as GM will have to meet tough price targets if they are to rack up the numbers with the Sail. However, if they do choose to use a new engine, expect a four-cylinder displacing less than 1.5-litres that will be shared with the sedan, but in a lower power output for greater fuel efficiency.
