Sails over bad roads


We loved the Sail UVA’s ride quality and sedan is no different.  Both the petrol and the heavier diesel have just the right suspension set up for our roads. The roads we drove on were pothole ridden over quite a distance, and both the cars performed flawlessly. None of the thuds are filtered into the cabin with the car smothering them all with reassuring confidence. The steering too feels nice and meaty without feeling too light. There is roll when going hard around corners but nothing to get worried about. The 175/70 R14 Apollo Acceleres do a great job with a fine balance of grip and ride quality. One can safely say that the Sail boasts one of the best ride quality amongst sedans.

Price it right!

 


The Sail sedan is all set to go up against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Toyota Etios and the likes which are already very well established products in the market. The Sail sedan has got the goods with its good looks, space and practicality but there are a few chinks in its armor too. The interiors lack enthusiasm and the sedan is simply just too similar to the hatch with almost everything carried over. And the only way that these negatives can be overlooked is if GM gets the pricing right. Under cutting the Swift Dzires price by a significant margin will be the key and if GM manages to do it, the cash registers will definitely start ringing!
