The recently launched Chevrolet Sail slotted in the entry-level sedan segment has been priced quite competitively with introductory prices ranging between Rs 4.99 lakh to Rs 7.52 lakh (ex-showroom) Delhi. 

 

The entry-level sedan segment consists of the Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire, Ford Classic, Tata Manza, Toyota Etios and the Mahindra Verito. The Swift DZire is the closest competition to the new Chevrolet Sail in terms of price. 

 

Without further ado let’s take a look at how the new Chevrolet Sail compares to its rivals in the segment:

Both the Swift DZire and the Sail are based on their hatchback siblings, both come with similarly specced diesel and petrol engines, both cars can seat five people in comfort and both cars get dual-tone interiors. The only difference is that the Swift DZire measures in under four meters in length allowing it to avail of tax breaks while the Sail is over four meters in length. This means that the Sail has a bigger boot (370 litres) compared to the Swift DZire’s that has a capacity of (315 litres). 

 

Another difference is that despite being available within the same price bracket the Sail is available in four petrol variants and four diesel variants while the Swift DZire is available in three variants of petrol and three diesel variants diesel. 

 

The basic Sail petrol/diesel comes with front power windows, anti-glare interior rear view mirror, air-conditioning and power steering while the Swift DZire LXi/LDi gets air-con and power steering but no power windows and an anti-glare interior rear view mirror is absent.
