    Does GM’s re-engineered-for-India Sail U-VA hatchback hit the nail on the head? Read our comprehensive road test review to find out.

    Designed entirely in China by GM and SAIC, the Sail U-VA’s lines are simple and you can tell the designers have played it safe with the styling. That said, there is a lot to like about the Sail’s design. The frontal styling, for one, is quite attractive, with the simple rendition of Chevrolet’s split grille, the angled headlamps and the raised bonnet being focal points. The longish front overhang, rising window line and small tail section also give the Sail a sporty, tipped-forward stance.

    However, the cliff-face tail, with its vertically aligned tail-lamps and bumper-mounted number plate, looks a bit too generic. We’d also have liked to see pull-type door handles rather than the cheaper lift-type ones.
