2. Chevrolet Sail 2018 Exterior

The Bowtie brand knows for certain that its customers always give lots of weight to design. The top dog 1.5 LTZ, despite not being the most handsome in its segment, it can swell with pride as it comes with a simple but functional exterior design.

No gloss bumpers, big wings, body claddings or turgid over-fenders, but the 2018 Chevrolet Sail exterior is pampered with well-chiseled façade, stylish body lines, sporty-looking lightings, curvaceous tail end, and an orange hue to boot. Broadly, this subcompact sedan is like a sexy lady who is already charming without makeup and her beauty is not merely skin-deep.

Recently, Chevy has given the latest Chevrolet Sail minor changes on the outside so as to make it fresher. The newly-updated model is currently decked with revised chrome accents on the front grille. At the same time, it likewise brags a new set of 15-inch alloys along with new wheel design.

3. Chevrolet Sail 2018 Interior

Pop the doors open and the simplicity and functionality are still names of the game. Although the 2018 Chevrolet Sail interior is equipped with a massive 9-inch touchscreen head unit and a retractable sun roof, the cabin still looks plain to some extent.

The auxiliary audio controls on the steering wheel are even not plush-looking, they are good at keeping the driver concentrating on the road while selecting tracks, adjusting audio volume or scanning radio channels. However, the stumbling block here is the poor radio signal reception of the multimedia system.

Between mini and subcompact, more Pinoys will opt for the latter partially because of more space inside. And this aspect is also where Chevrolet Sail shines best. Abundant head- and legroom are given to all passengers. Other than that, boot space is roomy enough to store two golf bags or scuba gear.

4. Chevrolet Sail 2018 Philippines: Engine & Performance

The Chevrolet Sail 1.5 LTZ is armed with a 1.5L DOHC DVVT engine which ekes out 109 hp and 141 Nm of torque. These figures are peppy enough to make your driving experience more fun and sporty. Bolted on a smooth-shifting 4-speed automatic gearbox, the Sail is highly convenient for city wanderings.

Besides, changing gears is more precise, making your drive smoother and more comfy. A manual mode is likewise present, but it is hard to see the button on the shifter.

However, NVH levels needs some improvement as the engine noise (the cooling fan to be exact) can be clearly heard in the cockpit when the vehicle is stationary. What’s more, when picking up speed, the steering becomes lighter and you’ll feel noticeable body roll when taking corners.

Nonetheless, for the most part, the currently marketed Chevrolet Sail is stable on the highways even when facing up to strong crosswinds at 150 km/h. On top of that, it can float impressively over road imperfections.
