The U-VA is one of the largest cars in its class, and it offers a lot of value: all the variants get body-coloured bumpers and beige interiors. Only the base variants do not sport ABS. There is one petrol and one diesel engine option; the petrol displaces 1.2 litres and generates 86bhp and 113Nm, while the 1.3-litre diesel is very closely related to the Fiat Multijet that most diesel Indian passenger cars are running. It makes 82bhp and 205Nm, and achieves 22.1kmpl in the ARAI cycle.
The powertrain has got an astonishing warranty of 5 years/1.5 lakh km, which no other manufacturer offers at the moment. The audio system packaged with most of the variants also has the ability to stream Bluetooth audio and accept calls. The Sail offers great value, and it is GM India's best shot at regaining market share in one of the most lucrative segments.
