New Chevrolet Sail





The current Sail for the Chinese market is based on the old Opel Corsa model.
The new one pictures here is supposed to be a Chinese version of the next Chevrolet Aveo.

So this might be what we’ll get next year as the new Aveo. Or close to it.
The dash seems to have a bit of a “Mini Malibu” feel to it. Instead of the Cruse’s Opel like interior.

We’ll see….

  1. Good thing I didnt eat lunch before seeing this vomitous mess of a car. Even that green Chery looks good in comparison

  2. Wretched little thing. It's not easy to design an attractive small 4 door car, but this Aveo clone is especially bland and horrible.

  3. It doesnt matter. This still rolls out of a Factory in korea which says Daewoo above its door and then has a stick on badge put on it depending which country it goes to. ie Chev, Holden, etc.
    Cheap and nasty.
    Enough said.

  4. LOOK AT THAT DOOR PANEL!!!

    GM can't do small cars, so they outsource to Daewoo who ALSO can't do quality small cars.

    GM is a failure at pretty much everything.

  5. From the side, it looks like a Dodge Neon.

  6. Ford deserves some respect, but GM is pretty much a dead issue. GM's cars will need to be BETTER than the competition–not merely equal.
    That's unlikely, so stick with Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Subaru, Hyundai, and BMW (I excluded Mercedes because they ruined Chrysler).

  7. Wow. Thats bad. Who's in charge of design at Chevy? Some of their recent stuff is pretty nice, but this…? No one wants another Cobalt – no matter what the price point.

  8. October 13, 2009 5:50 AM Daewoo is a subsidiary of GM. ie:; it IS GM. This is for the Asian market. Ever looked at what those guys are BUYING over there? By American standards it's U_G_L_Y_! So GM did some market research and this hits the target head-on. I don't like it either–looks like something from toyota or honda– but I guess that's what it's SUPPOSED to look like. GM is not trying to take business from Lincoln or Chrysler here. It's just aimed at microboxes (FIT) through econo sedans (Corolla).

  9. This is a China-only vehicle. This is NOT what the next Aveo will look like. They want to keep this vehicle for entry level to compete with the ultra-cheap Chinese domestic cars and make room for the larger next-generation Aveo which is coming sometime next year.

  10. THIS IS NOT the New Aveo. A buddy of mine saw it in the Design studio and he says this is nothing like it. So before your inner fanboy comes out, consider the fact that we aren't getting this POS.
