2010 Chevrolet Sail




Let’s just all pray that the rumors about our next Aveo being based on the new Chinese market Sail aren’t true.

Really. Even as a prototype form, that interior seems pretty horrible.
Again. Let us pray…

  1. GM still doesn't understand small cars. The exterior of this car is extremely conservative … there's not an interesting or original line or curve on it. And the interior is just about perfect for a ten year old Korean subcompact.

    Car companies should take more risks (not fewer as in the case of this Sail) with the design of their smaller cars. To draw in entry level buyers you need to offer something that stands out … something interesting … something people can get a little excited about. Think Citroen 2CV, think Morris Minor, think Austin Mini, think mid-80's Honda Civic. Don't think shrunken Chevrolet Impala.

  2. I think the exterior looks good and the interior isn't THAT bad. Other than the awkward indentation around the glove box, it's no worse than the Fiesta interior.

  3. Guys, it is a preproduction model.

    Often preproduction models don't yet have texture or graining added to the plastics so they are just smooth like you see on this vehicles dash.

    It isn't going to look that bad when it is released.

    Regardless, GM still can't make a small car.

  4. Slap a GM steering on and voila! a US Aveo. lol.

    I think the reason that GM does not seem to care about the design on small cars here because the profit margin is slim. It costs the same whether you put a nice piece of dash or a seat in the small or a big car. There is more 'play' with big car.

    You have GOT to be kidding.

    Have you ever even sat in a Fiesta or really studied a picture of one? It is WORLDS better than this POS with a soft touch dash and quality materials.

    This is Daewoo junk.

  6. We're back to Vegas, Chevettes, and Pintos? Are things that bad?

    God help us all.

    IT GET'S WORSE: Some folks are wasting their hard-earned cash on junk that makes this look good! (Those folks drive CR-V's, Corollas, Rio's and Civics!) If you can't drop $30k these days, you can't have a decent car!

    Not a single vehicle you listed is junk, aside from the Rio.

    The CR-V is a fantastic vehicle for what it is and so is the Civic.

  9. I've seen the new Aveo… This most certainly is not it! Everyone here stating how GM still cannot build a good small car are going to be stunned… The Fiesta is nice, but it has nothing on the new Aveo…

    Consumer Reports doesn't seem to think so.

    Go sit down, kid.

    BS.

    Daewoo can't build a nicer vehicle than a European Ford. Daewoo can't even produce a competent MIDSIZE vehicle.

    I'll put $50 bucks on it that the new Aveo is going to be a POS that still trails the competition.
