On the other hand, the entry level sedan version of the car will come powered by a 1.4L petrol engine. The car is already available for sale in the foreign markets in petrol versions. The Sail line-up will be compatible with BS-IV emission norms.

Interestingly in India, it is most probable that the company will launch diesel versions of both hatchback and sedan versions of the Chevrolet Sail.
