User Rating

Chevrolet Philippines took the wraps off its latest subcompact sedan, the Chevrolet Sail, last April 7 at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) 2016 held at the World Trade Center, Pasay.

The Chevrolet Sail, now on its third iteration, blazes with either a 1.3-liter engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or a 1.5-liter engine with 4-speed automatic transmission. Designed to appeal to first time car buyers, the Sail is constructed with a slender exterior and sports the brand’s signature dual-port grille design, making it exude a striking sporty appeal.

Expected to arrive in the Philippine market on June 2016, the all-new Chevrolet Sail will have the following prices:

  • Sail 1.3L L 5MT: P688,888
  • Sail 1.5L LT 4AT: P768,888
  • Sail 1.5L LTZ 4AT: P818,888

The grand unveiling of the Chevrolet Sail was kicked off by a live beat box performance and a flash mob led by the automotive brand’s newest ambassadors Zoren and Maverick Legaspi, alongside dancers and Chevrolet Philippines executives, all moving to the tune of “Let’s Do the Chevy Sail.”

Chevrolet Philippines President and Managing Director Atty. Albert Arcilla welcomed guests and members of the media to the Chevrolet booth, designed as a heritage-themed 460-square Chevy Lounge.

“With the Chevrolet Sail entering the Philippine market, we aim to fulfill the every Filipino’s dream of having their first car and their first Chevrolet,” Arcilla said.

Also on display at the Chevy hub were other Chevrolet car models, including the powerful midsize SUV Trailblazer, the city-smart crossover Trax, and the off road-ready pick-up Colorado. Chevrolet also announced promo offers for these three units on display.

The Chevrolet Trailblazer LTZ MY15 4×4 A/T gets a price slash of P100,000, while the Trailblazer L MY15 and MY16 4×2 AT now comes with an all-in down payment of P98,000. The Chevrolet Trax can be purchased for a lower down payment of P98,000 and P128,000 for the LS and LT models, respectively. Both the Trailblazer and Trax promos include a three-year LTO registration, free Chattel Mortgage, and free one-year comprehensive insurance. Meanwhile, the new Colorado 4×2 automatic is offered at a lower P138,000 all-in down payment or P60,000 cash discount.
