Kind of out that is ’cause I don’t think SAIC-GM wanted to world to see just yet. The Sail hatchback will debut at the Beijing Auto Show at the end of this month but this not too good looking silver car was seen somewhere near the factory in Shanghai.
The Sail hatchback will get the same engines as the sedan that arrived last year, that is a 1.6, a 1.4 and a 1.2. Price will be several thousand rmb below the sedan which costs 52.500 and 107.900 rmb.
