The Chevrolet Sail 3 debuted on the 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show. The ‘3’ is a fuzzy marketing thingy referring to the ‘third generation’ Sail in China, although this 3 is more of a facelift of the second generation than an entirely new car, and the Chinese Sail started life as a Buick, not as a Chevy.

The outgoing Sail for comparison, it debuted in 2010 and was last facelifted in 2012. Price starts at 56.800 yuan and ends at 79.300 yuan. Engines: 1.2 liter four-cylinder with 86hp and a 1.4 liter four-cylinder with 102hp.

The Sail 3 gets new 1.3 liter and 1.5 liter four-cylinder engines with 99 and 109 horses respectively. Launch on the Chinese car market is scheduled for December. Price will remain about the same.  The Chevrolet Sail 3 is made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture.

An updated interior but basic design is the same (compare). The miniscule LCD screen is new, the old Sail didn’t have any, but looks like it time-traveled from the early 1990’s.
