Following the recent launch of the all-new 2024 Chevy Sail sedan in Chile, General Motors is readying the debut of the hatchback variant of Chevrolet‘s new popular small car in the South American country.
The automaker plans to introduce the all-new Chevy Sail hatchback in Chile at the beginning of the 2024 calendar year to strengthen the brand’s offering in what continues to be the largest and most popular segment of the Chilean automotive market. As such, the upcoming five-door hatchback version of the new fourth-generation Sail will debut very soon in the country as the newest member of the redesigned nameplate’s lineup.
In particular, the all-new Chevy Sail hatchback will mark the return of the two-box configuration of the model and will become the first five-door variant in the successful nameplate’s history in Chile – where the Sail has been marketed since 2011 exclusively with a four-door sedan body. The last Chevy Sail hatchback was sold in a few markets worldwide during the car’s second generation.
As with the sedan variant, the all-new Chevy Sail hatchback will be exactly the same vehicle that debuted worldwide in Mexico in early December 2022 as the all-new 2024 Chevy Aveo hatchback. The new version will complement the offering of the fourth-generation Sail in the Chilean market and will stand out for its youthful design, class-leading interior space with a large trunk and folding rear seats, as well as a comprehensive equipment list.
In fact, the Chevy Sail hatchback will share most of its features with the sedan version, including its powertrain consisting of a naturally aspirated 1.5L engine that develops 98 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque. The powerplant may be coupled to a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission.
The all-new Chevy Sail hatchback will debut soon in Chile, where the new variant of the brand’s best-selling model in the local market is scheduled to go on sale during the first half of 2024. The new Sail hatchback will be manufactured in the same SAIC-GM-Wuling plant in China where the sedan units that are already available in the Chilean market are produced.
