Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

Next gen model will not be brought to India.

The Chevrolet Sail 3 was on display at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show. The ‘3’ is the name denotes the third generation that the car is in. This vehicle made its debut at the 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show and is available in the Chinese market.
