GM India is running from pillar to post to promote their latest offering – Chevrolet Sail U-VA. The hatchback version of the Sail is all set to hit the stands on November 2. Soon after the launch of the hatchback, GM India will follow it up with sedan, possibly called the Chevrolet Aveo.

But beyond the Great Wall of China where the Sail was developed in collaboration with the SAIC, GM China is all set to give the Sail sedan a small facelift to keep things fresh.

Our friends from CarNewsChina report a few spyshots of the Sail sedan caught with camouflage near the Shanghai-GM factories in Shanghai.

The minimalistic camouflage suggests that this is just a mid life facelift. It will be more of a nip and tuck job than a comprehensive design change. The last time the Sail was facelifted in China was in July 2011.

Judging by the placement of the camo, one can expect a a new grille, new bumpers and new lights. Expect the Sail facelift to hit the stands in China at the April 2013 Shanghai Auto Show.

Chevy has been testing the sedan version of the Sail on Indian roads since quite some time now. So the BIG question is whether we will receive the facelifted model or the old one?
