"The Sail U-VA is a strong edition to our small car portfolio. With the market preferring bigger cars in the compact segment, with Sail U-VA we are able to balance our presence in the segment along with Beat," General Motors India President and MD Lowell Paddock, who hopes it to have the best selling model in the country told reporters.
