While the Beat's design hasn’t really aged, General Motors has given the 2014 version minor cosmetic updates. The refreshed Beat gets a larger grille, redesigned bumpers with chrome housing for the fog lamps and blackened out headlamps up front.

The Chevrolet Beat is a hatchback for those who want a stylish run-about, which is fun to drive while being easy to maintain and frugal to run.
The Chevrolet Beat is the most popular Chevrolet model on sale in India at present. The Beat hatchback may be quite a few years old and internationally a new generation of the Beat has already been revealed but this car will stay on sale for at least a year from now. It takes on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio and Hyundai Grand i10 in the mid-level hatchback segment. Right before the Celerio diesel was introduced, the Beat had the smallest diesel engine in the country, one that made it quite a popular car in major cities. Prices of the Chevrolet Beat range from Rs.4.20 to 6.28 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi)
The Beat is a stylish City runabout which was quite a bold design move from GM when it was introduced. Bold styling gives the Beat a lot of presence and appeal. Those large headlights, new Chevrolet family grille and fresh bumper post the refresh make the Beat look quite attractive even now. The Beat received a facelift last year and part of that facelift in addition to the grille and bumper were the fog lamp housings. The flared wheel arches remain and the tail lamp cluster gets a minor rethink.
The Beat is as quirky on the inside as it is on the outside. The instrument cluster looks out of a Sci-fi movie and centre console with its blue backlit dials look cool. The overall design and control stalks remain the same. The Beat is now offered with a few more storage shelves and fresh upholstery design. Space inside is adequate but a tad less than its rivals. Seating position is high though so view out of the cabin is excellent.
The Beat is offered with two engine specifications. The petrol engine is a 1.2-litre mill developing 78PS of power and 107Nm of torque while the diesel is a 1.0-litre unit dishing out 57PS and 142Nm. Neither engine appeal on the performance front but the diesel is quite a efficient block. ARAI rated mileage for the diesel is an impressive 25.44kmpl while the petrol returns 18.6kmpl. Both come mated with 5-speed manual gearboxes. No automatic option is available.
The Beat has a cramped rear bench and a small boot. It competes against rivals from stronger brands like Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai but neither offers such a stylish design. Driveability and refinement is excellent at the Beat diesel in particular is good value for money.

By manu yadav on 14 Feb 2013Performance of the engine is not very good if you compare it to the other 1,200cc engines, but still it is not that under powered the way people make it out to be. It is one of the most stylish cars in market, only the Volkswagen Polo and the Fiat Punto come close to it. The interiors are the most exciting aspect of this car. It gives around...Read More...
