2014 Chevrolet Beat Diesel

 

 

While the idea of an affordable diesel came into existence with the Tata Indica, the Chevrolet Beat was the car that changed the rules of engagement. First launched in 2011, the Beat diesel came at a time when buyers were looking to make the shift from petrol for it was turning brutal on the pocket. And whilst things started off well, the Beat diesel failed to maintain momentum. In an attempt to find that constancy, General Motors has given its hatchback a facelift. Will it succeed in what it has set out to achieve?

Exterior Styling / Design

Thanks to it being showcased as a concept car in the first Transformers movie, the Chevrolet Beat turned a lot of heads even before the launch. Many moons have passed since its launch but even today the Beat continues to be one of the best looking hatchbacks in its class. While its 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. At the back the updated Beat gets reworked tail lights and a new spoiler that includes LED lights. The profile remains unchanged. Despite the fact that changes on the 2014 model aren’t many, not many would say that the Beat fails to impress in terms of styling.
