Chevrolet New Beat
Chevrolet New Beat Preview
Since its launch in India in 2011, the Chevrolet Beat has remained largely unchanged, except of course for fa few minor changes. This year, the American car maker will introduce the new Beat with a fresh exterior design. Up front, the Beat gains its inspiration from the Beat Activ concept showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. It sports a larger grille than its predecessor, and they are flanked by relatively flatter headlamps. The overall silhouette will remain more or less identical. The interior, however, is expected to get more changes with a revised dashboard design, refreshed instrumentation cluster with touchscreen infotainment system. Like the current generation model, upcoming Beat too will come with a decent list of features include Bluetooth telephony, ABS, Airbags and more.
Under the hood, the new Beat will be offered with the same engine options as the current generation model – a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged diesel and a 1.2-litre four-pot petrol. Some reports suggest that the new Beat powerplant will be retuned to deliver improved performance.
When the new Chevrolet Beat gets launched, it is expected to be priced around Rs 4.2-6.5 lakhs. It will continue to lock its horns with the Maruti Suzuki Celerio Wagon R and the Tata Tiago.
