Chevrolet Beat

INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

Chevrolet has crafted funky interiors for the Beat. It gets a digital tachometer, with a centre console that fuses well with the entire theme of looking young. The second row knee room and the boot are a bit of problem on the Beat, else everything else is well sorted.

The Beat is trendy on the inside, and the interiors have been designed to attract those young at heart. The Beat gets a digital tachometer and a cool blue backlit speedometer dial that makes the design look futuristic. The touch and feel of the plastics is decent and the overall fit and finish of the plastics is good for the price tag it comes for.

There is have sufficient head room and leg room for the front passengers and at the rear, though the Beat is a bit tight on knee room in the second row. It comes embellished with airbags, ABS, in-dash music system and alloys. The number of brownies on the Beat is good enough for the total moolah you pay.

PS: PS is the entry-level model of the Chevrolet Beat. In the PS avatar, the Beat gets tachometer, HVAC, full fabric seats and manually adjustable ORVMs.

LS: The LS gets ORVMs on each side, silver instrument cluster, passenger side vanity mirror, rear parcel tray, front power windows, rear split-fold seats, day and night IRVM and central locking.

LT: This is the top of the line version, and it comes loaded with all the bells and whistles. It gets integrated music system with USB connectivity and four speakers, auto AC, sunglass holder, rear power windows, ABS, dual airbags and front fog lamps, apart from gets ORVMs on each side, silver instrument cluster, passenger side vanity mirror, rear parcel tray, front power windows, rear split-fold seats, day and night IRVM and central locking that are available on the LS.

ENGINE:
Ed's take:

The 1.2-litre petrol engine of the Beat has performance, while the diesel has economy. Both target different set of audience. For power and less driving, the petrol is ideal and those who travel more especially in the city, diesel is the pick of the lot.

1.0-litre diesel engine:

Under the sculpted hood of the Beat, lies a three-pot 936cc mill— which is actually the 1.3-litre multijet minus the one cylinder. This engine is fairly refined and the regular diesel clatter surprisingly has been muted. The engineers at General Motors have scrupulously tuned for low levels of vibrations even at idle, despite it being a three-cylinder. The power delivery is fairly linear and there is not much of what we call as turbo lag. The engine lacks the punch which is needed for overtaking and once out on an open road, the engine feels the need for more power. The 5-speed manual transmission is slick with the throws are positive. Even the gear knob is small and easy to grab. The ARAI claimed figure for the Beat diesel is 25.44kmpl.

1.2-litre petrol:

Beat gets the 1.2-litre engine from the Chevrolet’s S-Tec II spectrum that churns out about 80bhp of power and a 108Nm of respectable torque. The noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels are low, just like any other modern petrol engine. The power delivery is fairly linear, but for overtaking one needs to downshift. When out on the highway, the engine feels a bit out of steam. The engine comes mated to 5-speed manual transmission and the gearshifts on are a wee bit rubbery.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Ed's take:

The ride of the Beat is fairly smooth and composed; the secondary ride is a bit jittery at higher speeds. Being a tall boy, the Beat handles well when driven within city limit speeds. The steering is also weigh up well, as the speed increases.

All the cars in this segment have a sorted ride as the suspension doesn’t jiggle and disturb the peace of the occupants. Road undulations are well-taken care by the suspension. The Beat has decent ride suppleness as it underpins the softest suspension set-up that glides over potholes.

The handling is the only aspect which differs on the three. The suspension set-up is the soft on the Beat. Drive it quickly around a bend and you shall notice the body roll as this hatchback lack the dynamism that other competition possesses. Handling of the Beat is decent, but the skinny tyres reduce confidence as they run out of grip and tend to under steer. The steering wheel feels a bit numb and it isn’t joy to push it around bends.

Hyundai EON

INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

The Eon has amazing interiors, especially when you consider the cost of the product. Being a tall boy-ish design, there is sufficient head room. It is the kneeroom which is a bit tight, though better than the Alto.

 

Step inside the Eon and you will be surprised by the quality of the interiors. Not only go they look up market, but also their feel is good. The price tag of the car seems to be a great value for money for the overall package. The packaging seems to be more of a B segment car, than an A segment.

 

The space in the Eon is decent, but is much better than its biggest rival, the Alto. The seats of the Eon are comfortable and are of better quality when compared to its competition. The boot space is a bit smaller than what we would have expected. The brilliant ‘Toroidal’ tank in the new Hyundai Eon LPG variants endow with much bigger boot space instead of the archetypal and expected LPG-fitted models that are available in the market today.

 

D Lite: This is the base variant of the Hyundai Eon and it has no power steering, power windows and is a standard model with child lock, chrome radiator grille, engine immobilizer, rear seat belts, cup holder, remote tail gate release, low fuel indicator and 2-tone beige and brown interiors.

 

D Lite Plus: This is the improved base model of Hyundai EON and has the same engine specifications and same features as D-Lite but has an AC and full wheel cover.

 

Era Plus: This version gets tinted glass, body color bumpers are found in this model of Hyundai EON. Other specs are same as predecessor but a metallic finish centre console and electric power steering are introduced in this.

 

Magna Plus: It gets utility options like rear parcel tray, 2 DIN Radio+CD+MP3 Audio with 2 speakers in front, USB Port, Aux-in Port and a digital clock, Hyundai EON Magna is the best option for you.

 

Sportz: Hyundai EON Sportz is the suitable choice for those looking for added safety and convenience features. This is the high end variant with all the features offered in other models along with front fog, lamps, driver side airbag, keyless entry, body color outside mirror and door handles, metallic finish 3 spoke steering wheel unlike other variants which have 2 spoke steering. It also adorns metallic finished inside door handles, which enhance the sporty style on EON.

ENGINE:
Ed's take:

The Eon has a three-pot engine that is derived from Hyundai’s own Santro mill. This motor is shy of one cylinder and the drivability is decent. The new 1.0-litre engine is certainly a lot more powerful.

 

814cc: The Hyundai EON comes with 814 cc three cylinder SOHC petrol engine that exhibits a decent power of 55bhp at 5500rpm and a torque of 76 Nm at 4000rpm. This engine is Hyundai Santro’s four pot minus one. The NVH levels are low and the Korean automotive giant has done a decent job of reducing the idling for a three-pot motor, though it has some amount of rough idling. The ARAI certified mileage of the petrol version of this car is exceptionally good at 21.1 kmpl.

 

1.0-litre: The Eon is now being offered with a 1.0-litre petrol engine. This is a lot more powerful and more importantly it has better drivability than the 800cc. One doesn’t need to downshift for overtaking. This engine is perfect for this entry-level hatchback. The five-speed manual transmission has slick shifts and the box is easy to shift as well.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Ed's take:

The Eon has a pliant ride quality as the suspension absorbs all the jounces and rebounds when even driven on rough roads. The handling is decent for the car, though nothing spectacular or bad.

 

The ride of the Eon is quite pliant as it glides over potholes. The suspension irons out all the jolts on uneven surfaces and does a good job without causing any jittering to the occupants.

 

It’s not as sharp or even as planted, but the body roll isn’t excessive, and unless you do something really stupid, it will not get out of hand. Quick direction changes are also managed very well. The steering wheel is light and even the turning radius is small. This makes maneuverability easy in small streets and lane.
