Beat highlights

May 18, 2017: Note: Chevrolet India will discontinue sales of all of its products in India effective December 31, 2017. Its Indian facilities will be utilised for export markets only.

Chevrolet will launch the updated Beat hatchback in India in July 2017. Once launched, it will renew its rivalry with the Ford Figo, Hyundai Grand i10, Tata Tiago and the Maruti Suzuki Ignis. In January this year, we spied the upcoming 2017 Beat, completely undisguised, inside-out. The thoroughly updated hatch will share the platform and a few of its body panels with the current Beat. The dashboard is also borrowed with subtle changes and features a dual-tone layout – black and beige with silver and chrome accents – unlike the current all-black layout. The highlight on the inside is the addition of Chevrolet's latest MyLink infotainment system, which supports both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto (probably a seven-inch unit).  We expect the automaker to launch the 2017 Beat clan, which include the Beat Essentia (compact sedan), Beat and the Beat Activ (cross hatch) in the first half of 2017. Also, these cars are expected carry over the current set of engines, likely with a slight retune. 

The outgoing Beat is available with two engine options – 1.2-litre petrol (four-cylinder) and 1.0-litre diesel (three-cylinder). The petrol puts out 77.9PS/ 106.5Nm (ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 17.8kmpl) and the diesel churns out 57.1PS and 142.5Nm (ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 25.44kmpl). Both the engines come mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

    Within a short budget I choose this car. It gave me wonderful mileage. Not very comfortable at the rear seat but with 60:40 split option even in the lower models it gave us wonderful flexibility.With 5 years extended warranty I was not under any big expense pressure. General Motors have decided to close the production. The reason best known to them.... 1

Chevrolet Beat review

Things We Like in Beat

  • Compact proportions and light controls make it just right for the city
  • Can comfortably seat four occupants
  • Goodies such as dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, automatic climate control etc. on offer
  • The diesel motor is quite frugal. ARAI-rated efficiency = 25.44kmpl

Things We Don't Like in Beat

  • Tiny 170-litre boot doesn’t take in much luggage.
  • Noise and vibration levels on the diesel could’ve been better controlled
  • No automatic variant on offer
  • Petrol engine lacks outright grunt for highway trips

Stand Out Features

  • Superbike inspired instrument cluster looks funky and cool

CarDekho Verdict

The Chevrolet Beat is a nippy runabout for the city thanks to its tiny footprint and light steering. We’d pick the diesel for its superior mileage, and power.

"If you need a quick little hatch for your errands, the Beat needs to be on your consideration list."

That said, the hatchback is due for an upgrade pretty soon, which is likely to bump up its kitty of features substantially. If you need a quick little hatch for your errands, the Beat needs to be on your consideration list.

Chevrolet gave us a hint of the 2017 Beat in the form of the near production-ready Beat Activ and Essentia compact sedan at the 2016 Auto Expo. Later on, in June, the American automaker revealed its future plans and released an official picture featuring the production-ready 2017 Beat, Beat Active and Beat Essentia. Well, now the interior of the upcoming, thoroughly updated Beat has been spied for the first time.  Read Full News

Chevrolet Showcases Spark (Beat) Activ At 2016 LA Motor Show

Chevrolet has showcased the ‘Activ’, which is the cross-hatch avatar of the American version of the Beat (second-gen Beat, known as Spark there) at the ongoing 2016 LA Motor Show. The nameplate first got the ‘Activ’ version at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo in February. That said, the Indian cross-hatch version is different compared to its American counterpart. The former is based on the first-gen Beat’s platform, while the latter features an entirely new platform. Though the front profiles of both the vehicles bear a striking resemblance.  Read Full News
