Pros : engine sound is very low

Cons : boot space

Look and Style: A sporty and an unconventional look, always makes it different. Handles for the rear doors are catchy. I liked it, therefore, I bought it. 

Comfort: Very good up to 4 - 5hr of continuous drive (highway) and beyond that its a bit uncomfortable unlike Innova and other SUV. 

Pickup: Initial pick up is low but once turbo opens up it's fantastic and unbelievable. I loved my drive on the highway where I zoomed front of big cars without any hassles. Overtaking and braking were well supported in the speed. 

Mileage: I have just completed 800km and its given me 15Kmpl in the city and 17Kmpl on the highway. 

Best Features:  Highway driving, front leg space and steering (very light). 

Needs to improve: I would have loved more boot space as I felt the need when I packed a lot for my weekend trip. I shouldn't blame beat but just myself, but that's one thing I feel could improve. Also, a remote central locking and reverse sensors would be good which I got it added by paying more. 

Overall Experience: Let me be very honest, I really put the car to test by taking it on a long trip (800km) which included 200km of pathetic road conditions. I wanted to check mileage and stability during high speed. It passed with high colours. Road clearance on the bumpy road was good, very stable and good braking conditions even on 120km/hr. Mileage will definitely improve after a couple of servicing. So overall very satisfied with what I have bought. I bought it for city driving but testing in rainy, bumpy, narrow ghat sections, long and curvy roads has convinced me, has a good value for money.

    it is a good vehicle to drive I am very happy when I drive my beat car I request all the car taking customers before going other option pls try once and make decision. I am very honestly telling. But company has to improve their spares and service points.

    I test drove it today and it seems to be a very nimble and peppy sort of fun to drive vehicle and the suspension is well sorted out .. I would recommend this over the petrol anyday...

  • ranjita |05 Sep,2011 03:15:06 PM

    i want to purchase a car and i am confused in between beat diesel and new swift vxi. i like both. please suggest.

    anil |10 Sep,2011 02:40:58 AM

    Hi Ranjita, I have not analyzed new swift vxi so it would be wrong on my part to just appreciate beat. please have a look and come up with your criteria points and take a call.

    nitin |30 Jul,2012 08:29:56 AM

    i think u cannot compare beat n swift n tat too in petrol n diesel hatches i would suggest u to go for beat if u consider mileage n the car price s not so much ... n if u want more power pick up i suggest u to go for swift if u don't care about the mileage n u know the petrol prices r hiking like nething ... rest all features u cannot match with beat swift takes over... n the resale value is more fo maruthi suzuki vehicles think think test drive both n buy which s more convincing :)

    Beat Diesel is a rubbish car Bcz as per technical terms that 1.0 lt. Diesel Engine is not sufficient for a Car with AC, after some month & year that car definitively given some problems.

    Srinivas |30 Aug,2012 04:51:08 PM

    did u take a test drive rahul,or do you own one its an awesome car with great pcikup and mileage.

    I have planned to purchase a chevy beat diesel LT optional. After a long research finally decided to go with beat. Let me know the minus points from the beat diesel car owners pls be open

  • anil |08 Oct,2011 09:12:58 PM

    just an update after long time - my mileage is 12kmpl with a/c on city conditions. i have started to feel agitated on beat diesel

    mrinal |11 Feb,2012 02:14:19 AM

    Hi Anil, Just get the fuel efficiency test done by General motors. Ask them to drive on the same road where you generally drive. I got it done today result was 16.5kmpl where as I was getting around 15 kmpl on the same road. There was a time when I was getting 12kmpl due to my redline gear shift habit :-)

    I'm planning to buy a diesel car for city driving(70km/day) Confused between beat diesel Lt and swift vdi... Pls help

    Sarath |02 Jul,2012 07:45:17 PM

    you cannot compare beat diesel and swift. swift is bigger, more powerful and very expensive compared to Beat. Go for Beat if you looking for economy. It is a good car and very friendly on your pocket.

  • Unni |22 Nov,2012 05:25:43 PM

    Hlo beat owners, pickup in the 1st n the 2nd gears can be improved by instaling ecu remping kit. Just vsit ur srvce cntre 4 more details. Perfrmce wil increase by 20% for the cheapest remaping kit. . . . It bcom 74.4 ps @ 4000 rpm.
