Pros : engine sound is very low

Cons : boot space

Look and Style a sporty look 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 upto 4--5hrs of continuous drive (highway) and beyond that its a bit unconfortable unlike innova and other SUV Pickup Initial pick up is low but once turbo opens up its 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 15KM/L in city and 17KM/L in highway Best Featureshighway 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 shouldnt blame beat but just myself, but thats one thing I feel could improve. Also a remote central locking and reverse sensors would be good which I got it added by payng more. Overall Experience Let me be very honest, I really put the car for 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 in high colors. Road clearancy on bumpy road was good, very stable and good braking conditions even on 120km/hr. Mileage will defintely impove after 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...

    Guys one update - My car music system got crashed in less than a month. After checking with Sundaram motors they couldnt do anything and they have promised to look at it during my first service :-(

    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.

    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

    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.
