Hi, my family owns a Chevrolet Beat since 2011 and I have been driving that car ever since. It has done 20000 kms. I am a big car enthusiast (always wanted to write a review). Here goes, Firstly let's start with the engine and transmission. It is a 1.2 liter, 4 cylinder petrol unit and so obviously it is a very smooth motor (there is not that thrumming sound of the 3 cylinder unit) but this engine does not like to be revved. The power is served up in a linear fashion. The gearbox is a 5-speed manual unit. It is okay but not a very good one. It feels a bit notchy. The clutch is also very light. Secondly, let's come to the steering. It is a hydraulic power steering. Frankly speaking, I think this is the best part of the car. It is an absolute joy, you can feel the road, it is also of the right size (fits in your hand perfectly). Thirdly there is the suspension. It is slight stiffly sprung suspension, which means handling in the corners is reasonably good. This does not mean it is any way uncomfortable, it also rides well (tends to crash through the bigger potholes, though). Then there is the interior. It is all black interior. The plastics are hard but textured and also it is well built. (will last for a long time). It is also a funky looking one. The seats are well cushioned and quite comfortable and the car reasonably spacious enough. Then the styling. Well, what to say, it is stylish, isn't it?? According to me the biggest disadvantages of this car is 1)- poor mileage (around 11kmpl in city and 14kmpl in highway) 2)- poor A.C.(it's rubbish) 3)- expensive parts Servicing is good, though. For the first 3 years, it is a breeze. Reception is good and does not keep you waiting. CONCLUSION- Although there are a few drawbacks it is a fun little car which can be enjoyed for some spirited driving.
