Pros : Stylish, Good milage, Fit to the pocket, Rare colour selection

Cons : Right front pillar create a blind spot while turning right, Not happy with the tyres


Look and Style Looks great, and its the first reason for the selection, Front grill design and chrome plating is nice.   Comfort Riding is comfortable, smooth steerings, Grears are also good like maruthi swift. Enough space for 3 ppl in the back compartment.   Pickup Good pick up, but with A/C and 5 people it shows little slower to figo in an ascending hill top. but in highways its very powerful and easy for over takings once the turbo is charged its too powerful.   Mileage best milage was 21.96Km/Lit Results i got after doing 3 tankfull method (1) 272 km in 14.66 lit Diesel  = 18.58Km/Lit  ( with 60% A/C, mixed drive, with 4 passengers)   (2) 460 kms 25.8 lit. Diesel = 17.88Km/Lit  (with20% A/C and city ride only in heavy traffic, with 4 passengers) (3) 358 Kms.16.3 lit Diesel = 21.96Km/Lit  (without A/C, including 90 Kms bumber to bumber drive in city, with 3 passengers)   Best Features Design and interior , front console panels, enough space for keeping small things inside   Needs to improve driver seat need to be elevated 2 inches atleast. front right blind spot shopuld be eliminated.   Overall Experience best choice in this price rage, Good  milage in the  real driving condition, so far no probs.

    Last day while crossing the signal i suddenly stopped then a bike hit my back tyre and after 2 hrs i found it was punchured. I brought that tyre to Geeyam Cochin and they said it was completly damaged cant use.In signals the speed is below 30km/hr So the question is Quality of the tyre. How we can drive this vechicle above 60 km/hr. Simply a sharp stone can fully collapse the car

  • S K Dileep |22 Apr,2012 10:17:34 PM

    Yes, from other threads i think what u said was right,tubeless may be the prob, and its manufacturer is good year Tyre company. You should write to them.

  • Renis |24 Apr,2012 12:47:32 PM

    hi, whats the maintenance cost of the vehicle. how do you feel , is it inflated rates or fair enough in your view.

    skdileep |29 Apr,2012 08:41:19 PM

    Hello Renis, Actually i don't know the maintenance cost, because my car is still in free service period. i felt the front wheel hubs got heated after running long distance compared with the back wheels. so i went in to the Deedi service station, trivandrum. They checked the vehicle and said it's because of the new Disk brake, there will be more heat on front wheels, so nothing to worry and it was a cost free check up. Dileep

  • sk dileep |29 May,2012 06:52:57 AM

    I am closer to the Chevrolet's claimed 25.44 km per lit. After filling the tank, we made a trip to Kottayam through MC road then to Ambalapuzha through Tanneer mukkon bund road and reached back to Trivandrum on last Sunday. And go for a refill before reaching home when the dial shows 384 kms. To my surprise it took only 16.1 Lit of Diesel to fill back. (384 km /16.01 lit = 23.98km per lit) On 5th gear the vehicle is too smooth and produce less noise and we touched 90s in few stretches. but at 70 km/ hr. the vehicle is comfortable on 5th gear. we have 3 ppl on back seat and 2 in front. The whole trip was without A/C (just to take the mileage).

    Chetan Pujara |02 Jun,2012 02:04:34 PM

    Hi Dileep, Did you check the tank full to tank full method, How much Kms have you run in total. I am currently getting an average of 15.5 kms/Ltr at total 2900 km run with full AC on. Please let me know what is your city mileage. I Love my Beat very much and enjoying it.

    s k dileep |03 Jun,2012 07:18:07 AM

    Hello chetan, yes i did tankful method in last 4 times. my city mileage is roughly around 18 to 19 km. with usually 50% AC. But the above 23.98 was on highway alone and without A/C. in highways beat will give more mileage than city rides. A/C costs at least 2 to 2.5 kms. from a liter. usually company mileage figures are not with ac, one passenger only, and its on test ride conditions not on real roads with heavy traffics. u can go back to the original post all those figures are based on tankful. we cant compare city to city on this matter. usually i am avoiding busy city main roads instead using other byroads to reach city centers even though they are little lengthy, when ever it is possible. my car did around 4000 km. so far.

    Hi I am planning to buy a chevrolet beat Ls diesel variant.Any one advise me the same

    S K Dileep |30 May,2012 05:57:53 AM

    Hello Deena, The following is the price difference in Delhi for LS & LT Chevrolet Beat Diesel LS TCDi 478207 Chevrolet Beat Diesel LT TCDi 522021 Onre can save Rs. 43814/- by choosing LS. The Technical specs are the same in both model so fuel economy or riding comfort may not change in any manner. But the LT variant is coming with the following accessories. If we go for these from open market the cost may be higher than what we saved. But of course we have our own choice in brands especially the Audio. LT's Audio is Ok for me but sum people prefer more power out puts and beats so they can go for LS and fit those accessories. Additional Accessories available with LT from LS Body color door handle Body color OVRM Front fog lamp Body colour spoiler Roof rail Interior panels Rear power window Tilt steering Audio system Antenna Boot lamp Rear defogger Rear wiper After considering all these I felt LT is preferable good so i went for that. If u have money constraints just go for LS. But beat is a good option irrespective of LS or LT. Dileep Kumar S K

    Praveen |30 Jul,2012 12:37:23 AM

    Hi deena, Never bough this car because this is a low powered low milage car. I service is very poor and GM have less support on problems.

    anu |10 Aug,2012 10:36:45 AM

    Correct.

    anu |10 Aug,2012 10:35:44 AM

    Hi If you need under powered less milage vehicle the better is chevrolet. I am getting only 15 Km/L.

  • naikpt |30 May,2012 12:04:06 PM

    hey this is amazing mileage. you must be a good driver to achieve this figure. Smiling. Please post with more recent experience here. naik

  • dinesh |04 Jun,2012 08:11:47 PM

    Its an amazing car i get the mileage of 24 in the highways and 18 in the city with ac ........really good car and driving is also easier very smooth and all features are excellent.interior lights are really fabulous........i like my beat really well....................wat a car...........................

    s k dileep |08 Jun,2012 07:06:19 AM

    What Mr. Dinesh said is true, A swiftian for the past 5 years, after a drive in my car told its really comfortable, and never felt like driving a Diesel vehicle. This is higher end technology in diesel engine history.

  • Shakeel bhat |13 Jun,2012 06:52:49 PM

    I am going to get a vehicle very soon, insaullah, i am in confusion regardig the vehicle type, i am thinking of beat diesel but some friends are advising me against it, kindly give me your valuable suggestions, i ll be grateful.

    Naresh |06 Jul,2012 05:35:24 PM

  • RAJESH |30 Jun,2012 04:42:18 PM

    I am planning to buy a diesel hatchback,i am confused between ritz and beat,can anyone suggest me a good suggestion

    Sarath |02 Jul,2012 08:35:36 PM

    you can get a full option beat for a price of ritz base model! Suggest you take a good test ride of Beat Diesel and I am sure you are gonna love that car.

  • dileep |02 Jul,2012 07:06:55 AM

    Hi Rajesh, recently my colleague brought one ritz ldi he told me Maruthi gave few offers and exchange bonus for his old vehicle. so he got the base thing for arround Rs.6,00,000/-. but its without power window audio system, auto A/C fog lamp etc.all these costs around some thing between 35,000/- so the vehicle costs 6,40,000/-. Beat costs less than this anyhow and more mileage, if you are mileage conscious. And after few weeks in his new car he told me the beat have more riding comfort, smooth gear shifts and suspension, and steering is too light. so its up to you to decide

  • Mullai |04 Jul,2012 11:16:24 PM

    Hi ,Im looking to go for a diesel hatchback im confused to go for Polo or Beat ?? Howevr im afraid to go in for Beat based on the bad tyres comment given above , can sumone give ur suggestion :)

    dileep |06 Jul,2012 06:23:57 AM

    hello Mr. Mullai, My car tyres never showed any prob till this day. But one have to check the pressure regularly once in 15 days for better mileage and riding comfort, and its applicable to all car tyres. My recent visit to the dealer with a friend for selecting a car for him. And i have asked them but they never heard of a tyre complaint like the one posted above. Any way you must contact others owners in your area too. Dileep

    Jayant umra |11 Sep,2012 03:25:12 PM

    Mr.Deelip could not give answer I asked was why beat diesel LT optional with 1199cc is not launched? & why ??

    james |04 Oct,2012 03:00:17 PM

    Chevy beat diesel got a good sales record in Sept 2012 - 4539 cars

    Mukund |12 Dec,2012 11:58:55 AM

    Hello All, If you go and check swift, Ritz & Beat. When you take test ride first take swift & ritz then take test ride of Beat. Beat is good car comparatively swift & ritz because all feature which is available in swift & ritz same or more features available in beat. Millage is also good(It depends on you how you drive). Price is also less comparably swift & ritz. Chevrolet giving 45000km or 3 years servicing warranty during this warranty your servicing bill is not more than 23000 approx. if it going up company will reimbursement your extra payment. i have already booked my new beat LT.

    Kiran |19 May,2013 04:41:43 AM

    I am planning for Chevrolet Beat Diesel LS. Do you what makes difference to choose LT model car, please advise me on that. Thanks
