Pros : Elegant looks, Good Mileage and low maintenance

Cons : Not as spacious as i10 and Wagon R,

Look and Style-Hi guys, I am writing this review for those who are looking for an economical small car.  I bought Chevrolet Beat LT, 7 months ago and I am very impressed with its performance.  Chevrolet Beat is endowed with eye-catching looks. No one can deny the fact that Chevrolet Beat is a beautiful car in its segment range, tail lights and curvy bumpers add on to the elegance. 

Comfort-Chevrolet Beat does not look promising on the comfort front.  Space is not sufficient to accommodate five passengers. The rear leg-room space and rear shoulder space is not sufficient to fit in 3 adults.  Pickup-Performance wise Chevrolet Beat is excellent, 1.2-liter powerful petrol engine delivers a peak power of 80.5 bhp which can beat any other car in the small car segment. Pick up and acceleration of Chevrolet Beat LT is commendable. 

Mileage-Mileage of the car is neither good nor bad, my car delivers a mileage of 12.0 kmpl in city and 16 kmpl on highways, whereas other cars in the same segment, for example, Hyundai i10 deliver an excellent mileage of 14.0 kmpl in city and 18.0 kmpl on highways. 

Best Features-Best features of the car include its elegant looks, powerful Air-Conditioner, Seat Lumbar Support and Adjustable Steering Column.  

Needs to improve-Needs to improve its rear seat comforts level like Maruti Ritz and Hyundai i10. Features are not much exciting, I think the company should add more features in the car like Ford Figo to increase its sales figures. 

Overall Experience-Overall experience with the car has been good. I have test driven Chevy Beat in different conditions and I personally feel that the car is very good compared to other cars like Hyundai Santro Xing and Hyundai i10.

    hai all, m also a proud owner of chevy beat lt full opt. the car is an eye catching one than others in this segment but frankly i would like to say about the low mileage! i think i will get 9km on town limit and a max of 12@ highways with ac. so u guys please think twice while going on it because i think the petrol rate will go high again...

    I won't agree with mileage though, it depends on driver to driver. I am getting good mileage with Beat 12.4 city and 16.7 on highways. I got refuelled at SHELL it gave me 13.7kpml city. I feel little cramped at the rear but thats OKAY not so worrying. But yes good car to own.

    ok guys me too had beat since last 3 months.. i too had problem with mileage for initial 1500-2000 kms.. but after that it fine and very much comparable to i10 magna (plz compare only with a 1.2 lt car). further check ur petrol pump accuracy and quality... i fill my beat always from a govt pump aand it is running dont worry and enjoy ur ride on beat...

    Hi guys, i owe BEAT LT,Petrol & it is really a good car.i am concerned with only one niggle which is its rear wheels making atrocious sound whenever it goes on road which is not good. Other than this i dont find any other problem. great going chevy!

    The Beat with the new SMARTECH engine is much better and refined than the earlier S-Tec engine, this new engine now delivers better refinement and is slightly better in efficiency figures too.

    i own beat lt model for the past 2 years. and my car's performance is anything but satisfactory. the car does not have a great pickup. In cities u have to move a lot on lower gears and it simply refuses to move without pressing the clutch. also mileage is an issue, i get a mileage of 10kmpl in city with ac. the pros are- ac is tremendous, car is smooth and swift to drive, stylysed front panel, beautiful exteriors! u might face difficulty initially while parking, as back glass panel and side windows are very small.!
