My experience with a beat test drive. 


1) Great looks and styling. 

2) New and innovative instrument cluster. 

3) Low turning radius. 

4) Value for money. 

5) Great A/C. 


1) Humming noise inside the cabin at higher speeds. 

2) Grumpy gear, does not feel as smooth as i10 or Wagon R. 

3) Engine looses power when A/C is turned on. 

4) Rear suspensions are a little on the stiffer side. 

5) The engine been a 1199cc is not as responsive like the Swift or i10. 

6) Hydraulic power steering system is not as good as that of i10 or Swift (Electronic Power Steering). 

7) Smaller rear windows make it difficult for the passengers at the rear to see the road. 

8) Very small boot like the A-Star.

    you are too conservative and can not think beyond maruti

    hi Mr. Vin ......saying about maruti and hyundai is not conservative thing, bilash is right and i agree with him, yes we indians have a faith in a maruti product but it doesnt men=ans that we dont like GM cars, but the fact is fact, when a person get good comfort and performance in other cars like maruti and hyundai then why one will buy a beat, a fancy ride for nothing. its not about maruti, volks wagon polo and ford figo has been launched and they are getting good response in india now here is no maruti badge behind them, but what they have is a vfm product which is not less than a maruti product

    he is right about most of the things but not all..the car isnt that bad i have been driving it for a month. The engine is fine but yes it loses a bit of power when AC is on but its adjustable by higher RPM not a big loss..the speakers are terrible but the comfort is great...the only thing I am very annoyed about is the mileage...they said 18.6 i am getting 12-14...they are saying it will be better after 2-3k KMS but i feel they are lying
