Chevrolet Beat Picture

We all know how ambitious GM is. They recently said they intent to launch a small car next year which would compete with the i10. Well the car is the Chevrolet Beat. They decided on the beat to be the next small car to go into production by having a world wide vote on The Beat concept looks very good, however when cars go from concept to production, they change alot, case in point is the A-Star.The above image is an artists impression of how the beat would look. It has been caught testing and we are pretty sure that the production version and the artists impression won’t have much difference in between them. You can see there is a Daewoo batch on this car and GM usually makes its small cars and India bound cars with GMDAT (General Motors Daewoo Auto Technologies) The car looks good and GM plan to price it between 4-5 lacs. It will use the second generation S Tec 1.2 liter engine which will feature DOHC, 16V and Varaible Intake Geometry. Only time will tell whether GM can beat (no punt intended) Hyundai by catching the i.


Engine – 1.2L DOHC 16V

Power – 75bhp (estimated)

Fuel Type – Petrol (Multijet Diesel a possibility)

Price – 4-5 lacs
