    Hello Fas,

    Was eagerly waiting for this. Wanted your opinion. How does it fare on highways? Long drives? I see it’s a 3 pot cylinder. Would that take a toll on highway/long drives?


    • fas

      Anand, the Beat is good for the city. Not so good for the highway. Engine is suited for city driving. Lacks top end punch.

    • Anand

      Thank you for the confirmation Fas! The interest is back to Punto again! :)

  • Ed

    DISAPPOINTING SPECS!!! ALL the competition are faster… However if one is going for the looks and cost of ownership it’s a fab deal. However space is a crunch :( Well GM could have bettered it…

  • Harish Jackson

    Oh my god! It’s very disappointing for me according to the engine, The engine power is very poor, It can’t satisfy us on the highways and long journeys



  • Akhil

    A very gud package to serve city users ! priced well aggressively ! Its gonna ‘beat’ many out der ! ;) :)
