Chevrolet Beat Review

Summary

The Chevrolet Beat, launched in 2009, received its first facelift in 2014 with minor exterior and interior changes. The Beat is one of the most popular Chevrolet cars in India, which is known as the Spark in international markets. The new model looks similar to its predecessor, though, it gets dual port chrome grille, modified bumpers, new headlamps, fog lamps with chrome lined contrasting black surround and few more changes. The interior, too, doesn’t receive any significant updates, except for dashboard with silver inserts, steering mounted audio controls and manually adjustable air conditioning. There is no mechanical update as well. The hatchback is powered with the same 79.3bhp, 1.2-litre petrol and 57.6bhp, 1.0-litre diesel engines, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The diesel engine is quite peppy at low revs. It’s one of the easiest-to-drive and most fuel efficient Chevrolet cars in India.

Further to this, read Chevrolet Beat Road Test details by our expert.

Exterior

Though the hatchback received minimal exterior updates in 2014, it looks sportier and more outgoing than its predecessor. At the front end, it features dual port chrome grille, modified bumpers, new headlamps and fog lamps with chrome lined contrasting black surround. However, the side profile remains unchanged. The rear profile gets new dual-tone rear bumper with black faux diffuser integrating reflectors and revised tail lamps with red inserts.

Interior

The interior of the hatchback looks similar to the old model. It gets dashboard with silver inserts, steering mounted audio controls and manually adjustable air conditioning, while rest of the interior design and equipment remain unchanged. Just like most Chevrolet car models, the hatchback comes equipped with several comfort-enhancing features such as audio system with Aux-in, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, multiple storage compartments etc.

Engine and Transmission

No mechanical changes have been made to the hatchback. It is available with the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.0-litre diesel engine options. The 1.2-litre, 1199cc, 16V SMARTECH petrol engine delivers a maximum power of 79.3bhp at 6200rpm with 108Nm of torque at 4400rpm. The diesel trims are propelled by a 1.0-litre, 936cc, 12V SMARTECH diesel engine, which is good for 57.6bhp and 150Nm. Both the engines are linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Performance and Handling

Despite having small size engines, the hatch delivers punchy performance. It’s one of the most fun-to-drive city Ford car models in India. Compact dimensions and short turning radius make it a perfect urban car. Handling is predictable, and the ride quality is good. It accelerates 0-100kmph in 15.5 seconds with a top speed of 145kmph.

Braking System

The front disc brakes and rear drum brakes are well calibrated. The effective ABS (anti-lock braking system) and a good pedal bite further enhance its braking capabilities.  

Mileage

The 936 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 23 kmpl in city and 25 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 17 kmpl on urban roads and 19 kmpl on freeways, respectively.

Safety Features

The hatchback is equipped with several passive and active safety features such as day & night inside rear view mirror, front fog lamp, central locking, driver seat belt reminder and height adjust front headrest. While dual airbags, ABS (anti-lock braking system) and front seat belt load limiter are available only on top-end model.

Verdict

The Beat facelift is a good value for money car. However, it received minimal exterior and interior updates. It’s one of the most frugal and fun-to-drive Chevrolet cars in India.

Competition

Ford Figo Vs Chevrolet Beat

Both the cars look stylish and sporty. Chevrolet’s Beat offers a well-equipped interior, and frugal and peppy engines. The Ford Figo, on the other hand, is more spacious and comfortable than its rival. In terms of handling and drivability, too, the Figo scores higher than the Chevrolet’s hatchback.

Pros

  • Sporty styling

  • Engine performance

  • Fuel economy

  • Handling

Cons

  • Limited boot space

Awards

  • Compact car of the Year - 2013 - Bloomberg TV Autocar Awards

  • Hatchback of the Year - 2013 - Car India & Bike India Awards
