Saturday 23 July 2011, 17:46 PM by Vikas Yogi

As know, Chevrolet Beat is one of the popular hatchbacks of the country. America’s leading automaker General Motors had till now launched only the petrol and LPG variants of Beat in India so far, and the customers had been expecting Chevrolet Beat diesel variants for long time. Finally, the company has planned to launch diesel Chevrolet Beat on 2011 July 25th.

As far as 2011 Chevrolet Beat diesel exterior is concerned, the car will have more or less similar looks as its petrol versions though it weighs a bit more than the SmartTech petrol Beat. Of course, on rear side the diesel Beat will come with TCDI badge. As of now, there are no changes expected in diesel Chevrolet Beat 2011 interiors but there may be slight changes which we can know after its launch.

Coming to the engine part, 2011 Chevrolet Beat diesel will come with 1.3 liter multijet diesel engine with CRDI motor. In order to decrease the volume of the engine, GM has cut off one cylinder in diesel Beat, which in turn not only reduces the weight of the car but it also increases the Beat diesel’s mileage. Apart from that, the car also comes with smooth shifting five speed manual gearbox transmission option and it has the capacity to produce peak power of 58 bhp and maximum torque of 150 nm

It is expected that the Beat diesel will be one of the most fuel efficient hatchbacks of its segment. According to ARIA, the 2011 diesel Chevrolet Beat will give a mileage of 24 km per liter but practically we can expect that the car will give at least 20 km per liter for sure.

Chevrolet Beat diesel safety features are also remarkable as the car is loaded with major safety features like airbags and anti-breaking system (ABS). The Chevrolet Beat diesel’s final price has not yet been announced but dealers have started booking orders by making the customers to deposit Rs 10,000 per order.
