Chevrolet Beat Diesel was launched recently in India, but has been closely watched by the buyers and the media even much before its launch. The fuel hike has decreased the purchasing power of most of the Indian car buyers. Since diesel is cheaper, the diesel variant of the Chevrolet Beat is expected to be popular among customers. Moreover, the launch of the New Chevrolet Beat Diesel is expected to intensify the competition among the small car segments in India.

Experts are of the opinion that Chevrolet Beat Diesel will give tough competition to Ford Figo. The former has lower length and width, as well as wheel base in comparison to Ford Figo. However the height of the Beat Diesel is more than the Ford Figo. The beat is a compact, yet elegant looking car with curvy exterior body lines, whereas Figo is more of a family car with rugged body.
