The Chevy Beat wears a bold face with the large Chevy split grille, rakish headlamps that extend nearly to the pillar. The styling gets distinct with the heavy front and just like the Cruze comes with character and front & side profiles are quite radical for the segment. The lack of traditionally placed door handles make a style statement and with the flowy roof line and steep window lines are exceptional. The rear end has a Santo like look and with the chrome round light arrangement is trendy. The Chevrolet Beat is powered by a 1.2L 4 cylinder petrol engine which enables it to derive the excise benefits. This 1199cc 16v DOHC powerplant is capable of 79 BHP (@ 6,200 rpm) and 108 NM of torque (@ 4,400 rpm). The 1.2 will go on to a 6,300 rpm limit, though the engine becomes buzzy. Chevy has tuned the Beat for fuel efficiency, right down to the thinner tyres and the ARAI fuel efficiency number is 18.6kmpl. The Beat is a good city hatch and nippy to drive in urban confines. The clutch is light and has a short pedal range translating into excellent for city.
