The Chevrolet Beat first arrived at the New York International Auto Show in 2007. The car was designed at the GM’s South Korean studio and its running prototype is manufactured in India. Its engine displacement is compact, small and eco-friendly. And, apart from the petrol versions, there is a LPG version too these days.

The car gives 18.6 kmpl on highways and for cities the mileage is 15kmpl. The model is powered with a sixteen valve DOHC (Double Over Head Camshaft) which churns out great power and also a torque of around 79bhp at around 6200 rpm, 108nm at around 4400 mm. It’s a small car and is a good performer if you do not cross 60kmph.

Finally the car is armed with special features such as an automatic temperature regulator and rear spoiler which are integrated to deliver a balanced drive and super fuel efficiency. The traditional rear and front suspension offers a comfortable ride and smooth handling.
