Re: Chevrolet Beat Detailed Road Test Report

Hi, I am driving a Beat everyday & I feel in reverse gear the vehicle tends to switch off very easily (I mean when you slowly release clutch pedal). I see the tachometer @ 3 dots instead of 4, I guess 3means 600rpm & 4 means 800rpm.

Beat guys help me out please, if it is a idling issue I can tighten the adjuster (plastic one) near firewall in the engine bay.

Here is a picture of the adjuster

Reviews for beat?

I did a test drive for Chevrolet Beat Petrol today, and I could not find it comfortable to drive. It has less space inside, and the window panes are very small too.

How is this car in comparison to Santro/Swift? (the cars I drove till now)

If you have the budget, go for Swift. Petrol if you are a low mileage guy or else diesel (atleast 10000kms/ year). Compared to Beat, Swift is more spacious. If you want to widen your options, then check out Indica Vista 90 petrol, Ritz, I20.

My brother in law has a beat diesel. Maintenance, well looks to be on the lower side. Engine (though derived for Fiat multijet unit) sounds like an old Ikon 1.8D. And rattles can be heard upto a km away.

No doubt Chevrolet Beat is a good car but i think it's priced a bit steep now with its top-end LTZ Diesel variant priced at ₹6.57 lacs, ex-showroom, Delhi which translates to On road price of ₹7.30 lacs+.
I think its a bit too much for car of such small engine displacement & its segment.
Somehow, it reduces the VFM quotient, previously which it was known for.
Base Diesel variant however begins from ₹5.26 lacs.
