2017 Chevrolet Beat to Launch in India by mid-2017!

2

The new model 2017 Chevrolet Beat is almost ready for its launch. The new 2017 Chevrolet Beat carries many significant updates over the current model, which has by now started to lose out on sales charts. Chevrolet released the new generation Beat across many international markets earlier this year. However, unlike the international Beat (aka Spark), the 2017 Chevrolet Beat for India isn’t based on an all-new platform. Instead, the upcoming car is a highly updated version of the Beat we currently know of.

The Chevy Beat will continue to offer a Petrol and a Diesel engine variant. The Diesel motor will be the same 1.0-litre, 3-pot motor that powers the current car. However, the Petrol engine could be a new 1.0-litre unit that will be a downsized version of the 1.4-litre EcoTech motor. That said, don’t be surprised if GM India ends up retaining the current 1.2-litre Petrol engine. Our guess is that the new 2017 Chevrolet Beat range would have a starting price of Rs 4.1 Lakh in India.

2017 Chevrolet Beat India Launch Date

Launch Date May, 2017

The 2017 Beat is likely to go on sale in the first-half of 2017. We are expecting the launch date to fall in May, next year. Sales of the Beat have taken a huge hit in recent times. Hence, GM India could be looking to launch the refreshed Beat at the earliest.

2017 Chevrolet Beat India – Design Review

True, the new Chevrolet Beat 2017 isn’t an all-new model. However, it carries a sea of changes over the current model and looks more attractive. The silhouette remains largely unchanged but the new model till manages to look fairly more modern. The facelift sports the latest iteration of manufacturer’s two-part grille. The headlamp cluster is new goes on to enhance the appearance of the front fascia. Also, small changes have been made in the sheet metal – the car gets some new creases and surfaces. The rear will get a set of revised taillights and a new boot-lid.

Interior

We have always loved the Beat’s interior design, especially for bits like the superbike inspired speedo console. The 2017 Chevroleat Beat is likely to get a dual tone beige-black color theme for the dashboard and upholstery. The instrument cluster is now and so is the center console design. The 2017 Beat will offer a 7-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system. The features list will include-

  • Multi-function steering
  • Power Windows
  • Remote Central Locking
  • Touchscreen Infotainment
  • Split-folding rear seats
  • Alloy Wheels
  • Fog Lamps
  • Roof Rails
  • Rear Spoiler
  • Roof Antennae

2017 Chevrolet Beat India – Engine and Transmission

The new Chevrolet Beat 2017 will retain its 1.0-litre, three-cylinder Diesel engine. However, there are chances it will get a new 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder Petrol engine instead of the current 1.2-litre petrol motor. The Beat will continue to offer just one transmission option – 5-Speed Manual.
