The auspicious season of Diwali is just around the corner and car makers will be aiming at new customers and in order to lure buyers they are planning something special. Chevrolet, part of General Motors is planning a couple of things for its customers including two major launches of entirely new models and a facelift model. While the new models are Chevrolet Sail U-VA hatchback and Sail sedan, the facelift we are talking about is of 2012 Chevrolet Beat.
Beat is one of the best selling cars and the facelift model of the same was caught with partial camouflage on the streets on Chennai, lately. Chevrolet is gradually revising its complete line-up, starting with the Optra Magnum, Aveo and Aveo U-VA, the respective productions of which will be stopped by September 2012. Recently the company launched the new Chevrolet Captiva and upgraded Chevrolet Cruze which are again a part of the revision exercise.
Chevrolet Tavera, General Motors’ only MPV in the market was also revamped and the new model was introduced at the 2012 Auto Expo. Talking about the 2012 Chevrolet Beat facelift now, as mentioned above the car was spotted in Chennai and a number of noticeable changes were there which are as follows:
- A new front bumper
- A larger grille
- Top end variant expected to get 15 inch alloy wheels
- Expected high quality updates for the interiors
All these features are similar to what we saw in the new Chevrolet Spark (Beat is known as Spark in International markets) showcased at the New York International Auto Show.
The main contenders in the same segment, Ford Figo and Maruti Ritz are also undergoing tests and will definitely come with bodily revisions. So beside GM, Maruti Suzuki and Ford is also working on their respective facelift models and all of them will go head to head against each other at this Diwali.
