This one is based on a new platform and a new generation. The New Chevrolet Beat 2017 gets a new design that looks contemporary. The new Beat’s design is an evolution of the existing tall boy. This hatchback continues to have a similar foot print, however it has sharper styling.
The slimmer new front grill looks mean and the headlamps are well chiselled. The lower black honeycomb mesh grille form an hexagonal shape. The door pillars are blacked out and new mirrors are larger than before. The New Beat 2017 will be based on the same platform for India but with a new design and more features. The major change is at the front.From the side the Beat looks identical to the older version. There are new taillamps that it gets as as well.

The Beat on the inside continues with its funky theme. This new hatchback has a simple interior layout with a large screen on the centre console underneath the AC vents. The steering wheel design is the same three-spoke one, with the instrument cluster that moves up and down with the steering wheel. There are some storage spaces on the dashboard and even underneath the centre console. The door pockets also seem to be large in size and the Beat has good stowage space.
The front row seats are large and have good enough comfort, while the second row seats get an additional recline when compared to the outgoing Beat. This way, the knee room for tall passengers at the rear is just fine. The boot of the Beat Activ is just fine. It isn’t the largest, but it is good enough for a hatchback of this size.

GM will continue to offer the New Chevrolet Beat 2017 with the same 1.2-litre petrol engine and the diesel shall be the 1.0-litre. Both these engines have been carried forward from the old Beat. The new Beat is likely to have better performance as the new chassis is lighter and has better rigidity too. With regards to the transmission, there won’t a change either. The same 5-speed manual will continue on the new Chevrolet Beat.
