Chevrolet Beat Activ Interiors

The Beat Activ will have sporty interiors and it is aimed at the youth, who look for a compact, fun to drive and flashy crossover with equally flashy interiors. The interior of this crossover is similar to the new Beat. It has a dual-tone beige and brown interior theme, and an interesting instrument cluster. The interior features trapezoidal air vents, color-coded accents, attractive and functional seat fabrics and a MyLink infotainment system with a seven-inch display.

Where the new Beat has improved is space. The new Beat is a lot more spacious at the rear. There is more than sufficient knee room for the rear passengers. This makes it comfortable.

Chevrolet Beat Activ Engine

The Beat Activ will come with the same engines as found in the Beat. The first one is a 1.2-litre S-TEC petrol engine that churns out 79bhp at 6200rpm and 108 Nm of torque at 4400rpm. The second engine is the 1.0-litre S-TEC diesel one that makes 57bhp at 4000rpm and a torque of  150Nm at 1750rpm. Both these engines are mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Chevrolet at the moment has no plans to get an automatic to India. Even if it does, it will be for the petrol engine and this will be a five-speed box.
