Value For Money

Buying my first car was quite a substantial investment for me as I could not look beyond a range of 4.5 lacs. I checked Spark, but I wasn’t happy with the looks. I also tried to see the hatchbacks from Maruti and took the test drives, but the interiors are not great. Finally, a friend of mine who owns Chevrolet Beat suggested that I check the car for fuel economy. Initially, I was more inclined to i10, but the cost was high as compared to features. After three months of buying Chevrolet Beat LS petrol, I can say it’s a great choice for my budget. The exterior of Beat is truly sporty. It doesn’t look like a general hatchback as the headlights and bumpers are quite sharp. I like the way the back portion of the car has been designed. On my checklist, I wanted to give more preference to good interiors. As I said, Maruti hatchbacks appeared to have poor interiors. Beat is much better in terms of features and interiors. The space of the car is sufficient for hatchback. Five of my office colleagues can sit happily in the car. Beat has good quality plastics, and the finish of the interiors is much better than other hatchbacks I mentioned. The seats are great with quality fabrics. Every time I drive Beat, I am impressed with engine response and steering. The car is great to drive on the city roads. I have just taken it once for a weekend adventure resort and found the response on highways to be great. But, I would like to warn new buyers about the engine noise. Although the car looks and feels sporty, the engine noise can be frustrating when you are driving at a high speed. Among other good features, shock absorption is great. Even in the big potholes, the car moves smoothly without giving me many jitters. I don’t know about the Chevrolet claims, but I am getting a modest fuel economy of 15kmpl. For me, I don’t have complaints with the mileage. The engine pickup and gearbox is good too. Initially, I had some issues with the third gear, but with time, I have gotten used to it. As I said, the space of the car is good, but the boot space may not be at par with other hatchbacks. But, taking two bags should not be a problem. I am yet to take it for a long trip, so cannot comment on the space usage. One small fact that I would like to share is the position of the driver’s seat. I think it’s a bit low for comfort driving. On the whole, Chevrolet Beat LS petrol is my perfect new car. I have a few issues with the gearbox and boot space, but given the fuel economy and engine response, I think I am happy with the investment. I am told that the fuel economy will increase on the highways, so I am waiting for my road trip in the summers.
