The unconventional styling of Chevrolet Beat may not be suited to everyone’s taste but the car is still admired and finds buyers for its compliant ride quality, a decent fuel economy and Chevrolet’s 3 year service warranty.
Let’s check out the features of top end variant - Beat 1.2 LT – in the petrol fuel category:
Along with the basic design components of the mid segment variant, Chevrolet Beat 1.2 LT sports few special features for that extra touch of refinement. The door handles and ORVMs have matching body colour and there are trendy satin silver rails on the roof. This variant of the hatch is also equipped with a B pillar styling strip that lends more appeal to the profile. Unlike the black rear spoiler in the other two models, Beat 1.2 LT has one in body colour.
Being a top-end trim in the petrol line-up, Beat 1.2 LT has been treated well with a number of extra features for aesthetics and functionality in the cabin. There is a high gloss silver finish on the instrument panel & doors, as also a silver finish on front door map pocket. Chevrolet also provides an integrated music system with radio, CD player and AUX-in + USB sockets. There are 4 speakers for complete music effect. As in other two versions of the hatch, the instrument panel has an icy blue illumination that complements the funky design theme of Chevrolet Beat quite well.
While a powerful manual air-conditioner is there in the other two variants too, the top end model of Beat comes with climate control feature for more comfort in the tropical climate of India. The steering is rake adjustable in here and all four windows are powered. You also get wash, wipe and defogger system for the rear glass. All windows are powered and the steering is rake adjustable. Along with the elementary comfort features common for all variants, these extra add-ons in Beat 1.2 LT make it a plusher and more comfy hatch.
A front fog lamp is an added safety feature that you get with this model. Standard aspects such as door ajar warning, low fuel warning, driver seat belt reminder, central locking facility day/night rear view mirror are same as that in the Beat 1.2 LS.
Chevrolet has loaded top end segment Beat well to create an attractive package for Rs. 4.63 lakhs (ex showroom price Delhi). There are more buyers for diesel Beat in India but with low maintenance costs and good ride quality, this one is also a fairly good option.
