Chevrolet have unveiled the Beat Activ Concept in India at the 2016 Auto Expo. The Beat Activ is a soft-roader version of Chevrolet's Beat hatchback.
Engine And Gearbox Specifications
The Beat Activ is expected to use the same petrol and diesel powerplants found in the Beat hatch. The 1.2-litre petrol engine punches out 77bhp and 107Nm of torque, while the 1-litre diesel churns out 56bhp and 142.5Nm of torque. All this power is sent to the front wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The Beat Activ takes the Beat's funky styling up another notch by adding in skid plates at both the front and the rear to give itself a more rugged look. Also adding to the look is the black cladding on the front and rear bumpers.
The front headlamps feature integrate DRL (Daytime Running LEDs) while at the rear both taillamps are divided into two distinct portions which really look quite funky.
Pricing, Availability and Rivals
Not much is known about when the Beat Activ will launch in India or the prices, but if it does, it will join a list of soft-roading cars like the Toyota Etios Cross, VW Polo Cross and the Fiat Adventura.
