The India-spec Beat hatchback has been revealed for the first time in an image from Chevrolet.
Only the front and the sides of the new Beat are visible in the image, but they do reveal an evolutionary rather than revolutionary design change.
The front features the customary split grille which has become a Chevrolet staple in the past few year. The smaller section of the grille features a single chrome slat with the Chevrolet Badge taking centre-stage.
The headlamps look more curvier compared to the sharp angular headlamps seen on the current generation of the Beat. Underneath the headlamps sit the fog lamps in their own plastic clad enclosures.
The sides of the new Beat feature a smoothed out look though the wheel arches still look quite pumped up. The rear door handle remains hidden on the window of the new Beat
The new Beat is expected to carry forward the petrol and diesel engines found on the current Beat when it hits Indian roads.
The Beat will be one of five cars that General Motors will launch in India in the next 48 months that will bear the Chevrolet badge. Chevrolet has cancelled the Spin MPV as it looks to focus more on SUVs and hatchbacks as a response to customer feedback.
Other than the new Beat, Chevrolet is expected to launch the all new Beat Active and the Beat Essentia compact sedan(Both of which are based on the Beat.) along with the all-new Cruze sedan and the facelifted Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV.
