The new Beat will be one of Chevrolet’s most important products for its planned resurgence next year.

The exterior draws styling cues from the international Chevrolet Spark, featuring a new 2-part grille flanked by large headlamps, plenty of chrome details, and round foglamps on either side of the lower bumper. The rear-end could get redesigned taillamps with LED inserts and repositioned number plate area.

Inside, there is a dual-tone dashboard housing a 7-inch MyLink infotainment system and a revised bike-inspired instrument cluster. Improvements to the build quality as well as materials are expected in the new Beat.
