Instead of a full black interior like the outgoing model, the new Beat adopts a dual tone beige and black interior with fabric beige seats, a new center console design with larger HVAC vents and silver trim, chrome bezel for the round HVAC vents and a new instrument cluster with chrome accents. The highlight is a new 7-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system, which could be exclusive to the range-topping grade.

The exterior is heavily inspired by the the international-spec Chevrolet Spark. The new Beat features an updated Chevy 2-part grille flanked by bulbous headlamps, chrome embellishers on the grille and headlamps, roof rails, round foglamps on either side of the lower bumper, new taillamps and a re-positioned registration plate area.
