Chrome door handles, electrically adjustable ORVMs and 14-inch alloy wheels are the 2018 Chevrolet Beat Notchback’s exterior highlights. Inside, the car has black fabric seats, power windows (front and rear), steering mounted audio controls, 7-inch Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and six speakers.
