Next-gen Chevrolet Beat India launch in early-2017


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Heavily re-worked version of the current model.

Overdrive reports that the next generation Chevrolet Beat will launch in early-2017. This contradicts reports of its launch taking place later this year.

India-spec Next-gen Chevrolet Beat revealed
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.
