Compare Chevrolet Beat with other Models
Small cars in India have been getting good response from the new small car buyers as the selling point of these cars is good value for money with low running cost. With petrol prices in India touching new heights every few months, the buyer’s preference has shifted more towards the entry level cars like the Chevrolet Beat, Toyota Etios Liva and Ford Figo etc.
Toyota Etios Liva Vs Chevrolet Beat: The design of the two cars is extremely different. While the Liva is a more contemporary wide and low design with larger wheelbase, the Beat is more of a tall boy design with shorter wheel base, less width and more height compared to Liva. On ride and handling front, we consider both these cars to be equally good.
Chevrolet Beat Diesel Vs Ford Figo Diesel: Beat is a cute looking car with very expressive body lines and curves whereas the Figo is a rugged looking car. The Beat is very sporty roof rails which are absent on the Figo. The overall fit and finish and quality wise, the Beat takes the lead.
Chevrolet Beat Diesel Vs Maruti Suzuki Ritz Diesel: The Beat certainly has a unique road presence and attraction that a buyer seeks, the Ritz isn’t bad though. However the Ritz makes up with a better space compared to the Beat.
