Great pics, from the banners and all seems its launch ready. It looks big and has huge fog lamps, i think launch might be in mid december itself.

The new stippled gold big chevy bowtie is looking good on this one along with Cruze.

 

Cyrus, any idea on launch date?

And are these pics taken at some showroom or at ARAI?

The interiors looks quite good with integrated audio and i guess it has A.C.C., but want to know hows the quality.

The rear lights with chrome surrounding doesnt looks that good.

 

@Cyrus, seems that you know much about this car and its launch and have loads of pics, hope you share those details here ASAP.

Great pictures 18.6 Kmpl is really good figure, very good looking small

car, and its not Aveo u-va's engine, i think a new engine from

Chevrolet to get excise duty benefits and to meet BS4, if priced

aggressively it will surely affect Maruti Ritz and Hyundai i10.

The Beat will be launched on the 4th of January!

I'll be the first to check it out in the showrooms then smiley1.gif

Looks like a good package except for the tail lamps (too tacky) -- they look aftermarket.

In India, the pricing decides the winner or the loser.  Jazz pricing has become a management guide for the manufacturers to learn a lesson or two in a price-sensitive great Indian automobile market.  I do hope, GM would tread this sensitive and trecherous pricing path cautiously and come out clean with flying colours.J.Ravi2009-12-03 09:33:10

@DD I think they never thought of a rear quater glass when they designed it .

 

I never though that new spark will be available in such bright colours , looks great any more specs , This looks more spacious than the Estilo though . What will happen to the current Spark ,will it be rebadged spark classic?  In the above pic look at the car outside the window it really feels suffocating to even think of sitting in the rear but this car is great overall and it is the new design which will be accepted quiet easily.

The car looks good.But it will find difficult to compete with Ford Figo.Figo will be priced similar to Beat though it will be a much bigger sized hatch with excellent driving experience & overall space.According to me Figo will be the biggest thing to happen in Indian Motoring next year.

 

However,all the best to BEAT.
