When Chevrolet first launched the hatch Beat in the Indian market it attracted huge attention from the people because back then it was a wild and aggressive looking small hatch. Its overall size, shape and stature were absolutely perfect for our urban roads.

The Beat had huge headlamps and funky styling on its exterior while inside it received sporty touch which definitely attracted the young generation and the first time car buyers. But somehow Chevrolet Beat’s glory in the Indian market was short lived and its rivals started launching their own products which came with a more practical and spacious interior, fuel efficient engine and also was priced quite aggressively at the same time.

Although GM has made couple of minor changes to the hatches exterior earlier but somehow it failed to revive its position in the Indian market, recently Chevy launched a facelift version of the Beat in the Indian market at the 2014 Auto Expo which was held in Delhi. This facelift Beat too received minor cosmetic upgrades both on its exterior and interior, however open the front hood and inside it you will find the same 1.0 Liter XSDE diesel engine while the petrol version is powered by the S-TEC II powertrain, but does these powertrains now deliver more power and torque amount? You will definitely get all your answers once you go through this entire review of the facelift 2014 Chevrolet Beat.
