In a country where people break coconuts, and pray to god when they buy and bring a new car home, and while they almost worship their car, it is quite expected, that those people want their car right; as we say; from head to toe.

In recent times small passenger vehicles or rather say compact hatchbacks has done quite well in the great Indian automotive race, as people of this country looks for a car which will serve their purpose for daily commuting, highway drives at occasional weekends, as well as they expect this car to give an extensive mileage, as many people mockingly say, the first thing an Indian buyer asks in the showroom, “How much does it give (Mileage)?” Apart from that, the present generation of automobile customers’ looks for another thing, which is automatic transmission, as driving through congested Indian roads needs a person quite some skills and experience to drive properly with constantly shifting gears.

In this segment Maruti Suzuki Celerio has done quite well in recent times, as it came with a technology Automated Manual Transmission (AMT), which is a good alternative of conventional automatic transmission system. A few months back Maruti Maruti Suzuki launched the diesel version of Celerio, although it came with manual gear box, but still this diesel variant managed to be popular, as the name Celerio was already in the mind of people at large, and a diesel powered car is always hot favourite for common Indian people, as the fuel is cheaper than petrol and thus the fuel economy saves quite a few extra bucks.

The prime competitor for Celerio diesel is basically one and only Chevrolet Beat diesels, as these are two small diesel hatches in Indian market with a compact budget. And Celerio is practically the most loved hatchback of the country.

Here we tried to bring our readers a quick look at the spec sheet based comparison review between these two small diesel powered hatchbacks.

We were all little disappointed with Chevrolet for not launching the Beat hatchback yet but definitely Chevrolet has some big plans. As the compact sedan segment is popularly growing in our market and like many other auto manufacturer, Chevrolet too has plans to launch a new compact sedan in this segment to take on the other competitions.

Their new notchback will be based on their upcoming Beat hatchback, and just every other car of its segment this too will be a sub-4 metre offering and thus will reap the excise benefits, which will also help them to price it aggressively. Just like the hatchback, the notchback too will be based on the M300 platform.

As far as its styling is concerned, just like any other compact sedan the Beat sedan too will take most of its styling inspiration from the soon to be launched new generation Beat hatchback. Almost every component of the notchback will be shared with the Beat hatchback including the drivetrain. You can expect the soon to be launched Beat hatchback will be launched in the Indian market with the 1.0-litre, three cylinder petrol unit which has been tuned for better fuel efficiency. There might also be a fair chance of an automatic transmission paired with the new engines as well because more and more people are getting inclined towards an automatic transmission nowadays.

Expect the new Chevrolet Beat compact sedan to be launched in the Indian market in 2017, and it will compete with the likes of the soon to be launched Ford Figo Aspre, Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, and Hyundai Xcent .
