2017 New Chevrolet Beat is most likely to bring GM the much awaited volume once again like the same model did 7 years ago
Chevrolet Beat came in 2010 and helped GM set up some base in the market. It helped it get a minute amount of market share in the B+ segment hatchback. The car had a funky design language, a great value for money price tag along with a very refined and efficient petrol motor. Diesel came in the year 2013 and boosted the sales as much as it could for GM. The sales still continue to be best in the GM stable till date.

We have more details on the car as well. The Beat has been spied once again somewhere in Delhi. Our reader sends us these pictures of the car running around the streets. The hatchback continues testing but this time it has been revealed completely.
