Caviar Black Chevrolet Beat

Our 2 day old chevy.

We almost didn't buy this beauty coz we thought it was a 3 door.. and we were looking for a family car.. then a few weeks back we spotted a chevy showroom near our house, and drove by to see if the Beat was on the floor.. it was, so i went in to check it out. Noticing the two back seats, i asked the sales guy- "how do you get in the back seats?".. and lo and behold he opened the back doors with the magically disguised door handles(seamlessly integrated into the window frame).. 😆

we didn't like any of the colours they had it in, so we just ordered the "caviar black".

UPDATE: heres the review of the car now that i've had it for a while

mine is a petrol vehicle so heres my review on that(for diesel or more detailed reviews click here http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Chevrolet+beat+review):

Pros: great for city driving(i drive to work everyday) and long distance(have driven from bangalore to goa with 4ppl and 1 big dog in the car). Mileage with ac is good(16 in city with ac, 19-20 on highway with ac) when used with Automatic Climate control.. otherwise same as any other ac car.

Chevrolet engine is sturdy and have had no mechanical problems in the last 2+ years

Cons: not for hills. during a recent trip to ooty, i discovered that the pickup is dreadful on steep hills. was ok once we were in ooty.. traveling to coonoor was fine.. coming back was great as well.. just the climb up to ooty was crap.

in fact for hills i can only recommend maruti vehicles

Chevrolet's service is nothing great.. infact they are quite un-helpful. after my free services were done, i just went back to my local general mechanic.. that guy is super polite, friendly and drops me home when i drop off the car and brings the car back to my place for no extra charge.

    i agree, we recently took a road trip from Bangalore to Goa(558 km), myself, my dad, mom, sister and dog(Labrador x Doberman) was quite ok.

    my opinion is in the blog post 🙂 my advice to you is to look at the competing vehicles from honda, hyundai and nissan .. just to be sure. personally i have no regrets(things like pickup etc are same in all cars in this segment) in the last 4years it has served me quite well.
