    the price tag will determine a lot of things, wether it will 'beat' the indica?? on its home turf, the indica is much bigger but this i bet is more refined, the rest i think will reflect in the bookings

    Although pricing of the Beat, which will make or break Chevrolet’s game, is yet to be announced, the fact that the company is already touting it as the cheapest diesel hatchback sold in India hints at a competitive pricing. Nevertheless we will have to wait until Chevrolet announces prices to see how cheap the car really will be.
    As for the car itself, it’s a good package with its offer of a trendy and youthful image, decent driveability and high fuel efficiency. To further sweeten the deal, Chevy has made it known that the car will get the same 3 years/1,00,000km warranty that is currently applicable on the petrol Beat, which will further endear the diesel version of the Beat to prospective buyers.

    nah nah man that car is nice i really like indica :p not that i get commission hahha.
    am not a big fan of diesel engine cars from american company who doesnt really care abt petrol. plus this is going to be underpowered game 900 CC diesel engine compared to 1300+ diesel in indica.

    @rahul,

    i am confident this engine won't be underpowered, its powered by the same variant of the DDiS diesel multijet Fiat that is doing duty in about seven or eight models currently in the market...and if i am not mistaken, this one is probably turbocharged, the only thing i am worried about is the three cylinder arrangment, that could translate into some engine vibrations as a four cylinder arrangement is harmonically perfect
