The story of the Chevrolet Trailblazer launch in India

The Chevrolet Trailblazer became a part of a love story… about a wife who wants to do something different in return for her husband’s niceness, something that would bring joy to his heart. We made a real life video on the wife making her husband relive his favorite childhood memory of receiving a Chevrolet toy car from his uncle, packed in a box. However, this time the Chevrolet car was the Trailblazer, delivered in a very large wooden Amazon box, which created such a touching nostalgic moment… the ringing of the doorbell, the excitement in the wife’s eyes as she Read more

Chevrolet Beat Diesel – Drive with InteliDrive!

Beat Diesel with InteliDriveThe Chevrolet Beat has been a winner all along, thanks to its fantastic styling, comfortable interiors and fuel efficiency. What makes the Beat even better is the fact that it comes loaded with technology that is not only aimed at improving its performance, but also the owner’s driving experience. The Chevrolet Beat Diesel has a set of unique features, clubbed as ‘InteliDrive Technology’, which make the Beat a truly unbeatable product!

Pro-Vario Assist Featherlite EPS

Pro-Vario Assist Electrical Featherlite Power Steering is designed to make maneuvering your Beat Diesel a breeze. While driving at a low speed or parking, maneuvering your car will require minimal effort. The assist levels on the steering vary at higher speeds for increased road feel and optimum vehicle control.

Advanced Insta-Torque Boost (AIB)

For faster torque build-up, the Beat Diesel comes equipped with Smart Turbocharger with vacuum activated wastegate. It gives the highest torque per liter in its segment and helps during overtaking maneuvers with quick engine RPM increase, hence providing torque on demand. This is aimed to make driving effortless with minimal downshifts while overtaking.

Intelligent Launch Support System (ILSS)

To ensure an effortless launch, especially on slopes, ILSS with Advanced Insta-Torque Boost (AIB) & Electronic Throttle has been fitted in the Beat. The Electronic Clutch Switch detects the pedal position to deliver optimum torque when starting from zero.

Smart Engine & Clutch Protection Mode (SECP)

Another feature that’s loaded on to the Beat Diesel is the Engine Protection Mode which manages engine torque and power output based on the input provided by coolant temperature and engine oil pressure sensors. High RPMs can be dangerous if they regularly exceed recommended limits, Smart Electronically Controlled Logic ensures the RPMs are maintained within the safe range in the Chevrolet Beat Diesel. The system ensures launch RPMs do not cross the 3000RPM mark. The Clutch Assembly Protection provides a smooth start to the engine and is specially designed for Indian driving conditions. It also helps improve mileage and minimizes the wear and tear on the clutch system, thus reducing maintenance costs as well.

Gas Charged Rebound Tuned Suspension (GRTS)

The Beat Diesel also features a GRT suspension which has been tuned to maximize your ride comfort and dynamic vehicle handling. The suspension has been tuned specifically for Indian roads. The wider tires give you better road grip while driving, turning and braking, ensuring safety and comfort on every drive.

And these aren’t the only features that can be found in the Chevrolet Beat. You can check out the rest here. So now tell us – Are you ready to turn on the Beat life?

The Exquisite BEAT

Beat-blog-post[27]The Chevrolet Beat for me has been a real winner with its out of the box design and sports car look and feel. But I had chosen to steer clear of the Petrol/ CNG versions as I already own a CNG vehicle which is very good to drive. But diesel was a different ballgame with the Chevrolet Beat’s Diesel engine.

I was looking for a diesel hatchback for a really long time. I almost gave into another car but felt I wanted something different and new. And then the Beat diesel came and gave it to me. I started following up about the launch of the car. I went to various showrooms and test drove the car some 4 times. I also test drove other cars, but ground clearance was one of the negative aspects of the other car I was considering, so I gave up.

I started the engine (1.0 TCDI) of Chevy Beat Diesel and was waiting for the noise to sink in. There wasn’t any! Drove it further, instantly felt the turbo and boy did I get hooked. Showed the car to my wife and she liked it too. Not that she had any choice but to like it!

Exterior smooth curve – I didn’t quite like the satin roof rails and the rear spoiler. The back door handles are inspiring. The car is tall from the front and, unmistakably Chevy. The tall grille screams Chevy with its big badge bulging from the center. The small boot door, the funny rear bumper bulges from the rear invite others to kiss it! But one can’t design a car on one’s own yet! So I planned for Chevy Beat Diesel basic model and wanted to modify it on my own. I bought it in the year 2011.

Interior (space and comfort) – low but adequate seats. The buckets are nicely shaped. The dash has good space; the interior is well lit with ample pockets and spaces for cans, bottles and newspaper. Tall dashboard, is not as appealing I feel.

I find the dark grey interiors much better than the beige option provided by some other cars. In my personal opinion, the interiors of the Beat are better than most of the other cars in its price range.

Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox all make for a zippy engine.Turbo kicks in around 2000rpm. Traveling in the city is a breeze. On the expressway, I sped to around 125 kmph and the car gave an FE (Fuel Efficiency) of approx. 22kmpl with 100% ac 90-10 highway-city usage.The EPS works amazingly well.Air-conditioning is adequate and very effective.

While driving in the city, I have never found the 3-cylinder diesel engine lacking anything. However, on one instance,on an unpaved inclined wet hilly road, I found it slightly underpowered. I think it’s being too demanding on this puny engine.

Ride Quality and Handling – The Beat just grips the road and creases out the bumps easily. The suspension is soft but solid at the same time. A down side is that I feel the steering does not centre out after negotiating a curve or turning.I am going to check with other users on the same.

Final words – Goodcar to own but,there may be users differing. But this one fits the bill perfectly and the Chevy promise says that I am to spend less than Rs 17,500/- in 3 years or 45,000 kms. What can I say? Happy with the buy!!!

Overall Build Quality: It’s quite a reliable car. Till date I have not faced any issues.

Incredible-yet-true Beat Stories

Chevrolet Beat DieselWords of praise have been pouring in ever since the launch of the Beat Diesel. And proud owners love to share stories of its great performance.

Our Amritsar Dealer has written in about Mr. Jugal Kishore’s experience with his Chevrolet Beat Diesel. Mr. Kishore, bought his Beat Diesel from Chevrolet’s Amritsar Dealer and was amazed to note that after the second service, his car was giving him an incredible 30.6 kms to the liter!

While we expect a good mileage, thanks to the SMARTECH diesel engine, this was a surprise even for us.The amazing 25.44 kmpl* has always been a talking point for the Beat Diesel. But, when a car starts giving almost 6 kmpl more than what was promised, everyone, including us, is definitely thrilled.

Mr. Jugal Kishore was all praises for the helpful staff and great experience at the S.V. Motors Workshop in Amritsar.

Another delighted Beat Diesel owner is Mr. G. Senthilkumar, from Hosur, Tamil Nadu. He was all praises for his recently bought Beat Diesel. He wrote about the excellent torque delivery of the car, especially during hill driving and over taking. Its high-performance engine gave him great confidence, even at speeds of 100 km/hr and above. Stories like these are what keep us going and make us feel proud of every car produced at Chevrolet.

At Chevrolet we strongly believe in delivering cars that are not only stylish and efficient, but complete value-for-money. That is what evokes pride that Chevrolet owners feel for their car. So, have you bought your Chevrolet yet?
