chevrolet beat –

A new Chevrolet car can be seen on the Indian roads. This car is a small wonder manufactured by Chevrolet and named Chevrolet Beat. This mid-range hatchback vehicle is ready to compete against other incredible small cars such as the Ritz, the Swift or the Hyundai i10.

The Chevrolet Beat was designed by the Chevrolet’s Design Studio in Bupyeong, South Korea and benefits from additional inputs offered through the global network of General Motors designers. It was revealed at the Auto Expo which took place in New Delhi and uses the same platform as the Splash manufactured by Suzuki. This Chevrolet will be a great choice for the Indian customers interested in purchasing one of the many small cars available on the market. The Chevrolet Beat will be a fierce competitor in the small car niche, because of its aggressive and stylish look and because of its performance.

This mini Chevrolet is the most unique current hatchback model available on the Indian market. The unconventional design was sketched in Korea and the car was manufactured in India. At first sight, the Chevrolet Beat looks like a three-door car, because of the secret rear door handles integrated into the C-pillar of the mini car. One of the standard features is the integrated spoiler. In addition, a roof-mounted spoiler and an integrated and aggressive body kit transformed this mini car into an Ultra-racing concept car. Other stylish features which complete the Chevrolet Beat are the narrow headlamps, an elongated face, an angled grille and a jutting chin.

The interior of the Chevrolet Beat features a unique instrument cluster and a variety of compartments with enough space to store different items. Other features used on this Chevrolet are the integrated music system equipped with MP3 and USB port, the power steering, the power windows and the tilt steering.

Under the hood, the Chevrolet Beat is equipped with a 1.2 liter engine with Multi Point Fuel Injection Technology. This engine is able to deliver a maximum power of 82 horsepower. The Chevrolet Beat has a manual five speed gearbox, but I think that everybody hoped for an automatic gearbox which would be more efficient for a drive in the crowded traffic. You have the opportunity to choose even a diesel version of the Beat available with a three cylinder diesel engine. This diesel engine version has a displacement of 1.0 liters and produces a maximum power of 57 horsepower. The Chevrolet Beat features an automatic temperature controller placed inside the engine that uses a dome-type, long-skirt cylinder block which reduces the space between the intake valves.

The Chevrolet Beat is available in three different versions on the Indian market. The first version is the Beat 1.2 PS which is the base version available with AC and power steering. The second version is the Beat 1.2 LS and is available with AC, power windows, central locking, battery saver, digital clock, body colored bumpers, dual horn and an integrated spoiler. The third model is the Beat 1.2 LT which has all the features of the LS version and some additional components such as the LCD digital tachometer, the speedometer, the tubeless tires and the satin silver roof rails.

When it comes to the safety measures, the Chevrolet Beat is equipped with driver and front passenger air bags, an antilock braking system, seatbelts with load limiter and a 4-channel/4-sensor EBD-ABS system. The Beat has decent numbers when it comes to the fuel consumption: it consumes only 14kpl on a regular basis and even less on the highway in comparison with other mini cars. Definitely a must-have!

Yesterday I got invited by LG to a special premiere for bloggers of the new Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen movie. Though I wasn’t expecting it, the first movie was surprisingly entertaining so I had quite high expectations from this one too. And though the overall impression was that the movie could’ve been better (maybe because of the problems they faced), I really liked it. I mean we have cool cars (my heart started beating faster every time I saw the Camaro, it’s just an amazing car), we have Megan Fox, we have robots beating the s**t out of each other and we have some great special effects. What more can you ask from a movie. It’s not Oscar material, but it’s really, really entertaining.

Comparing it to the first one, the movie’s producers brought in several new funny robots, like the AutoboTwins Skids (Chevrolet Beat) and Mudflap (Chevrolet Trax) or Wheelie (a really funny toy car). Also, at the beginning of the movie there’s a Decepticon (for those of you who don’t know, these are the bad guys) which is an Audi R8 which is being cut in half by one of the Autobots. Like someone in the theatre said, it’s pretty ironic that the GMs always wins, but the company’s bankrupt.

Anyway, the conclusion is that if you feel like going to a movie that has some cool cars, great special effects and the smokin’ hot Megan Fox, you might really enjoy Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. If you haven’t seen it, you have the trailer after the jump. (more…)
