After releasing teasers of the new Chevrolet Spark (Beat for India), General Motors has finally unveiled the car at the New York Auto Show 2015.
The new Chevrolet Beat sits on a slightly longer wheelbase and loses out on that youthful design seen in the previous car.
General Motors says that the updated Beat sits 40mm lower than the outgoing model and this has resulted in an even lower drag coefficient.
The new Beat though doesn't look as radical as before and features a more mature design language. The dual port grille gets a chrome outline and is flanked by boomerang-shaped headlamps.
The body shell is also claimed to be all-new and has been strengthened. The company says that it has retained the 'fun to drive' character that the Beat was always known for.
The fog lamp enclosures too have a chrome outline. Chevy has changed the alloy wheel design as well. The side profile, like the front has been altered as well. Changes at the rear include redesigned lamps and bumpers.
GM says that the new Beat gets an advanced dot matrix LCD instrument cluster and a 7-inch touchscreen for infotainment. Space in the cabin has also been increased.
New safety features include forward collision alert, lane departure warning and side blind spot alert. This is apart from the 10 airbags which come as standard. (Text: Overdrive)
