Default Re: Chevrolet gives Beat updates for 2016

It will continue to run the same 57.1PS/142.5Nm, 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbo-diesel and the 77.9PS/106.5Nm, 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol. Both these options will get a 5-speed manual

Now this is confusing. If it is just a cosmetic face-lift, why is the car being tested so much ?

Slightly off topic, but the same question had come to everyone's mind when the new Scorpio & Safari were being tested and as it turned out that the chassis were new in both cars.
I feel definitely there has to be some mechanical change to warrant so much testing
