This photo is Taken in Seoul-Korea last week. This is replacement of UV-A by GM-Daewoo in Korea and named Skids.

Flamboyant and somewhat garish I must say. The overall design is quiet different though, the GM dealers here say its going to be a killer in terms of its aggressive pricing and overall VFM.

I haven't spotted this car on test here in Pune, though am going to keep my lens ready over the weekend. Will try and spot if these are being tested over the expressway or around town.

Skids was the name of the autobot based on Chevy Beat in the movie transformers.

Is a good strategy to name it that way but I doubt it.

Is it just me or someone else also who thinks the headlights are just an extension of i10 headlights?
Scoop pics suggest another 3-4 months launch?

To me it looks good, especially the interiors. Interiors looks dull.
Rear door handle is placed near to the rear window quarter glass. Check out

Contradicting statement bro

To me it looks like copy cat design from many cars like i10, Vista etc...

I bet the final interiors will be brighter. It looks pretty acceptable (in fact, I quite like its stance and looks) inside and out so its down to its engine and mechanicals to make the real difference.

This looks like the base version (black ORVMS, grey dash & door handles).. but still manages to look expensive, atleast from the outside.

Also, the tail lamps are too aftermarket chinese types! And when you've perfect angular lines going on on the rest of the car, then why circular tail lamps.

Now thats some interior! The pre-production Beat has a very stripped down interior.Hopefully GN will have a top end version with all the bells and whistles.Super cool blue backlit.

Actually, how hard can it be to give a nice interior design with cool lights? I'm sure its not as expensive as we think.
