GJ registration points to a Chevrolet. Could it be the facelifted U-VA ?

It seems to be a Chevrolet Beat, see this month's Overdrive for more details on it.
Its not at all a Jazz !!

100% and Chevy. Only GM has a plant in Gujarat. Of course Tata's will produce the Nano there, but this car is definitely not a Nano. Has to be the Beat or New UVA.

Yeah, This is the beat for sure!
I recognized it just after I saw it.
Great spotting, I think this is only the GM's new small car which will not be powered by a diesel engine and would be placed above spark, Somewhere around 4lac mark.

I had spotted this too, but could not take any pics of the same. But with GJ plates, i feel its sure not Toyota, must be the Chevy.

Just have a look at this, I've chopped both images and check their rear view, Very very similar, Its the beat for sure!!
And the interesting part is that the spied beat's(indian) rear door handle will be placed just side of the window which will give it a 2door car look!

Mods: Please Merge this post with my previous one.Thanks.

@mods, the beat has its own discussion thread. you may want to merge these 2.

uff, one look at the first pic and I thought its a Yaris, but as confirmed by fellow BHPians its GM.

GM India seems on a roll on launching new products.
