Default Hi from Sunil

Hello fellow Bhpians

I am sunil , an Auto engineer by profession and auto by passion. I work with GM in Blore .(so catch me if i m found praising Chevrolet cars).

I hail from Kerala..Kochi..one of the most beautiful places i ve ever lived


Let me admit that from my childhood i was not interested in auto stuffs...became passionate once I came into this profession

I own a Chevy spark(in blore) & Chevy Beat(just bought) at kochi

I look forward to a fruitful discussions with my fellow bhpians

Regards
Sunil

Hello Sunil and Welcome to Team BHP.

Kerela is certainly one of the beautiful places around and no wonder they call it Gods Own Country. Tell us more about your role in GM and how do you compare the Spark with the Beat since you own both of them. Looking forward to your posts.

Take time to go through the Announcements to acquaint yourself with the forum etiquettes.

Hey Sunil, welcome to the forum. Hmm, 2 Chevrolet cars in a garage? What's next, maybe a Cruze? BTW, I guess some guy from GM itself gave an intro sometime back here. So lookout for a car with TBHP stickers at your workplace

EDIT : Here is his intro : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/introd...nikhil-gm.html (Hi! Im Nikhil from GM)

Thanks dippy, I am onto alternate fuel(lpg/CNG) engine development.
Below are some of my observattions regarding difference between spark and beat in a "user" point of view

PERFORMANCE
Spark - upshifting can be done at lower speeds (low end torque looks to be good. I can drive in 5th Gear at 25kmph)
Beat - I felt that city drive needs down shifting, might be because of the gear ratios. But at higher speeds Beat is very stable and stable

In short I enjoy driving spark in City and Beat in Highway

INTERIOR
Plastic trims are of far better quality in beat.(probably the best in class) spark has a plasticy feel.
seating is very comfortable in beat(although its little low). A seating height adjustument provision would have been a good add in Beat.
Dash looks awesome in beat(LT), spark is noway near..
Steering position in spark is good, but doesnt favour 6 ft'rs. Beat has a tiltable steering

EXTERIOR STYLING
No need for any statements, Beat is awesome.

FEATURES
Beat is far better comparing spark
1) Tiltable steering
2) Climate control A/C ( I have really enjoyed this one..)
3) Integrated stereo


I will keep you posted with more information

Hi Torqueman,

Welcome to the site. Like yourself, I am also a Newbie here.

I have always believed that GM has had some very good Platforms, but not the best of Engines to go with those platforms. Moreover, what they did with those platforms did not do justice to their full potential. What are your thoughts on this? How do you see GM progressing in the coming years?

Cheers,
Roy
