A great car with equally good price tag, this is going to be a car to BEAT in its segment. It will set the cat among pigeons of small hatcbacks.

amazing review GTO. That's great. Looks people will buy it, but the top variant will be close to 5 lacs ( on road price).

Suddenly, GM seems to have done everything right. Great styling, funky interiors, but most importantly the price is great and warranty offered is also sufficient.

Thanks GTO for the detailed review. The rear door handle feature is neat. Does it mean kids can't open the rear door easily from outside?

Sir, they have more powerful sense then us when it comes to latest gadgets

Anyway, this design in Beat just makes it stand apart. Breaks the usual 4 door design, atleast in india.

Guys,

Are we ignoring a few basic issues with the car as reported by GTO:

1) Engine - Top end does not compare with Ritz
2) Gearshift quality - Poor
3) Handling - Not great

Cheers

Lack of top end speed shouldn't be a worry if you are basically going to use it as a city hatch.
Handling can be improved with fatter tires.
Gearshift .. Maybe a little vaseline

I have a Question.
  • The beat comes with integrated audio in the high end variant. What about the low and mid variant . Can aftermarket systems be fitted in these variants. Will there be provisions for it. And also can we go in for power windows for the back doors in the LS version along with the factory fitted front power windows unit.
I am leaning towards the Beige too @ jaggu . Balances out the flamboyant design with a subdued colour. But the best colours for this vehicle i think would be the red , green and blue.
