Despite being one of the largest automobile players globally, General Motors hasn’t been able to create a huge impact in the Indian market. An old product lineup and expensive after-sales service are the two major reasons behind the company’s not-so-impressive performance in the world’s sixth largest automobile market. Besides taking several measures to improve its after-sales experience, the American carmaker is also planning to bring in several new products in different segments to attract buyers. Here’s a list of all the upcoming Chevrolet Cars in India that we’ll see in the next two years.
The new Chevrolet Beat is unquestionably one of the most awaited upcoming Chevrolet Cars in India. the company’s top-selling hatchback is ready to enter the next generation sometime next year. The vehicle’s picture was released earlier this year, thus giving us a much clearer idea about the changes it will receive. Unlike the global model, the India-bound 2017 Beat will be based on the existing platform and it will continue to feature the same 1.0-litre diesel engine that also powers the existing model. Though it will get a new 1.0-litre petrol engine which could be the downsized version of the 1.4-litre EcoTech mill. The company might also retain the existing 1.2-litre SMARTECH petrol mill.
Though there may not be any major mechancial upgrades, the 2017 Chevrolet Beat will get some cosmetic changes. The new-gen model will get a new two-part grille with chrome surrounds on its lower part. The vehicle also gets new headlamp design. The vehicle’s side profile, however, will remain largely identical to the existing one.
Expected Launch – 2017
Expected Price – Rs 4.50 lakh – Rs 6.50 lakh
