You have not mentioned about wether it is a petrol version or a diesel version. If its petrol version then it’s the maximum mileage you can get. If it’s a diesel version than its needs to be thought about. Mileage of any car depends upon many factors right from condition of the engine to driving habits of the driver. Apart from maintaining car in best condition including tyre condition and air pressure in tyres, using proper gears also helps. Best possible mileage can be get when vehicle is driven in top gear. As far as rpm is considered, it would be easy to check vehicle speed for selection of gears than rpm. You can run vehicle at speeds of 30 to 80kmph in third or fourth gear and later on in top gear.
Chevrolet Beat claims 18 kmpl mileage in city and 25 kmpl on highways, which is good mileage figure. Though handling and condition of car calculates the actual mileage, for a good figure you should take it for regular servicing and drive in the low rpm range. The gear shift should be done at approx. 3000 to 3500 rpm for 3th, 4th and 5th gear and around 2500 to 3000 rpm for 1st and 2nd gear.
