The Chevrolet Beat 2017 was recently spied testing along the Mumbai-Pune Expressway while in camouflage. The car appears to be in its prototype stage and is based on the concept model of the Beat Activ, which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2016.

The overall body profile of the predecessor Beat has been retained, with minor modifications here and there. The front profile displays a revamped new headlamp, bumpers and fenders. The sides and rear looks the same as the outgoing model, with new rear bumpers, tailgate and tail lights. However, it's the interiors that has undergone significant changes, like a refreshed instrument cluster and an infotainment with touchscreen display on the new dashboard layout.

Though the headlamps and tail light retain the shape from its predecessor, they lose the ever so attractive LED element. The roof rails has also been removed by Chevrolet, who has been saving those for a more rugged looking model of the 2017 Beat that will be up against the Tata Tiago Aktive.

However, this new revamped version of the Chevrolet Beat will necessarily be a facelifted variant and will not undergo any changes on the technical aspects. It will continue to be built on the same platform of 57.1PS power and 142.5Nm torque three cylinder 1.0 litre turbo diesel engine and a 1.2 litre four cylinder petrol engine with 77.9PS power and 106.5Nm of torque. Both these models will be mated with 5-speed manual transmission gearbox.

Though anymore details couldn't be traced, this prototype staged car is expected to hit the showrooms by the second half of 2017 and will be facing a tough competition as it will be up against the likes of the Hyundai Grand i10 2017, that will be launched in January next year.
