    @ kedarbendre you are right...they are concentrating more on the 'Aam Janta' with this model ..It will be the mileage factor which will be a major hit. Even though the same mileage is offered in the new Indigo Ev2, the Chevy brand name will be an aded advantage

    Chevy and Fiats are not a comparasion, its like two opposite things, Fiat diesel engines are universally used in many cars today, but i think ll b a over load for beat's Chassis. and more over Beat guess will sell more as is pretty low prices in its range now a 1 Ltr diesel guess will even pump up the sales, as diesel modern engines are mostly preferred by people nowadays. Rest ll have to wait and watch...

    Request the moderator to move this thread to the appropriate heading.

    Bur on the other hand I am sure this would have been moved if this was is the wrong place.

    You got it all wrong there brother.

    I'd meant a different forum altogether. Whose tagline is " The definitive indian car community".:D

    As i said , thats my view, and others can debate on this thread as and when they want.

    I find the rumored specs i.e. 57bhp and 140-150Nm downright silly.

    Low bhp and high torque (at low rpms) figures are better left for tractor engines.

    If anyone has driven a tractor, they'll know what i mean!
