only a 25 hp increase with a turbo? weak...
Thanks for the links.
So the Beat is essentially a 3 door version of the Aveo 5 door.
At least thats how it looks. And its not likely GM would spend the millions to create a vehicle just a few inches in size from one they already offer.
And thats cool to say the least. I'll be ready to trade for the beat when its ready.
"Chevrolet Beat, Groove, and Trax: Originally showcased at the 2007 New York International Auto Show these three concept vehicles each highlighted a different direction the Kalos platform might develop. At the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show, General Motors announced the Beat will go into production for the world market, although not immediately in the United States."

that means the sport package probably won't make it to the states but the base model will, only gm would pull somethin like that.General Motors announced the Beat will go into production for the world market, although not immediately in the United States.
Its only the bean counters..
Since the car has a turbo, the insurance industry will go ape ****, and make the cars, to pricey to insure, thus lowering the potential sales, thus keeping the car off of these shores.
Another "Gamma Platform" maybe car.
I like it.

Since GM is gonna have everyone jumping down their throats and watching over their shoulders, these will forever be concepts. GM has to focus on the Volt platform if they ever want to get ahead in the industry and out of the red.
You think those pictures are concept car styling or production car styling?
i dont know what to say about either one of them except they are very interesting looking.
