Notably, the Beat and Beat Diesel have both helped bring exceptional sales for the American car maker and the decision to bring in a compact sedan based on Beat is believed to be a wise decision by the car maker when the compact sedan market is still unexplored with only two offerings – Tata Indigo eCS and new Maruti Swift Dzire. However, by Diwali Mahindra is also hoped to launch Mahindra Verito based compact sedan. Maruti is also said to have been working aggressively on the Maruti A Star sedan. Thus, with the launch of all these compact sedans, the segment is going to hot up and would compel the big sedan offerings to cut their prices.
