Chevrolet Beat LPG could be my next car
Pros : Sporty looks, good mileage
Cons : None
I have to buy a new car for myself, considering the constant hikes in petrol prices and uncertainty over diesel prices; I am confused if I should go for a diesel car or for a LPG car. I have Chevrolet Beat diesel LT (O) on mind, which has a 1.0 litre, three pot, DOHC engine that delivers a very good fuel efficiency.
Also along with it I have Chevrolet Beat 1.2 LT LPG that has a 1199 cc engine, though it renders a mileage ranging between 10.2 kmpl to 13.3 kmpl but the expenditure on fuel will reduce extensively which is my current concern. I took the test drive of Beat diesel, I think the engine is a bit noisy and the hatchback is pricey too, therefore I might go for the Beat LPG as it would cost me less than diesel. Also LPG cost I hope will not fluctuate as much as compared to petrol or even diesel which could get a hike in coming time who knows.
