Read Hyundai Getz

From drive.com.au



Here is the production version of Hyundai's new small car, the Getz, flagged in concept car form at last week's Melbourne Motor Show.
The real thing has turned up on the other side of the world, at this week's Geneva Motor Show.

Due for launch later this year, the so-called "super mini" Getz is a small hatchback crossed with a compact people-mover just like the Melbourne show concept.

The Barina-sized new car is set to slot into its range below the Accent, but Hyundai Australia says it won't be the car that causes it to revive its Excel-style $13,990 driveaway marketing.

"Hyundai?s rapid maturation as a car maker means that Getz is a state-of-the art affordable small car, embodying all the sophistication of design, engineering, safety and feature integration one could expect of any of the long-established European or Japanese brands," says Hyundai Automotive Distributors Australia CEO, Mr C.K. Liew.

"Purchasing this level of sophistication with our weak currency exchange rate means that in six months time, when we hope to launch Getz locally, it will probably land at prices starting around where Accent is now."

Getz is built on an all-new generation light car platform, which Hyundai says has the potential to spawn other small "lifestyle" vehicle variants from the car maker in the future.

Both three- and five-door Getz models share the same wheelbase.

Engine choice in Europe runs from 1.1 to 1.6 litre, four cylinder petrol and a 1.5 litre common-rail diesel. The concept Getz unveiled in Tokyo last October and shown at this year's Brisbane and Melbourne Motor Shows gets a 1.3 litre engine.

Other Getz highlights include electric power steering, together with what Hyundai says is advanced safety engineering, three-point centre rear retractable seat belt, comprehensive sound insulation and fun-to-drive dynamics.
