Hyundai Getz

Taking careful aim at the European small-car market, Hyundai had the Getz designed at the company’s European styling studio to ensure the final product met European tastes and needs. In late 2006, Getz production shifted from Korea to India, expanding the role of the Indian subsidiary as Hyundai’s global hub for small cars. Getz exports from India began recently.

The five-seat, five-door hatchback stands 1.5m tall, shorter than the Atos, but the Getz is longer, sporting a wheelbase of 2.5m and an overall length of 3.8m. Power comes from a wide variety of powerplants: The base Indian version is fitted with a 1.4-liter SOHC. Gas-electric hybrid versions of the Getz are available in Korea, while Europeans favor the 1.5-liter diesel. The 1.6-liter DOHC gas engine is the most popular in all other markets. Electronic brake force distribution and dual front and side airbags are among the options. Since the model’s introduction in 2002, more than 863,000 units have been sold.

Getz prices start at $9,400(Rs4,01,474) and max out at $11,700(Rs4,99,707).
