Probably you'll get a call on 11th or later. It'll be long Q before you get to drive the car.

Nice. Just the kind of news I like to hear in the middle of the night.

Too bad about the delayed CRDi though.

Well if you see, huge billboards promoting the Getz are all over the city. I guess it should be out soon

I almost had a drive of the Getz when I'd gone to pick up my new CRDi today but instead just ended up revving it. Btw the car is pretty big inside & it looks pretty good.

Lambo,
I liked the Getz. Its pretty big for a small car...both outside & inside. Infact its not a small car..a big car without a trunk. Interiors are pretty spacious & airy. Rear Seating especially was good...you don't sit low down like Accent or Honda city. It was pretty good. Review?? dude it was a 10mins see that I got. Started the car & revved it & I had to rush to Mahalaxmi temple..Dad was waiting at Breachcandy hospital
Btw CRDi in Getz would be offered next year he said. My estimate would be around Feb-March. As of now only one engine-1.3L & three trims in that. GL,GLS, GLS with ABS. Base price around 4.7-4.9L.
