Everyone is talking about the Getz, and its around-the-corner arrival has seen a lot of price cuts around the segment.

Most professionals predict that the price will be around 5 lacs, but I would not call it that wise. It is a premium hatch and all that, but now you can get full blown sedans for that money. The Fiat Petra, Maruti Esteem, Ford Ikon etc. are all within the 5 lac bracket. Why, even Hyundai had a special promo going on last year where they were offering the Accent for 5 lacs.

So what do you think will be the EX-SHOWROOM price in Mumbai for the starting (cheapest) version?

This one should be fun

IMHO...

Seeing that Hyundai has already cut the price tag on the Santro to take the battle to the likes of the Alto, I guess it would make sense to position their 'premium hatchback' somewhere close to the others in the market like the Palio. In fact against the Corsa Sail, I guess they would have a fairly distinct advantage if they do price it in the 4 - 4.75 lakh price band.

And such a move would make the most logical 'business sense' to Hyundai, since this helps them straddle the gap between the Santro and the Accent.

Will be priced in the 4.3 - 4.75 lakh bracket to begin with. Less than that and it will eat away at the Santro market. More than that and it will eat into the Accent.

Ofcourse, the top of the line Getz would probably be priced very close to the base Accent.

4.2-5.5 L depending on options. the basic getz will be about the pice of a loaded santro and a loaded getz will be the price of a basic accent. the recent lowering of santro prices seem to suggest that the getz will come is at about 4.2L and then an auto version with a bunch of bells and whistles will bo sold at jus tunder or equal to the basic accent.

the price will be close to 4.10 to 4.30 for the base verison, ex-showroom mumbai
Have via via source in Hyundai , who informed me.
However cound not obtain details on the different models available
He said they want to price it competitively against the sail.
But it should not eat into the Santro market.
The market for sedan and Hatch is totally different , so there will be no customer as such who will be deciding on Getz OR Accent.

I would guess 4.5L for the base version ex-showroom.
(also this depends on how basic their base version is going to be...!)

would mind paying 4.5 for the crdi one though,, if not would happily go in for a bolero with fat alloys for that macho appeal, or a second hand scorpio/safari

Even the carmakers seem to be blurring the lines that separate the premium hatchbacks from the sedans.

Check out this story on the Fusion.

i think it wud be more than 5 lacs but less than 5.75lacs.as anything closer to the xing cud cannibalise the sales of the xing.
so the base version maybe 5 lacs and the crdi maybe 6lacs.
