Just an observation these days on Delhi roads... New Santros (and i mean new!) and accents and even Sonatas have a sticker on the rear window which reads: "My next car: Hyundai Getz"
That suggests two things to me... cannot disclose as that may not sound good to my friends who own Hyundai cars(especially new ones)....::

I personally think the Getz is dead... even before it completed its first birthday... poor baby.. has to go... too much pricing.. ordinary performance..
... why the hell i wont buy an esteem or an indigo or even a flair for that much price(or a few thousands more..)...
goodbye Getz!..

Major part felt that Getz is overpriced. Still Getz is maintaining the same price & the sales would have improved a lot in comparison to its launch time. Thanks to Swift for creating an awarness on this B plus segment. It would have been interesting to watch if getz slashes 50 to 75 K,

anyway they are offering discounts upto 50k

This thread may 2 years old, but I still think the Getz is one of the better hatches we have around, & definitely better value than the Swift.

It's well built, solid, spacious & has a decent gas mileage - things that should count in this segment. Agreed, it is a bit overpriced, but I guess dealer discounts are taking care of that now. Unfortunately, it hasn't enjoyed the blazing sales success of the Swift, which I feel is quite rattly & poorly packaged, although a fantastic looker.

I too wasn't with TBHP in 2004, so just got a chance to vote and voted 'Yes'. Even after two years, question remains same and so does the answer.

for 5L, you can get the top end Swift with Alloys, ABS, Auto Climate Control, etc.......YES, the Getz is definitely overpriced
