What extra does the Getz CRDi have infront of the Swift D? For 45k what do you get?
  • ABS Mandatory (hatts of to you Hyundai )
  • Better Build Quality
  • No rattles
  • More space/comfort
  • Beige Interiors
  • 35bhp extra and 5KGM torque more
  • Bigger Boot
Is it worth it, hell yes, you get so much mroe car, engine, features comapred to the Swift.

Fabia's engine cant be comapared to the Getz, its a 3 pot after all.

Anyways test drive car is going to be here in 2 days.

BTW, Hyundai is going to be back in a respectable postition, next launch is PA in Diwali and then is the Elantra(New) by December, New Santro with CRDi.

This car comes with 175 rubber FYI.

Great going Hyundai !!!! This surely sounds like a HOT HATCH !!! If it performs / handles as good as it seems on paper - then the Maruti Swift is going to loose customers left right & center. Pre-empting which they are offering the 24% interest on deposit...

Things are beginning to look very interesting !!! Test drive reports keenly awaited !!!

Cheers

So this is not copy paste of GVS , but something mixture of all the variants.

This clearly shows Hyundai want to take care of maruti + skoda , and they were waiting for final fabia specs.

LOL Ajay, i am totally bowled over, the specs are incredible & hatts of to Hyundai.

If i get a Getz, then surely its going to be Peted and expect 0 - 100 less then 9 secs.

What MUL did when they launched the Swift was to take Vxi and add body coloured mirrors, Hyundai has done much more

@ Coach - 30000 for 20 more bhp and 30KGM seems totally worth it & the car will not only be more faster but much more drivable.

it might take some time for Pete's to come out with a box for Getz D. Will Getz be able to handle such power remains to be seen?

Finally, Swift D has a competition!

If Getz D is priced sensibly, would definitly give Swift a run for its money & the long waiting period!

Expect more fun after the launch of Fabia and Punto 1.3 Multijet!

Sort of confusing. In the "Safety" link it says ABS optional is available for the Getz Prime. Does that apply for the Diesel as well?

Another query. What could be the FE?

True. Now Swift has to face a tough competition.

Buddies, any of you have idea about the following.

- It seems ABS is not part of standard fittings as per the info from HM site. Will it be avialable as a optional item?
- What will be the OTR price with ABS @Bangalore?

Based on this I need to think of shifting my VDI(ABS) booking.
