If its for export, i am sure they wont send the car sans ABS.
Guess it will be the same here.

It is to cost 6.23L OTR here in Tvm. It will be detuned.

This news, if true, only confirms that newspapers shouldnt be used as a reliable source of a car's tech specs - like the Deccan Herald article that started this thread.

This now becomes a competitor to the D Fusion than the D Swift. And thats a better matched battle.

Guys dont believe in the ACI article, since ACI hits stands on the 23rd/24th, and Getz D was launched on September 27th.

Any one notice that the Getz D comes with 14inch rubber?
Maybe they have done some additional tuning to the suspension to handle the extra weight.

@lambo.... I hope they have, else 110bhp 24 kgm diesel with that dillt-dolly softy suspension is a recipie for disaster.

Thumbs down Getz Diesel Interiors Very Poor

Yesterday, I visited HMIL showroom at Haji Ali in Mumbai. I could see a Getz (Petrol) version with beige interiors and the central console was made up of wooden mat finish plastic which really looked very very cheap. The dealer told me that all the Getz cars will be with same interiors irrespective of the fact whether its a diesel or a petrol. The plastic used looked so cheap that I got down from the car and went ahead to look into Getz 1.1Ltr. Petrol version interiors, where I found Aluminium brushed metal type finish on the central console. And that looked relatively up market as compared to the plastic wooden mat finish centre console used in 1.3 and 1.5Lts Getz. The dealer also confirmed that the power of new Getz will be 110BHP and they will start the delivery of new cars during Diwali, and he was insisting me to book the car, but I told him that without taking the test drive it would be difficult to make up my mind and purchase the Getz Diesel...Swift interiors though not very Up Market definitely look superior to Getz interiors. Also the beige colour used in Getz is not very appealing and looks like a brownish yellow colour with some dirt settled on it!!!!

Did you actually see the Getz D at your dealer's?

And is there a difference between Getz 1.1 and 1.3 interiors? I've been in a 1.3 and didn't have much of a problem with it's interiors. Looked pretty ok to me. Yet to see the interiors of a 1.1 .

Default superb sales guy

hi guys,
As I was interested to know about Getz crdi and been comparing with the Swift diesel and wanted t/d , I visited Advaith Hyundai at Residency Raod since I stay in Jayanagar, and as i read about this gentlemen Niran Thimmiah, walked in and asked for the same guy, a smart looking guy walked towards me and shook hands and wished me , I told him that one of my friend had referred his name to contact him. First i wanted to see the car and test drive,he told me that the car is reaching them in aday or two and started giving me the details on the car, the first thing i asked him was what was the engine cc and bhp, he replied to me saying it is 1500cc and 110bhp, and then told me that the features would be of getz 1.1 gvs, and when i asked him about the delivery schedule he gave me very honest reply stating that they are not in the position to give the car immediatley neverthless told me he would check with hyundai and confirm that.The way he handled me I was thoroughly impressed with Niran a superb sales guy, over all i would say at ADVAITH HYUNDAI i had great experience even though I went with negative perception about the dealer and the sales guy, my experience with them is excellent. I should thank teambhp for this .

@BUSA - AFAIK only the Getz GLX came with 14inchers. Things could have changed but thats what i remember last time i checked.
According to ACI, the Getz will be available nationwide from the 2nd week of October.

Lots of potential customers go through and benefit from teambhp posts everyday. There must be a few folks from dealerships too going through the posts. If not, they better start soon
