This has all the characteristics of a Leslie Nielsen movie.

Absolutely. The Swift scores on looks and appeal but the Getz also has its strengths. It far comfier on the inside, especially at the rear, unlike the cramped Swift. The build quality is excellent with superior overall quality (unlike the flimsy Swift). Ride quality is again a Getz strong point. The 1.3 is no scorcher, but is refined and offers decent driveability.

Well..forget brand reputation for a moment and tell me what Getz has to command a premium?

Whereas City has some unique intrinsic values (independent of the brand) like FE (iDSI), performance (Vtec), world class automatic (CVT).

If Hyundai can make a car like City, it will sell.

Most of Hyundai's products in India have been good so far....their build quality,dealership,service etc.The only thing they have'nt got it right is the pricing.They need to realize that the benchmark for pricing is set by Maruti & Tata.IMO,the Indian public at large donot bother much about looks & safety.What they do is about price & fuel efficiency.If they can get atleast the former right,they can get the 20% share in no time,if not God save them.

They should do something about Elantra as well.

Hyundai has to provide 'value for money' in every segment that it competes. People have a certain image and expectation with this brand, and if by looking on their website and in media they find that those values are not being fulfilled, they don't bother to enter any Hyundai showroom.

Either they upgrade the quality+performance+equipment matrix for their cars substantially, or they need to reduce the price of their automobiles.
