The Getz will have neck snapping in-gear acceleration times, but the Palio scores on revvability and great power delivery throughout all gears and that brilliant engine note, which is cricial for the hot hatch experience.

Also, the getz happens to be more than a lakh Rs costilier than the Palio.

P.S: I also bought a 1.6 sport last Friday

I thought GETZ will win this poll handsomly, but there is only marginal difference. It seems that even if Hyundai had plonked 5 LTR , 500HP engine, 500NM tourqe engine still FP16 would have come very close .

Hey guys,

Its very unfare to compare and believe in this result.
I would like to reiterate here that,
Title is hot hatch war bet. Getz CRDi and Palio 1.6 sports.

For this no one should consider the price.
Its only the performance which is the criteria.

And secondly, not many have driven the Getz CRDi yet. There are NO official test drive avialable in showrooms across India(Atleast I know of Bangalore/Karnataka and Pune/Maharasthra).

So I'll not believe in this result.

Nothing can beat Palio in terms of stability and SUV kinda of feeling over bad / broken roads. Its unbeatable in comparison with Getz no matter what we may talk about performance, VFM etc and aftre sales services. Palio is a very sturdy and built to last car. Getz is in comparison , flimsy and too tinny.

@shatrughna, have you extensively driven the getz?
I have extensively driven the 1.2 Palio and Getz petrol, and did not find the Getz tinny etc., etc.,

Getz.....flimsy & tinny ???.Boss,I've driven 50k km in it,mostly on bad roads & highways.Still no rattles,no unwanted noises,soaks in bumps without making a fuss.I've known people who have done 1.2lac km & they're extremely happy with the body & chassis albeit a little dissapointed with the sluggish engine.BTW,I drove a Palio D for over a year in 2003-04 & I know what OTHER problems the car has.....some of them I could'nt live with.

Hyundai Getz is supposed to have such good interior space, it can shame even sedans.

I voted for the Palio 1.6 because it is a petrol and it is cheaper than the getz. Isn't the feeling, the sound, etc., that you get when you accelerate (till redline) with a reasonably good petrol engine better than a diesel? Rev range of a diesel puts me off.

As for the car being old, what are you talking about? The looks? definitely not. Interiors? May be, but you can always get it changed with the amount that you save by buying the palio.

I own a Getz Prime 1.3 GLX. Its very comfortable. I had used Palio diesel and love Palio too. I like cars with build quality and both cars score in this regard.
My vote goes to Getz CRDI for the Power+Mileage+Comfort+Space+Reliablility.

dude, you are just stating the conclusions but what is the reasoning you used to arrive at these conclusions ?? And why shouldn't it matter when we talk about performance and after sales service ? Are these not the criteria for a hot hatch ?

Preface: A hot hatch should be about the overall experience, which includes revvability, sound from the engine, gearshift, stability, steering response and feedback, the X-factor. I am not considering petrol diesel price parity and initial cost of purchase.

The steering response and feedback and that fabulous 100 bhp petrol engine is enough for me to vote for Palio over the Getz. Besides the 1.6 Palio is nimbler, the interiors are shamelessly driver centric ( i love the way the whole central console is tilted towards the driver), the seating is low, the gearshift is awesome and stability at speeds is great.
Again I am not saying I will buy the 1.6 over the Getz, if asked to choose among one of them, but considering whats being asked in the thread, I voted for Palio.

What's the purpose of this thread? There's no Getz CRDi available for TD in most parts of the country.
Hardly any of us have driven it. What's the fun in speculating things about Getz Crdi on basis Getz petrol and Verna engine.??
Palio 1.6 should be compared to petrol cars like Swift P /Getz P/Fusion/..Its not fair to compare 1.6 with a diesel just bcos it has powerful engine.

No offence to anyone. Just my opinion.
