Nothing specific dude & i totally agree with you that the crdi is a powerhouse for sure but i would anyday prefer a petrol car than a diesel. Just love the smoothness of a petrol car .

well not sure for i20's rear seats having same seating options as getz does in all its model.

@Caroholic congrats on the new Getz ! I love it in Red. I was almost going to get it in the same color but was vetoed by all at home so ended up with Blue. Looking for a detailed report from you once you put some miles on it.

Since when did the armrest come on the Getz ? The adjustable recline has been there since 2005 - I have it on my car.

Congrats caroholic....Getz is a real good car. Could you post your FE figures..
I have heard no so good reviews regarding Getz FE, my own 1.3 GLS, is giving around 11+ without AC in Bangalore. Came across a guy, who is quoting 8, 8.5..which is horrible..

Congrats again, and happy/safe driving.

Hi guys here are a few pics from my recent trip to Ludhiana. Got a FE of 13kmpl(approx) on the highway with an average speed of 110 & with the AC switched on all the time. Even got the pioneer single din installed with two pioneer speakers for the front. Will be getting the alloys & a new set of tyres very soon

Its less than a month & Iíve already done 2600Kms on the ODO & guys the car did extremely well on the highway too.

Is it recommended to get the Teflon coating done?

Congrats dude.

A specious and a good VFM car (after price cut).

The only con in 1.3 is FE. Overall is a nice package.

Hey buddy,

Must say an awesome car & the color suits the beauty! Looks like you are enjoying her a lot! .

The seat covers are great & the finish is perfect. How much did they cost you?

Wish you a happy & safe driving.
