Default Getz prime 1.3 is overpriced than previous getz ( old one )?

Hi ,

During my research I found that the old getz GLS version was costing around 4.96lkh on road in pune till Dec 2006 jan 2007. But the new Getz prime is demanding 5.49 on road means almost 50k more and there are no discounts offered.

Question is Hyundai want customers to pay 50k just for new head and tail lamps? Also as Getz will be manufactured 100 % in India , the cost should be decreased and not increased ?

Any comments/ ideas?

In order to give a price gap between Santro - Getz 1.1 & Getz 1.3. A stupid decision was made...nothing else. They will soon need a price correction for its competition is way cheaper.
Compare the prices..
Getz Prime 1.3
GLS: 4.89L
GLX: 5.24L

Lxi: 3.99L
Vxi: 4.28L
Zxi: 5.04L

Palio 1.6 @ 4.31L
(All prices Ex-Showroom Delhi)

By the way The new getz prime looks really good ( See it in showroom , not just the pictures ) but price wise I simply can not understand what they are doing

May be hyundai is trying to put GLS version against/ around swift Zxi or making GLS as swift vxi+ few other things( body colored handles , rear defogger + wiper etc etc) which are missing in swift lxi

But it does not become complete package to stand against the swift package because of the price.

In this case I am wondering what can be the getz crdi price? also the verna crdi engine is huge improvement over the Accent CRDI. So if they are fitting Accent CRDI crdi in getz and start asking for ~1lkh premium over the GLS then I guess it will be a suicide.

May be I am wrong but I am trying to understand the logic behind getz pricing

From day 1, pretty much everything about Getz has been proved to be wrong. This price increase extends the insanity.
