Getz Prime

Recommended Posts

Hi Members,

I am planning to buy a hatchback and my budget is max 5lacs. After exploring all possible options, I have finally settled myself for either Getz 1.1 or 1.3L (Just not interested in Swift). Please suggest which would be a better option for me. I am baffled as there is a huge difference of price between these two model. Both these models have their own pros and cons....one has peroformance issues on top gears while other is a bit expensive and lower mileage.

Your suggestions would be of great help for me in selecting the best option. The Deisel variant would be too expensive for my pocket so please don't comment on those.Thanks in advance.

The price difference come primarily due to the Govt. regulation of only 8% excice provided the engine <1.2L (P) or 1.5 (L) diesel and the vehicle length is <4.0m. Obviously there is no free lunch so the 1.3 will have better performance and higher consumption.

Go for 1.3lt one you don't want the santro to overtake you would you.smiley36.gif

smiley36.gif nice one rssh.... but, maybe a 1.1 would make more sense for him because of the long trips you drive occasionally.... it would give you better mileage and hence lower running cost... if power is not the only thing you want, then i suggest you go for the 1.1

1.1 is no doubt a better option on towns.All I am concerned that will 1.1 uphold itself a journey of 300 kms at a strech in highways carrying 4 peoples? If it can' date=' then I have no better option than 1.1 else I need to go with 1.3.

I dont think there will be an issue with driving 300km at a stretch.. with a reliable car like hyundai.

 

In fact i have made non stop 300-400km trips with my Maruti 800 without any issues.

go ahead and take the 1.1 then. as far as i know it'll be a good city car and it'll be sufficiently capable of the 300kms travel occasionally. it'll be very comfortable for 4 too

How can the 1.1 engine be comfaortable , the comfort depends on the Saeting and hieght of it and thigh Support and of course the engine Matter but not by very much

Try the i10 or the Swift

Hi Sachin,

 

When buying a hatch, herd mentality helps. It gets u best resale value and also a good car. Always follow the crowd. I also love underdogs but I think overlooking the Swift will not be good for u. Swift is one hatch loved by all: rich and middle class and all, it has class and is a damn good ride to own. Getz is good, but compared to the Swift is low on features and high on price soo the low sales figures.

hey there! my suggestion will also be for 1.3, its better to think on the requirements for atleast 3 years...if yu wanna buy 1.1 i wud also suggest you to look at i10, the major difference will be the spacing... but 1.3 will take care of ur current requirements and even if increases wthin next 3 years... am using 1.3 for the last 3 years and am pretty happy with its performance.... i get 11kms per lt in city and apprxmtly 15kms on highways...

Hi' date='

 

If pricing factor and resale value be removed, what is the major advantages that swift has over getz??

I think you are like me: head over heels for the Hyundai. Go ahead I suggest the Getz diesel. That's the most desirable Getz to own. I own a Hyundai Elantra, but had I waited a wee bit longer I may have bought the Civic. But I got a good deal on the Elantra. The difference is one's a plane Jane the other is Marilyn Monroe.
