HYUNDAI scored a di­rect hit with its Getz baby car. The tim­ing was per­fect be­cause the mar­ket was down­siz­ing in a big way. In no time at all the Getz was chal­leng­ing for the baby car lead.

It’s still early days for the up­dated Getz. The ear­li­est ones would only have 50,000km on them, but they seem to be go­ing well.

The things to check for are crash dam­age and a lack of ser­vic­ing. sta­bil­ity con­trol, trac­tion con­trol and side airbags, but to have them you had to buy the op­tion pack. A FUEL miser, the Getz will get 6-7 litres for 100km around town use and do a lit­tle bet­ter on the open road.

Re­li­able: the Hyundai Getz is a fuel miser and good value for money, but isn’t an ex­cite­ment ma­chine.
