Hyundai Getz Overview

The Hyundai Getz is a supermini front-engine passenger car widely favored for its affordability and advantageous size. It features a compact body detailed with a high-roof exterior, subtle lines, and pleasant curves. Its favorable size is ideal in city driving as it can easily drive through tight roads. Also, finding a spot to park is easy as it can rest in challenging areas regular-sized vehicles will not fit. In terms of interior comfort, this versatile passenger vehicle offers a decent size cabin fitted with basic passenger and driver necessities meant to provide a pleasant riding experience. The Hyundai Getz is offered in Sky Blue Metallic, Light Green Metallic, Noble White, Hip Hop Red, Ebony Black, Sheer Yellow, Space Silver Mica, and Tango Red Metallic. It is available in a 1.4-liter and a 1.6-liter engine paired with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed electronic Hivec transmission.

Launch

The Hyundai Getz was introduced in 2001 as the Korean automobile company’s entry to the growing demand for minicars worldwide. It initially debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show. A year after, Hyundai Motor Company presented the vehicle at the Geneva International Motor Show. It is marketed as the Hyundai Click in South Korea, the Hyundai TB in Japan, the Hyundai Getz Prime in India, the Dodge Brisa in Venezuela, and the Inokom Getz in Malaysia. 

In 2005, a refreshed version of the Hyundai Getz was unveiled at the International Motor Show Germany and was offered as a three and five-door hatchback. Locally, Hyundai Philippines introduced the Hyundai Getz in 2005. In the same year, it received the Subcompact Car of the Year award from Car Awards Group Inc. However, Hyundai Philippines is no longer selling the Getz. In its current model lineup, you can instead opt to get the Eon mini subcompact hatchback.
