The Hyundai Getz is a supermini car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai from 2002 to 2011. It was marketed in most of the world, except the United States, Canada and China. It was available in three and five-door hatchback body styles.

It has also been marketed as the Hyundai Click in South Korea and Syria, Hyundai Getz Prime in India, Hyundai TB (for "Think Basic") in Japan,[4] Inokom Getz in Malaysia, or Dodge Brisa in Venezuela.

After the launch of its successors, the i20 in Europe and Accent WIT in South Korea, the Getz continued to be marketed worldwide.


[edit] Engines

At the Getz's launch in 2002, 1.3 and 1.5-litre petrol or 1.5-litre turbodiesel engines were available. From 2004, a new 1.1 litre engine was introduced to the line and a 1.4 litre engine replaced the 1.3 litre. A 1.6 litre engine replaced the 1.5 litre. However, availability of engine options varies depending on market.

The 1.6 litre gasoline engine is unavailable in New Zealand, as well as some countries in Southeast Asia and South America.

In late-2008, a fully electric version of the car was introduced in New Zealand and Australia. This model has a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) and a range of 120 kilometres (75 mi) on a full charge.[5][6]

[edit] Facelift

Facelift Hyundai Getz SX 3-door, Australia
Facelift Hyundai Getz S 3-door Australia

Hyundai facelifted the Getz in Autumn 2005. At the same time, the Getz received a new 1.5-litre diesel engine option in Europe and also a new 1.4-litre petrol engine that develops 107 hp (80 kW), upgraded dash and interior fascia and trim, new front and rear styling, driver and front passenger air bags. In the UK, air conditioning and side airbags were fitted to all models as standard equipment. This facelifted model, however, is not offered in Venezuela (where it is sold as the Dodge Brisa); instead, the local arm of Hyundai continues to sell the pre-2006 model.[3]

[edit] Trim levels

Trim levels in the UK for the Getz are GSi, CDX and Sport, in New Zealand the trim levels are XD and XE.

In Australia, the trim levels were XL (base model - 1.3), GL (base model - 1.5) & FX (sports model - 1.5) from 2002-05. When the Getz received its first facelift in 2005, the FX was replaced by the sporty SXi, while the XL & GL names were dropped and just referred to as "Getz". Half-way through 2006, due to disappointing sales, the SXi was dropped, leaving just the base Getz with the option of 1.4 or 1.6-litre engines. In early 2007, the Getz 1.4 was renamed "S", and the 1.6 was renamed "SX".

A special trim level called the Getz Cross features SUV design elements such as extended wheel arches, roof rack, raised suspension and larger wheels.[7] This is offered with the 1.4, 1.6, or 1.5 CRDi engines.[8]

[edit] Marketing

[edit] Dodge Brisa

In Venezuela, the Getz is badge-engineered as the Dodge Brisa in its 1.3 litre, 4-speed manual transmission configuration. This new model replaces the Accent-based Brisa that debuted in that market in April 2002. As of 2007, Hyundai is marketing the Getz in Venezuela under the Hyundai brand, but continues to build the 1.3 litre model for the Brisa. To differentiate from the Brisa, the Venezuelan model retains its pre-2006 design.

[edit] Inokom Getz

In Malaysia, the Getz is locally assembled as the Inokom Getz. The model offers both manual and automatic transmission with a single 1.4 litre petrol engine option.[9]

In the last quarter of 2009, Inokom launched a limited edition Getz SE, which featured leather interior, sporty body kit and grill and side mirrors with indicators. Only 300 units of this variant were produced.

[edit] Worldwide markets

  • Europe: 2002–2008
  • Japan: 2002–2009
  • India: 2002–2010
  • Australia: 2002–2012
  • Indonesia: 2003-2009 [10]

[edit] Safety

2007 Hyundai Getz Cross 5-door hatchback.

[edit] Euro NCAP

  • Adult Occupant: 4/5 stars, score 25
  • Child Occupant: 4/5 stars, score 37
  • Pedestrian: 1/4 stars, score 5

[edit] ANCAP

  • Overall Evaluation: 4/5 stars, score 25.35 out of 37

Reflecting market priorities and price point control, some safety equipment is either unavailable or available only as extra-cost options on some models in some markets. The South African and Philippine market versions, for example, are not available with side airbags at any price and make do without a rear fog light or a third three-point seatbelt on the rear seat. In the Philippines and South America, the Getz is not fitted with airbags or ABS brakes as standard equipment.

In Australia, the 2002-04 Getz was assessed in the 2006 Used Car Safety Ratings (UCSR) as providing "significantly worse than average" protection for its occupants in the event of a crash.[11]

  • Performance in Preventing Serious Injury to the Driver: 1/5 stars
  • Harm to Others: Average

Conversely, the car was awarded a respectable 4 stars (out of five) in its 2004 Euro NCAP and 2008 Australasian NCAP (ANCAP)[12] crash tests. It turned in what Euro NCAP described as a "reasonably balanced performance" and "generally good" in-car protection for children. It was noted, however, that the design of the car did little to protect pedestrians.[13]

[edit] Awards

  • Australia's Best Small Car in 2003 and 2005
  • Scottish Small Car of the Year award in 2003
  • UK What Car? Magazine Budget Car of the Year in 2003
  • Budget car champion on the UK motoring programme Fifth Gear in 2003
  • Denmark's Best Seller of 2003 award
  • Portuguese Car of the Year for 2004 (1.5 CRDI)

[edit] Replacement

In late 2008, the i20 was introduced, replacing the Getz in most markets. In Europe, the Getz co-existed with the i20 until it was completely phased out in 2011. The Getz continued to be sold in the Australian market until December 2010.[14] In India, the car was discontinued due to falling demand as compared to the warm response received by the i20 and the introduction of the new Euro 4 emission norms from May 2010.[citation needed]

In mid-2011, the Click was replaced in the South Korean market by the Hyundai Accent WIT. In Japan, where it was known as the TB, the car was discontinued shortly before Hyundai officially announced the departure of its passenger car division from the market in late-2009. Countries that do not offer the i20 or Accent hatchback have designated the i10 as the Getz's replacement.

The Getz continues to be sold in Venezuela, Malaysia, Vietnam and parts of the Middle East.
