Hyundai Getz (TB Getz Series II)
Model: TB Getz Series II
Jan / 2005Release date:
A smoother new nose, upgraded interior specifications and trim, and revised engines summed up the TB Getz facelift.
The 60kW 1.3 and 74kW 1.5 were ousted for a 70kW/126Nm 1.4 and 78kW/144Nm 1.6-litre four-cylinder units, each with double overhead cams and 16-valve heads.
Again the model was offered in three and five-door hatchback configurations.
Significantly, the volume-selling 1.6 came standard with anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, while all Getz models included air-conditioning, dual front airbags, power steering remote central locking, an alarm, MP3/CD audio and power mirrors.
From early ’06 stability control was also available in the Getz 1.6 models, along with a sporty FX 1.6, with racier trim and alloy wheels.
For 2007 HYUNDAI has launched a limited-edition "Click" version of its smallest model, the Getz.
It's distinguishable from the base by 14-inch alloy wheels and Click exterior badging, and inside adds blue cloth trim, chromed interior door-handles, a brushed alloy-look dashboard and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with remote audio controls.
The Click is available on 1.4-litre S and 1.6-litre SX three-door Getz models only and adds $500 to the price, with metallic/mica paint costing a further $300 - before on-road costs.
Standard on all Getz variants is air-conditioning with pollen filter, power windows/mirrors, front active “anti-whiplash” head restraints, remote central locking with alarm, a six-speaker stereo with MP3 and WMA-compatible CD player, full-size spare wheel and driver’s seat height adjustment.
The 1.6-litre Getz adds an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) as standard.
The Getz Click is available in just three colours: Noble White, Midnight Grey and Sky Blue.
