Hyundai’s all-new Getz supermini has won a thumbs-up from CAP Auto Monitor, a highly influential authority when it comes to predictions of resale values for cars.
CAP Auto Monitor stated the Getz, which went on sale last week, will give its typical competitors (such as the Volkswagen Polo and Toyota Yaris) a run for their money when it comes to running costs and future resale values.
And Hyundai’s pioneering five year manufacturer-backed, unlimited mileage across-the-range warranty (the UK’s first), will help enhance the whole Getz experience, according to CAP.
CAP has calculated the ownership cost of a Hyundai Getz to be just 16.5p a mile over three years and 60,000 miles, a highly favourable figure compared to the likes of the Peugeot 206, Renault Clio and Vauxhall Corsa.
CAP’s survey said: "The Getz takes the concept of low front end price, together with extremely high specification and a five year warranty, to achieve comparable running costs with traditionally higher image European-brand vehicles."
Added Jeff Knight, CAP Editor: "The fit and finish of the exterior panels is good and this is backed-up by an extremely roomy and well constructed interior with plenty of storage, comfort and safety features, including driver, passenger and side airbags.
"Its future success as a used car will be enhanced by its five year warranty which will not only be welcomed by customers but, also dealers, looking for trouble-free affordable used car retail stock both in and out of the Hyundai dealer network," he said.
Getz prices start at £6,995 on-the-road for the 1.1 GSi three-door, rising to £10,145 for the 1.6 CDX five-door and 1.6 Sport three-door. All models come with anti-lock brakes, CD player, driver and passenger airbags and electric front windows as standard.
