35 Euro Cars That Can Save America: # 13 - Hyundai Getz

 

 

 

The Getz is an older model which could use a bit of a retouch. Quite competent and with very good build quality, the Getz provides good performance and definitely impressive fuel mileage. It's firmly in the middle of its class with quite a few cars that are better and quite a few cars that are worse to choose from.

 

The Hyundai Getz Hatchback 1.1 GSI 3 Door is estimated to carry a North American net sale price of $11,115.60, given the prevailing market pricing of similar automobiles. Its 1086 cc engine powers the car to a top speed of 91 MPH and an acceleration shown by a zero to sixty MPH time of 15.7 seconds. The performance factor of 11.9 is average for its class. The Hyundai Getz Hatchback 1.1 GSI 3 Door returns 60.1 MPG in highway driving, 40.9 MPG in the city, and a combined loop mileage of 51.4. With a fuel tank capacity of 9.9 gallons, the car can travel 595 miles on a full tank of unleaded regular fuel, but when it's filled right up to the top of the fuel filler neck, the total range should be approximately 717 miles. When all these price, performance and mileage factors are taken into consideration, the Hyundai Getz Hatchback 1.1 GSI 3 Door scores a combined Practicality Index of 77, with 100 representing the best, most practical car available and 1 representing a Hummer H3.
