What's the used Hyundai Getz hatchback like?

While other superminis rely on clever tricks and gimmicks to attract customers, the Getz concentrates on providing as much space and as much kit for as little cash as possible.

The Getz is very roomy for four people, and there's a large, well-shaped boot to accommodate their luggage. It's jam-packed with equipment, and you'll get more than the average supermini gives you for less money.

The cabin isn't quite up to European standards of build, but Hyundai has closed the gap in quality between itself and its competitors. Some interior panels do feel a bit cheap and flimsy, but it's not that far behind overall.

The drive is geared towards comfort rather than fun, with a soft, supple ride coming at the expense of sharp, fun handling. There's plenty of grip, but the car leans in corners and the engines are focused on economy rather than performance.
