Which used Hyundai Getz hatchback should I buy?

There are lots of petrol engines to choose from, depending on what age of car you're considering. Originally, a 1.1, 1.3 and 1.6 were offered, and we like the 1.1 best. It has just 62bhp, but performance is okay and it's extremely lean on petrol.

Later on, the 1.3 and 1.6 units were binned in favour of a 95bhp 1.4. This engine was the sweetest yet, but not as frugal as the 1.1.

Two versions of a 1.5-litre diesel engine were also sold, one with 87bhp and the other 109bhp. Both give excellent fuel economy, but neither is very quick.

Early cars were offered in GSi or CDX trim. All come with power steering, a CD player, anti-lock brakes and electric front windows, while CDX cars also has air-con, side airbags, remote central locking and powered rear windows. Later examples all have air-con, while newer CDX cars also get alloy wheels. And, given how cheap they are, you might as well go for the CDX.
