    On the face of it, we have a winner

    Make : Hyundai
    Model : Getz

    It’s no surprise that the Getz looks like something designed in Germany, Italy or France – it has been specifically styled to appeal to European tastes. Getz is a squat car, and the roofline tapers at the rear to give a sleek silhouette, and in the GLS version, there’s a near spoiler at the rear. The car’s height is a surprise, far mot than most C-segment cars and close to the tall-boy Santro.

    The Getz’s design has just the right amount of originality, conservatism and strong detailing to please almost everyone. A design that uses bold lines and clean strokes, the cab-forward hatch with its rectangular lights and large, raked windscreen looks almost MPV-like in profile, given character by the pronounced wheel arches and stylish slash along the flanks.

    The fit-looking rear is terrific, the play of surfaces and shapes making it appear particularly sporty. The chassis is boarding-stiff, high tensile steel making up for as much as 58 percent of the body of the car. It’s a fairly conventional design for the rest, a transverse-mounted engine driving the front wheels, and there are independent MacPherson struts in front, but the rear wheels use a non-independent torsion bar.

    The Mahindra XUV 300 facelift will be called the XUV 3XO. Should more brands rename models for facelifts?

    Yes, it could give new life to a slow-selling car



    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
