Geneva:Hoping to turn the tables on Japanese rival Maruti Suzuki’s Swift, Korean car major Hyundai will launch a new version of its premium hatchback Getz under a new name Getz Prime by the end of this month in India.
“This model will be both for the export and domestic market. While it will retain the name Getz for exports to the European market, we will launch it as Getz Prime in the domestic market,” Hyundai Motor India Ltd managing director H.S. Lheem said here. He said the Getz Prime will come in two petrol engine variants of 1.1 litre and 1.3 litre, enabling it to partly qualify for the benefit of excise duty benefit on small cars.
