    What's the point of having heated side mirrors in the Philippines? Automatic folding side mirrors are much more useful.
    • LACOSTER Feb 07 2013 @ 04:32pm
      Its not like they are going to spend money changing that feature just because our small market doesnt need it. You'd be dead without it in -30 degree winters in Canada where this car is also sold. Our Subaru Outback and Pajero has heated seats even though we don't need them (they are fun for pranks though)
      • focusjohann Feb 07 2013 @ 10:11pm
        I agree with you there about the heated seats. But as you can see, the lower variant doesn't have the heated mirrors, which means it is purposely added as a premium feature in the higher model (which imo we don't really need) para lang masabi na loaded ang unit. And of course the more options you add, the more things you have to pay for repair just in case it mess up.
    • Benzmizer Feb 07 2013 @ 04:45pm
      Sa bukid talaga di kailangan nun. Pero sa amin dito sa Cuidad, kailangan nun. =)
    • Feeter Silverster Feb 07 2013 @ 09:38pm
      useful din yan, pag heated side mirror eh hindi syang matatagalang basa lalo na pag maulan
    • focusjohann Feb 07 2013 @ 10:01pm
      I agree with you there bud, i don't think its neccesary to install those heated side mirrors. Even during heavy rains we don't get our mirrors really fogged up.
    • noelneilm Feb 09 2013 @ 01:12am
      That feature would be very welcome for those in Baguio.
    • noelneilm Feb 09 2013 @ 01:15am
      For those in Baguio, that feature would be most welcome.
  • rdjl_13 Feb 07 2013 @ 04:28pm
    Pwede! :D
  • GotToRead Feb 07 2013 @ 04:33pm
    Pasok na pasok to sa mga pamilyang nagsisimula pa lang at taxi fleet :)
  • LACOSTER Feb 07 2013 @ 04:33pm
    YES! more hatchbacks in the market!

    come on Golf.......im waiting.......
  • TingMatic Feb 07 2013 @ 05:00pm
    Hyundai got it right this time. Am sure the CRDi matic variant will sell a lot of units! It will eat up the market of Yaris and Jazz.
    • the 8th Feb 07 2013 @ 05:13pm
      Well for one, wala naman market ang Yaris. Mas marami pang benta ang Swift, at lalo na ang Fiesta and Rio. But I would agree with you na delikado ang mga B-segment hatchbacks ngayon dahil maganda ang presyo ng accent. I just wonder if they (HARI) can keep up with the demand.
  • robin_micmac Feb 07 2013 @ 05:12pm
    i would say its well priced...bang for the buck...hopefully not much backlogs on unit delivery
  • The Stig Feb 07 2013 @ 05:17pm
    nice. diesel. are hyundai's diesel engine reliable? dami kasing angal sa starex.
    • TingMatic Feb 07 2013 @ 05:53pm
      Yap plus it carries a 5 year or 100,000 kms whichever comes first warranty. This warranty is even better than Japanese brand cars.
      • robin_micmac Feb 07 2013 @ 06:03pm
        it maybe 5 years but its still 100,000kms. major powertrain components are designed with life in terms of mileage rather than years of service.. rule of thumb for car manufacturers for warranty sign off is 10 years or 100,000miles.
      • Mr. McMahon Feb 07 2013 @ 07:07pm
        every 6 months 10,000 kms. & every year 20,000 kms.
    • Feeter Silverster Feb 07 2013 @ 09:45pm
      Yes stig, ok ang engine ng Hyundai. Kung magka problem man, its bec of faulty driving or improper maintenance. I have an old Starex and no engine problem.
  • raymondbzamora Feb 07 2013 @ 05:21pm
    Mazda at Ford pa rin ang bibilhin ko na sasakyan...
    • TingMatic Feb 07 2013 @ 05:41pm
      That's the beauty of having the Power of Choice!
    • Mr. McMahon Feb 07 2013 @ 07:08pm
      the Mazda Vehicles in Euro 2 Compliant.
    • FanBoy Feb 12 2013 @ 06:54pm
      Being a Ford man myself, I think it is unfair to say this things here. :)
      • raymondbzamora Feb 12 2013 @ 07:26pm
        I know and felt sorry for that...
    • eaaguilar2013 6 months ago
      but if you are looking for an elegant and yet better performance, I would suggest the Hyundai product is good plus 5yrs warranty and modern design...
  • TingMatic Feb 07 2013 @ 05:43pm
    Diesel engines and Hybrids are the way to go!
    • focusjohann Feb 07 2013 @ 10:16pm
      Problems with Diesel Engines (with recently equipped vgt) they are of high maintenance compared to petrol engines (every 5k km interval vs 10k km). About hybrid cars they are expensive to buy and more over to maintain.
  • rpal Feb 07 2013 @ 05:54pm
    please don't use it as a taxi. the vios is enough to be a taxi, a beautiful hatch doesn't need to be
    • FanBoy Feb 12 2013 @ 06:55pm
      Whichever puts the boat afloat. If a diesel hatch would suffice a taxi fleet for economic purpose, why not? :)
  • hajabah Feb 07 2013 @ 06:06pm
    M/T variants = Bad Luck Brian with regards to standard equipment.
    • John Rigor Feb 07 2013 @ 10:08pm
      It's okay. The money you save on fuel could go to modifications. :))
  • jigsaw Feb 07 2013 @ 06:18pm
    Bili bili na kayo mga guinea pigs. Tapos update nyo kami :)
  • hopeless Feb 07 2013 @ 07:20pm
    Sana dual airbags na rin yung M/T variant. 'Yun lang sa tingin ko ang mali, the rest madali na or hindi na kailangan. Hatch diesel 6 m/t good pricing = :)
  • chongky Feb 07 2013 @ 08:03pm
    wow, cheaper than i expected. Hope they will bring the new i30 also. Why doesn't these car makers bring in two-door hatch?? they look so much better! LIke focus, fiesta, the hatchback looks so much better when two-door
  • dsobreo Feb 07 2013 @ 08:07pm
    Bakit walang Apple Green? T-T
    • Feeter Silverster Feb 07 2013 @ 09:40pm
      nasa supermarket Dom ang green apple, hahaha
      • dsobreo Feb 08 2013 @ 11:25am
        hahaha like ko kasi yung ganung color =(
  • dsobreo Feb 07 2013 @ 08:10pm
    Actually mas cheaper pa yung unang price nya, 748k for manual and 838k for matic, ewan ko lang bakit nagkaroon ng last minute changes sa pricing... Tsk sayang naman
  • 17Sphynx17 Feb 07 2013 @ 08:40pm
    Pricing is surprising to me but in a very good way.

    The first gen Diesel Hyundai getz CRDi that I recall we got in our shores was around 720k already. This is significantly larger than that. And the i30 is price at 1m php. This is definitely a very welcome surprise in this segment.
  • John Rigor Feb 07 2013 @ 10:12pm
    126hp diesel engine, 1.1 ton weight, 6 speed manual. Damn, this is going to be a very fast car.
  • windel Feb 07 2013 @ 11:30pm
    Ford focus diesel hatch na lang ako.
  • bruce Feb 08 2013 @ 12:15am
    nice pricing!
  • racso257 Feb 08 2013 @ 10:30am
    You got a winner here Hyundai! 6 speed manual transmission, 1.6L CRDI VGT engine, and most importantly front and rear disc brakes na rin unlike ng mga ibang sub compact! Lagyan na lang ng optional na fog lamps at 17-18 in. rims! Ayus na! Mas pipiliin ko ito sa kesa sa 1.6L na 5 Speed M/T Lancer EX GLX o 1.6L na 5 Speed M/T Focus! Maraming iiwanan 'to sa expressway! This is my number one choice pag dating sa mga subcompact! Next time pag pinalitan ko na yung 1.8L M/T focus ko ito ang bibilin ko! Gusto ko kulay black!!! Nice one Hyundai!!!=)
    • focusjohann Feb 11 2013 @ 12:53am
      Ang iiwanan mo lang sa expressway for sure ay ung mga sumusunod sa speed limit at saka mga naghahabol ng fuel consumption.
    • FanBoy Feb 12 2013 @ 06:59pm
      Iiwan sa highway? hmmm, Does my Impreza would suffice such challenge?

      Focus or Lancer, as your level of comprehension is concerned, would still get into the end first, IF THAT would be the selling point that you are looking for.
  • neutral Feb 08 2013 @ 11:25am
    Affordable price is what Hyundai is known for. Hyundai must stick to its policy that its pricing is more affordable than its competitors, be it a Japanese, American or European.
  • gundam Feb 08 2013 @ 12:13pm
    Meron ba nito sa gray market?
  • bugslife71 Feb 08 2013 @ 12:22pm
    I hope they come up with a gasoline engine for this?
  • alxnd21 Feb 08 2013 @ 12:31pm
    Nice one Hyundai... I am sure magiging 1# costumer ninyo ulit ang mga Taxi Operators and Rent Company dahil sa Diesel at Fuel Efficient siya.

    Especially the Taxi Driver can save more on their income than using gasoline fueled taxi car.

    And It can contribute to our environment friendly, acceleration and great power because of the VGT Turbo power in the Engine.


    Hehehehehe
    • lantraluvr Feb 08 2013 @ 04:46pm
      Not so good for the operator. I've seen taxi drivers top up their Accent Diesel's motor oil with some SAE40 API CC crud. Good bye, nice, efficient, advanced engine. Hello, overhauling.

      Someone has to teach the taxi people the proper maintenance for this car if this gets bought by the cavan again.
    • noelneilm Feb 09 2013 @ 01:02am
      More income for taxi drivers? Well, not really. If the operator sees that the car is fuel efficient, he adjusts the boundary upward. So, more income for the operator, not the driver. hehe.
    • FanBoy Feb 12 2013 @ 07:00pm
      Taxi fleets would love this. Please do not take this as an offense, but Diesels are very good alternatives.
  • meki71 Feb 08 2013 @ 12:58pm
    Ayos ang pricing nila ngayon! Considering ung i30 nila e umabot ng 1M. At sana wag naman nilang gawing taxi!!!
  • brylle Feb 08 2013 @ 01:46pm
    With this specs & price its a good deal indeed. For everyday travel - school, office, grocery, church, malling etc. I will include this in my shortlist. Good job Hyundai!
    • PanotAko Feb 08 2013 @ 10:01pm
      Wew. Even with your own reasons, it's not gonna be practical, considering that once the engine becomes defective and you're planning to fix it, you're gonna end up spending more than ten thousand pesos for this thing.
      • 17Sphynx17 Feb 09 2013 @ 09:58am
        No one told you to run your Getz at 170kph right? And baka asa iyo din yung mali kung bakit nasira, like I don't know, not giving time for the turbo to cool down before turning off the engine given na tinakbo mo siya ng 170kph according to your post?

        Asa alaga din kasi naman yan at hindi mo ituturo lahat sa iba nung ikaw mismo nagdala sa kotse mo sa sitwasyong iyon diba?
  • warak1422 Feb 08 2013 @ 02:49pm
    126Hp/260Nm??? Tapos 6MT/4AT??? WEIRD...
    • PanotAko Feb 08 2013 @ 09:57pm
      Haha mahina auto nyan :)
  • lantraluvr Feb 08 2013 @ 04:50pm
    I wish this was made available two years ago when I was on the market for a daily driver. But anyway, ended up with something similar to the Accent hatch. The Kia Carens is a bit big and porky, but it is CRDi and with a 6-spd stick, and isn't so far off in price back then to this Accent. Still happy.
  • GTi Feb 08 2013 @ 05:51pm
    Price seems fair enough... Quite competitive, actually.
  • PanotAko Feb 08 2013 @ 09:56pm
    Heh good luck na lang sa mga bibili neto. May Hyundai Getz kami na 1.5 crdi dati, ang lakas at matipid. Pero nung pinaandar siya hanggang 170kph, nasisira na ang turbo. At ano ang nangyayare? Minsan tumotopak ang makina, at dahil dun, gumasta pa kami ng dalampung libo para mapaayos lang. Kaya siguro, ganun din yan. Matipid sa una, pero sa huli, gagastos ka para mapaayos lang. Diyan mahilig ang Hyundai.
    • spragadudio Feb 09 2013 @ 12:26pm
      @Panotako, correct ka dyan. Sa totoo lang ang Maintenance too expensive. Meron ngang 5 years warranty tatagain naman sa maintenance costs. :(
      • 17Sphynx17 Feb 12 2013 @ 08:09pm
        Magkano ba yung mahal na PMS costs na sinasabi mo?

        If galing ka sa petrol car lang, talagang magugulat ka siguru first time mo magpa-PMS. Pero common knowledge na mataas ang maintenance costs ng mga CRDI diesels compared sa petrol engines, kahit GDI pa yun.

        Kaya nga you have to weigh din if you can offset fuel savings with the regular PMS dahil sa petrol cars, kahit every 10k PMS pwede, pero sa mga CRDi, medyo every 5k talaga parang obligado ka pumasok dahil sa poor quality diesel natin. If gusto mo naman gamble na every 10k, asa sa iyo, but don't complain kung magkaproblem din later on.

        It's not the manufacturers fault nor the distributors na if you didn't do your homework.
    • focusjohann Feb 11 2013 @ 12:48am
      Lol! As in lol! Do you know the risks of driving that fast with that car? Kahit sabihin natin you opted for bigger wheels and bigger brakes. Im sure nasa limit na lahat ng pyesa mo. Tires mo, high rev ka pa on a diesel engine, and much more ung preno mo. Did you know that as you increase your rev, the more exhaust gas you produce meaning your spooling the turbo for a long time. At para sa isang city car. Hindi sya sanay sa ganun. So its definitely not the cars fault.
    • lantraluvr Feb 13 2013 @ 06:09pm
      Turbos get broken due to a multitude of factors, but most commonly due to poor-quality motor oil. You must not be either changing oil frequently or using a substandard motor oil if your turbo experiences coking.

      We have a Getz CRDi too, and the only major problem after 80,000km as far as the engine is concerned is the EGR valve needing cleaning.
  • noelneilm Feb 09 2013 @ 01:09am
    I wonder why TGP's power ratings are different from the actual specs. 126hp v. 128hp. I noticed some discrepancies in TGP's buyers' guide too for other cars.
  • dragun Feb 09 2013 @ 02:15am
    No wonder this looked familiar, James May arrived at the TopGear test track on Season 18 Ep 3 in the same color car.
  • leo222 Feb 09 2013 @ 02:37am
    Does the above mentioned difference in features really costs 100K? I'd say go for the manual.
  • FadeAwayDunk Feb 09 2013 @ 09:29am
    Nice one Hyundai! Matipid at practical

    Sana lahat ng taxi, hatchback na lang para magkasya naman kaming mga 6 footers sa 2nd row at para makabawas traffic dahil mas maiksi compared sa sedan? hmm...

  • spragadudio Feb 09 2013 @ 12:14pm
    *oor quality car. maintenance is too too expensive :(
  • So-on-and-so Feb 11 2013 @ 05:40am
    I bought mine last friday, the AT 1.6. Its a great car, the problem is I wasn't satisfied with the audio unit. Its a simple 1-din JVC na parang pang taxi lang :( Did anybody get the same or was it just me. I ask the dealer where i bought it, sabi nila un daw tlga ksama, ang layo doon sa picture na nkita d2. Mas mganda pa audio unit ng fiesta, rio, vios!!! grrhhhhh.. I was excited kc buying it only to realize I didnt get my moneys worth.
  • benj420 Feb 11 2013 @ 03:53pm
    This will definitely sell. Perfect strategy for Hyundai.
  • So-on-and-so Feb 12 2013 @ 07:32pm
    (Your thoughts on the article...)
  • twenk123 Feb 14 2013 @ 08:49am
    Anu kaya ang actual na 0-60-100kph time nito?

    Baka pareho lang sa Getz 1.4 ko.
  • spurs20 Feb 25 2013 @ 12:29am
    what's the actual fuel consumption (city driving) on the AT and MT variants?!
    14 km/ltr?!
    12 km/ltr?!
    10 km/ltr?!
  • mygarage Apr 04 2013 @ 09:25pm
    hyundai diesel engines maganda technology. lalo na with vgt. pero talagang mahal lang ang maintenance and parts, pati sa availability ng parts medjo problema din. and sana in the near future magkaron ng improvement mga suspensions nila.
