Spied testing its brake systems is 2009 Hyundai i20 3-door, Getz successor.

At the stroke of Paris Motor Show we can officially say goodbye Getz. New spy pics of the Hyundai i20 3-door have surfaced, giving us a much better view of its behind. Getz is quite long in the tooth now, matter of fact it’s a whole six years long. It was time for a farewell. Liked universally for its cute compact shape and good driving characteristics, the Getz won over many a heart all over the world, especially with those of the female kind.

At Paris it will be the 5-door that takes the stand, commencing sales about Q1, 2009 and the 3-door will appear six months thereafter. Engines are two petrol-powered ones at 80 bhp and 109 bhp, with that impressive turbo diesel pushing out 110 bhp, plus an automatic option.
