Getz, Accent adds sports pack

2008-02-08 07:11
Hyundai South Africa has introduced sports derivatives to its smaller passenger car offerings in the form of an SR performance pack.

Hoping it will appeal to the younger set, the SR is now offered on the petrol Getz and Accent sedan and hatchback models.

Getz SR and sedan Accent SR gain front and side skirts, a rear spoiler and 15-inch alloy wheels.

The Accent hatch, which already comes standard with a tailgate spoiler and alloy wheels, gains front and rear side skirts.

"Even before we launched the Getz, Accent Sedan and Accent Hatch, we knew the vehicles had the potential for this type of enhancement," said Stanley Anderson, marketing and aftersales director at Hyundai South Africa.

"Their lines lend themselves to being enhanced with the addition of a professionally designed body kit." The body kits are supplied by AK Sport.

"Our customers often enhance the look of their vehicles based on their personal preference," said Anderson.

"Unfortunately there are a number of kits on the market that are of sub-standard quality, but with the SR range we ensure that the customer receives a premium finished product. AK Sport brings with it years of experience in this field. The parts are of the highest quality and the fitment is done by skilled technicians."

All three SR derivatives come with Hyundai's five-year/150 000 km manufacturer's warranty.


Getz 1.4 SR - R124 900
Accent 1.6 SR - R139 400
Accent Hatch SR - R149 900
