The Hyundai Getz is a hatchback car that has been manufactured by the Korean auto company since 1992. It includes a stereo with CD player and AM/FM receiver. A range of aftermarket stereos is available, allowing users to upgrade their car stereos to ones with the most up-to-date features. An aftermarket radio can be installed in a Hyundai Getz by adapting the wiring and the housing to allow the radio to fit and function in the car.
