Hyundai recently launched the next-gen Santro in the Indian market. With fresh new looks and more features, the new Hyundai Santro offers the choice of both, petrol and CNG powered engines.
The new-gen Hyundai Santro still retains its tall boy stance. The car features a blacked out cascading grille up front, which is surrounded with some chrome. The headlight units are all-new and are aided by fog lamps which are embedded into a blacked out insert. The all-new Santro rides on 13-inch wheels, however, even the top-spec variant doesn't offer alloy wheels. The car also gets a new set of body coloured ORVMs which are embedded with side indicators, along with body coloured door handles.
The all-new Hyundai Santro gets a decent looking profile at the back, which features redesigned taillights, a roof-mounted spoiler with an integrated stop light along with Hyundai badging on the tail-gate. Dimensionally, the Hyundai Santro is 3610 mm long, 1645 mm wide, 1560 mm tall and it has a wheelbase of 2400 mm. The new-gen Hyundai Santro is a modern looking small family car and has been immensely popular since launch.
On the inside, the new-gen Santro gets black and beige colour treatment for the upholstery. The centre console now features a touchscreen infotainment system, which is compatible with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Moreover, the centre console also employs switches to control the infotainment system, besides touch. The Hyundai Santro can comfortably accommodate 5-passengers at a time, as the cabin is quite roomy. The seats are cushioned well and offer a decent amount of side support and under-thigh support.
The centre console features AC vents which flank the infotainment display, whereas the ones on the mimic the design of an aircraft propeller which looks pretty upmarket. The car now gets a fresh looking instrument cluster which equips an analogue tachometer on the left, an analogue speedometer in the middle along with a digital display on the right, which provides information regarding time, distance, fuel and much more.
The Hyundai Santro employs safety features like a driver-side airbag, ABS with EBD and immobilizer as standard. The top-spec trim comes equipped with driver and passenger airbags, front fog lamps, rear parking sensors and camera, speed sensing door locks, Impact Sensing Auto Door Unlock and Front Seat Belt Pretensioner with Load Limiter.
The new-gen Santro derives power from a new, 1.1-litre, four-cylinder petrol unit that produces respective power and torque output of 69 ps at 5500 rpm and 99 Nm at 4500 rpm. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual and AMT transmission options. The Santro is also available with a 1.1-litre, CNG/petrol engine, which develops 58 ps of 5500 rpm and 84 Nm at 4500 rpm. Transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox on CNG variants.
The engine is quite efficient as it is rated for an economy figure of 20.3 Kmpl (petrol) and 30.48 Kmpl (CNG). The new-gen Santro is pretty much as zippy as its predecessor and the new motor scores high on refinement. The manual gearbox is one of the best in the segment and even the AMT, which is developed by Hyundai in-house, is very smooth and responds rather quickly to varying throttle inputs.
Hyundai Santro price starts from INR 3.89 Lakh to INR 5.65 Lakh.
