Hyundai is all set to re-launch their popular Santro hatchback in India, in a completely different Avatar. It will replace their ageing i10 in the country, which means that the car won’t be placed in entry level space. Details about the new Santro are still limited and we will update this page as and when they are available.
2018 Hyundai Santro details in short
|Price||Rs. 4 lakhs|
|Launch date||Mid 2017|
|Engine options||1, Petrol|
2018 Hyundai Santro Exterior and Interior
The tall boy stance that the previous generation Hyundai Santro had will be replaced by a design more fitting with time. It will be a much younger and sleeker car, and could borrow some SUV/Crossover styling, after the huge success of Renault’s Kwid in the country. This will also bode well with Hyundai new marketing strategy of bringing small volume, premium cars initially (Santa Fe, Elantra) and then launching smaller ones based on them (Creta and Verna) to pique customer interest.
A Hyundai Creta inspired small car will definitely go a long way in the segment.
Interiors will also be new and the car will be rich in features.
2018 Hyundai Santro Engine, Transmission, Mileage
Though exact details are not available yet, the new Santro is said to come exclusively with an upgraded version of the company’s 1.0-litre Kappa three-cylinder petrol engine. This mill is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and produces 69 PS currently. An AMT model could also be provided.
Slight improvement in mileage is also to be expected.
