All new Santro makes a grand de­but

Auto Today - - Update! -

HYUNDAI BRINGS back the Santro in In­dia in a brand new avatar, along with seg­ment first fea­tures and much more. Built on the K1 plat­form, the new Santro looks sharper than the Eon, but grows in di­men­sion and is 45 mm longer. De­sign wise, it gets Hyundai’s ‘cas­cad­ing’ grille on the front bumper, a pair of neat fog lamps which sports ‘V’ shape. The head­lights and badge move to the top of the bon­net, and this has re­sulted in a sporty look. The cabin is well fin­ished and gen­er­ously ap­pointed. It gets a dual-tone beigeon-black themed dash. The in­stru­ment clus­ter is nicely fin­ished and houses a speedo in the mid­dle, flanked by an rpm me­ter and a multi-info dis­play. The 7.0-inch touch­screen gives the Santro a pre­mium feel and gets apps like An­droid Auto, Ap­ple CarPlay, Mir­ror Link and even Voice Recog­ni­tion. The Santro comes with a 1.1-litre, four-cylin­der petrol en­gine that de­vel­ops 68 bhp and 99 Nm of peak torque, mated to a five-speed gear­box. The Santro also gets the op­tion of an AMT gear­box. There will be also a CNG op­tion on of­fer.
