All new Santro makes a grand debut
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.
