Hyundai Santro

Two months of easy put­ter­ing around

IT’S FI­NALLY HERE,” SAID ev­ery­one at the evo In­dia HQ and the Santro keys have been go­ing around the of­fice like mu­si­cal chairs. In the last two months, the pretty lit­tle Hyundai has been on the field dur­ing ev­ery god­damn pho­to­shoot. Be­ing a scooter guy, I love to fil­ter through traf­fic and thank­fully, the Santro is no dif­fer­ent. I mean, it’s not so small, ob­vi­ously but it’s just per­fect for city con­di­tions. The gear­ing too has been op­ti­mised for com­mut­ing, es­pe­cially the first and sec­ond cog. And if you’re cruis­ing around, third gear is all you need for speeds as low as 20kmph, all the way to 80kmph. I was also sur­prised to no­tice that it had enough space to carry four on board along with the auto journo essen­tials. Read cam­era equip­ment, drones, hel­mets, rid­ing gear and what not. The seats though lack cush­ion­ing, re­sult­ing in a sore butt on longer drives. But the rear seat is a pho­tog­ra­pher’s wet dream. Fold the bench and you have enough space to house one tal­ented shut­ter­bug safely. The smooth fu­elling also al­lows for con­trolled out­puts, re­sult­ing in bril­liant shots you see on these pages. The boot lip helps as well. With so much go­ing for it, I am not sur­prised when the sales fig­ures break records in the com­ing months. Buy­ing one for your­self? Do it right away and avoid the queues, as much as pos­si­ble. ⌧
