As Hyundai Santro readies for its big comeback, images of the production ready tallboy have surfaced from what looks like a Hyundai stockyard. The spyshots come just in time as folks await launch on October 23, 2018.
While the car is sufficiently wrapped, one gets a glimpse of the new Hyundai Santro interiors. New Santro cabin features a dual tone dashboard. The variant range includes CNG and AMT trims. Top variants feature a 7.0-inch touchscreen system compatible with MirrorLink, voice commands, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The screen’s flanked by AC vents on either side. Plenty of access buttons are found below the digital console screen, including the hazard light, AC and defogger button, with control knobs placed just below. Side AC vents are spider web-sy – looks very stylish.
In its newest tallboy rendition, Hyundai Santro is now curvier with definitive accent lines. Within Hyundai’s fluidic design lines is a new front grille, swept back headlamps and higher positioned fog lamps. Steady on 14” steel wheels, the rear design brings together a wide boot lid, large windscreen and new tail lamps.
Also leaked is the instrument panel. The simplistic instrument cluster features a tachometer and a speedometer. The multi info display (MID) displays important readings. A faux brushed-aluminium insert steering wheel houses audio and telephone controls.
With power coming from a 1.1-litre petrol engine that returns 69hp, transmission options include a 5-speed manual and AMT. First 50,000 bookings entail a special introductory price.
Thanks to a leaked price list by a Delhi dealer, it is now revealed that the new Santro will be offered in a total of five petrol transmission variants, two AMT variants and two CNG variants. Price ranges from Rs 3.87 lakhs to Rs 5.38 lakhs, ex-showroom. Once launched, it will compete with the likes of Maruti Celerio, WagonR, Tata Tiago, etc.
