Hyundai Santro Highlights
We’ve all known the Hyundai Santro as a name that’s had a lot of history riding on it over the last the 16 years – especially given how well established a marque Hyundai is in India. Such unforeseen success from a once unheard-of brand making its foray into the market with a small car; ringing the bells of success was bound to set an inspiration among upcoming global players: the Santro’s sales numbers are testimony to that. Of course, the design wasn’t to everyone’s taste, but there’s no denying the fact the Santro has played a key role in making Hyundai the brand it is today in our market. Even in recent years, as the second-largest car-maker here, the Eon somehow didn’t turn out as fruitful an offering – so the dire need of filling up this segment was once again felt.
After months of being spoken of and spotted testing as a mule, the new Santro gets a new avatar. Having driven it, we can say that first impressions are positive. Based on the now discontinued i10, it gets the 1.1-litre petrol engine, currently the only motor on offer – remains more-or-less the same unit, but with notable tweaks to make it more efficient and to also help the engine meet the BS VI norms that come into effect in April 2020.
Up-front, the grille is wide and looks like a smile plastered across. The rear boasts of a simplistic design approach. The side profile sports some elements that may be subjective, but the large glasshouse adds to a roomier feeling inside the cabin; there are also creases running along the fenders and front doors. The new car stands true to its ‘tall-boy’ design, and sits on 165/70R 14 steel wheels with a stylish wheel cap design. Also, it is 45mm longer than the old Santro with an overall length of 3610mm.
The 2018 Hyundai Santro variants are as follows: D-Lite, Era, Magna, Sportz and Asta. The top-end Asta variant comes loaded with features like front and rear power windows, a rear wash-wiper, remote keyless entry, rear defogger, electrically-adjustable ORVMs, rear parking sensors, and a seat belt pretensioner while ABS with EBD and a driver-side airbag come standard on the new model.
The design on the inside is well-finished, in typical Hyundai fashion. Placed in a similar position as the i10, the gear-shift is within convenient reach. A host of features include a segment-first 17.64cm Touchscreen Audio Video System with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Link connectivity that also boasts of voice-recognition and ‘iblue’ smartphone app support, while the same screen doubles up into a display for the rear parking cameras (new to the segment), rear AC vents (another segment-first) and dual front airbags for loaded models. There’s ample amount of room scooped out for the occupants inside as well.
Engine Specifications & Performance
The new Hyundai Santro is powered by a 1.1-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 68bhp and 99Nm of torque, with a new 5-speed manual transmission allied it. However, making its debut for the first time, is the in-house produced Smart Auto AMT gearbox that will solely be offered only on the Magna and Sportz variants. A CNG-powered variant will be available too – for those against the rising petrol prices, with power rated at 59bhp. Steering feedback is surprisingly good, while the reworked version of the i10’s manual ‘box works well, but it’s the AMT that feels like a huge step forward in this segment – in fact, the best by far. The 1.1-litre motor is peppy and refined, both.
The 2018 Hyundai Santro’s ARAI-certified fuel-economy figures are rated at 20.3kpl for the petrol MT and AMT models, while the CNG variant is the most frugal at 30.48km/kg.
For now, introductory prices have been announced for the first 50,000 customers. The Hyundai Santro model price starts from ₹ 3.89 lakh for the base D-Lite variant; followed by the Era at Rs ₹ 4.24 lakh; the Magna at ₹ 4.57 lakh; the Sportz at ₹ 4.99 lakh and the Hyundai Santro top model price is pegged at ₹ 5.45 lakh (Asta variant) – all prices belong to that of the manual models. The AMT is made available in two variants: Magna at ₹ 5.18 lakh and the Sportz at ₹ 5.46 lakh, while the CNG model shares the same variants as the automatic, but is priced at ₹ 5.23 lakh, and ₹ 5.64 lakh respectively.
