About New Hyundai Santro

It was during the Hyundai Tucson drive last year that we informed you that the South Korean car-maker will bring back the popular Santro to India. Now we have confirmation that Hyundai will launch the all new Santro by end-2018 and it could be showcased at the Auto Expo 2018. Launched in 1998, the Santro quickly became a household name and helped Hyundai make a name for itself in the Indian market. Sadly, the iconic small car was discontinued in 2014 after 16 glorious years.

New Hyundai Santro Preview

Hyundai is gearing up to revive the Santro nameplate with an all-new car. There is a chance that we'll see the car at the 2018 Auto Expo in February and a launch soon after. Upon launch, it will rival the likes of Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Renault Kwid, and Tata Tiago. We expect to see a 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre engine options, possibly the same petrol mills that the i10 used to offer. Transmission duties to be carried out by a 5-Speed manual gearbox and Hyundai might also consider offering an AMT option, seeing the growing demand for an automatic option in entry-level cars in India.
