So here is a quick look at what the CNG version of the Hyundai Santro will offer. But before any more details, here are the Hyundai Santro Prices for the CNG variant. The entry level variant on the Santro CNG will be the mid-level Magna priced at Rs 5.23 lakh while the most expensive Santro CNG will be the Sportz variant priced at Rs 5.64 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

Incidentally, even before launch, the new Hyundai Santro bookings have already crossed 23,500 units and are expected to increase especially after people see the car in person in showrooms.
