The 2018 Santro is a blend between the typical tallboy design on the first gen car and the wider more traditional hatchback design on the Grand i10. Slotting in between the entry level Hyundai Eon and the recently facelifted Hyundai Grand i10, the new Santro will bring a host of features like a touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and rear AC vents. The new car is quite distinctive in the way it looks too with a very defined profile, a wide (almost grin like) front end but a rather simple rear. There are no alloy wheels, no projector headlamps and no LED daytime running lights on offer.
Under the hood, the new Hyundai Santro features a 1.1-litre Epsilon series engine that makes 68 bhp of peak power and 99 Nm of peak torque. Also offered from the factory is either a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 5-speed AMT unit. The manual gearbox version is rated 20.3 kmpl. Hyundai will also offer a CNG unit of the new Santro with the same engine. The engine, while running on CNG, will be rated at 58 bhp. The all-new Santro features 14-inch steel wheels with 165/70 R14 tyres.
