The all-new Hyundai Santro has been launched in India, with prices starting at Rs 3.90 lakh for the base, Dlite version. The Santro is easily the most popular car from Hyundai in India and in fact was the very car that made the Korean manufacturer a household name. Interestingly, the new Hyundai Santro has been launched just a little over 20 years since the original was launched, back in September 1998. Needless to say Hyundai hopes the new Santro will repeat the success of its original and will do well as an entry-level family hatchback.

The new Santro is powered by a heavily reworked version of the 1.1-litre, four-cylinder Epsilon petrol engine that powered the last Santro Xing and offers 69PS and 99Nm in its current guise. The new Santro also debuts AMT technology for Hyundai and is available with the option of a five-speed AMT, apart from a five-speed manual gearbox. You also have the option of going in for a factory-fitted CNG kit which brings outputs down to 58PS and 84Nm. Claimed top speed is 150kmph while claimed fuel efficiency is 20.3kmpl. Suspension duties are taken care of by McPherson struts upfront and torsion beams at the rear. Lower variants run on 13 inch wheels, while higher ones run on 14 inch rims.

More importantly, the new Santro is based on an all-new platform that has helped Hyundai make the car larger in size as compared to the original, which translates to more space inside. In fact, legroom, kneeroom, headroom and shoulder room in the new Santro are among the highest in class.

On the equipment front the new Hyundai Santro gets a touchscreen audio system integrating Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity on the top variant (Asta), as also a reverse camera. There's rear air-conditioning vents as well, a segment first. Safety features include ABS and driver's airbag as standard, while the higher variants are equipped with front passenger airbags as well.
The new Hyundai Santro competes against names like the Tata Tiago and Maruti Suzuki Celerio, as also the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R and thus sits above the Hyundai Eon that it replaces in the Korean manufacturer's product line-up. In case you haven't read yet, here's our first impressions of the car. OVERDRIVE will also be driving the new Santro extensively, so stay tuned for a more detailed review on Friday, October 26.
