The all-new Hyundai Santro is being launched in India shortly and is easily the most important car to get launched in 2018. The original Santro was the most successful car for Hyundai and in fact it was the very car that made the brand popular with small car buyers, particularly middle-class families. Hyundai is hoping the new car will repeat the success of the original and has equipped the new generation Santro with a host of features, including a touchscreen audio system offering Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, reverse camera, steering mounted audio controls and more. It is powered by a 1.1-litre petrol engine and gets the option of a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT gearbox too. Here are the live updates from the launch event that's happening in New Delhi. Stay tuned!

    Speaking of safety, the Santro gets ABS and driver side airbag as a standard fit. Higher trims will offer a front passenger airbag too.

    The driver's seat isn't adjustable for height and the steering can't be adjusted for reach.

    Hyundai claims to have tested the Santro extensively for frontal and side impact collisions and assure that it has the best in class cabin safety.

    To that effect, up to 63% of the chassis is made from high strength steels.

    It's the same infotainment system as the Grand i10 and sounds equally great.

    Hyundai continues to use its favourite black and beige combination in the Santro as well

     the carmaker says that the design of the centre console is inspired from the face of an elephant.

    There is no chrome garnish anywhere in the car.

    The Santro doesn't get keyless go or climate control.

    The air conditioner features a 135cc compressor and there is a set of rear A/C vents too

    The Santro will be available in five variants-Dlite, Era, Magna, Sportz and Asta. The first three variants will be offered in the petrol MT configuration while the Magna and Sportz will get CNG MT and Petrol AMT powertrain options as well.

    We recently spoke to Mr YK Koo on the new Hyundai Santro. See what he ahd to say below

  • Oct 23, 11:25 AM (IST)

    The Hyundai Santro is set to be a big success in India. It has already received over 14,000 bookings since pre-orders began.

    The tailgate has a very sober design to it.

    The squarish taillights are functional and their small proportions allow for a large tailgate and rear windshield.

    There is no rear fog lamp, but two reflective strips and a dual-tone theme make sure that the rear bumper doesn't look drab.

    The Santro sits on 14-inch wheels that look surprisingly proportionate despite their small diameter and that is thanks to the well-proportioned wheel arches and a large glasshouse.

  • Oct 23, 11:19 AM (IST)

    More on the Santro's styling:

    The grille integrates two large fog-lamps to mimic the face of the new generation of Hyundai SUVs.

    The top trims feature wing mirror mounted blinkers.

    Hyundai's designers have nicely managed to give the new Santro hints of the design theme that's being followed by their new generation of crossovers/SUVs like the Kona or the Santa Fe. The new cascading grille sits significantly lower than the bonnet, and there is no grille element between the Santro's single-pot headlights, making the bonnet and the nose longer than it is.
