After a long wait finally Hyundai has re-launched the Santro in the country today. The original Santro was launched in 1998 and the car kick-started the operations for Hyundai Motors in India. Now after almost two decades the santro is back with all new platform, features and design. The new Hyundai hatchback will be available in five variant levels. Check out the specifications of the car below:


The new Santro has a sharper design just like all the modern designs adopted by Hyundai cars. The car has got a new cascading grille flanked by oversized fog lamps. There are upward-sweeping angular headlamps. It also has 14-inch steel wheels with wheel caps. Hyundai Santro also gets ORVMs with Led turn indicators and a Honda BR-V like kink that increases the glass area on the rear door windows. The back profile is much like Gran-i10 with stubby tail lamps and an Elantra facelift like dual tone bumper.

There are segment-first rear AC vents with a manual air conditioning system.


For the safety features, the Santro gets driver’s airbag along with ABS and EBD as standard across the variant lineup, while the top-spec Asta variant adds a passenger airbag as well.
