The Santro will be available with both manual transmission and AMT and there will be a CNG option as well
The new Hyundai Santro will be launched in India later in the day today. Hyundai has been accepting bookings for the hatchback since 10 October, 2018 for a sum of Rs 11,100.
The Santro will be the first Hyundai in India to sport an AMT. The 5-speed AMT will be on offer on 2 variants - Magna and Sportz. AMT will not be available in top-spec Santro to start with. In all, there will be 5 variants on offer -- Dlite, Era, Magna, Sportz and Asta.
The Santro is expected to come with a few segment first features. The most important of the lot will be the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Knowing Hyundai, we can expect the unit to feel premium and be easy to use. Other segment first’s will be, a rear view parking camera and rear AC vents. Hyundai has already revealed that the Santro will get ABS and driver-side airbag as standard features.
Prices for the new Santro are expected to start from Rs 3.75 lakh. We expect the top-spec Santro to cost over Rs 5 lakh.
