    I bought the new Hyundai Santro Sportz AMT (Anniversary Edition) in December 2019. The anniversary edition was a great choice as it had reverse parking sensors, dual airbags and reverse parking camera as well which the normal Sportz variant didn't have at that time. Also in the exterior there are black roof rails, black door handles, black ORVM'S and greyish black wheel covers. The car has excelled in evey aspect except some. Now I would highlight some aspects and my verdict about them for this car. SAFETY- 3.5/5 as it has received a two-star NCAP rating. Still when you shut the doors you will feel that this car's build quality is good. Also you get dual airbags in Sportz AMT and Asta variants.COMFORT- 4/5 This is one of the main strong points of this car. You get many features for your comfort and convenience like Rear AC vents, Steering mounted audio and phone controls, 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, 4 speakers etc. Some features for easy driving like Rear parking Camera, Reverse Parking Sensors, Good Visibility, Rear defogger etc. The reason I gave 4/5 in comfort is because it lacks adjustable headrests in both rows, no height adjustable driver seat, no tilt steering.PERFORMANCE- 4.5/5 It is a great city car especially due to its AMT transmission option. However, driving enthusiasts would not be a big fan of this 1.1l 68 bhp, 99nm engine. You will not get that exta punch but the engine is just perfect for this car. The engine is very refined there is almost no engine noise or road noise as it is a 4 cylinder engine. The NVH levels are very low which is again a good point about this car.EXTERIOR- 4/5 Well it is definitely a good looking car but it somehow reminds us of the Grand i10 or Eon. No doubt it has some different looks than the i10 or Eon. But it has its own charm which is also a great point about this car.MILEAGE- 4.5/5 I live in Jammu where there isn't much traffic like in Delhi or Mumbai. I get a mileage between 13 kmpl and 14.5 kmpl in city. In highways it ranges between 15.5 kmpl and 17 kmpl.OVERALL VERDICTThe santro has retained its 22 years old legacy in India with this new generation santro. It definitely gets a spot in top 3 cars in the segment. It promises a comfortable ride for a family of four or even of five up to an extent with decent enough legroom and headroom and that rear ac vents which add up to the comfort of the car. It definitely has to gear up a thing or two like driver's comfort and pricing. But still it is a good enough package for anyone with a budget of less than 7.5 lakhs (on road price) and the santro has really impressed me too.

    Remove easily

    my evergreen CAr forever even I have Vw polo... it's amazing performance look and speed and disappointed about mileage... same as polo I have groom space and dashboard clearance views.. easier to drive in cities and traffic.. I have used car for 7 years.. I have did only 3 service.. for 47,000kms ... Even its seconds Santro I purchased it runs like two wheeler anywhere in cities.. I have driven karnataka tamilnadu states in my car.. tirupati.. very less Maintainence.. no sensor problems.. but polo I faced many problems once water s done for polo car entire sensors will stop working for changing senor it' costing very high price.. polo users are one who handle their car safely. you can see many polo cars on roads which doesn't have any scratches on cars and they are only one who gives the car on periodic services and service records can be seen on car instrument cluster shows entire things.. Cruz'e control available on polo automatic climate control changes electric mirror steering adjust seat height adjust arm rest cool cabin and good leg grooms and stylish look Aero dynamics are good for performance and stylish.. if sensors are maintained good without falling in water it can be good enough for maintainence... ground clearance s less but use the cars in towns and cities.. village users don't choose the cars.. use traffic less route and junk roads it may hit under chase.. use good roads to improve suspension... gear shifting and steering are quite good n good pickup.. mileage is about 14.7 1200 petrol engine.. better than Swift cars.. polo takes race swift cars easier ... swift is not used by professional business mans.. users don't buy swift cars it's all taxi drivers and travelers using cars.. Indica swift are not so surprised cars for own board users.. many yellow board cars are Swift cars.. so everyone hates swifts Every 6000-7000kms need to service.. spare parts are low strength on Maruti Suzuki.. body quality of swift is very very poor... bolts and nuts fateners are like local parts... see the bolt nuts fasteners in polo car it's heavy and design of nuts and bolts locks becoz it have holding s***p and threading holes... but holding strips for polo are good tightened it cant remove easily by spanners.. it need pneumatic gun to remove the screws in vw polo..

    Steering feedback

    Here's my impression after two and half years of usage and over 32000 km driven. I myself drive the car about 40 km almost daily. Pros:1. Good mileage. I drive modestly and don't rev the engine too much, too often and I get 17- 18 kmpl in the city without much traffic jam, in extremely dense traffic I get 12-14 kmpl and in highway always more than 20kmpl. these figures are MID readings, I didn't cross-check manually. 2. Nice feel-good features. To name a few, steering mounted controls, rear AC vent, day/ night IRVM, good infotainment system with Android auto, etc.3. Excellent fit and finish. The materials feel classy and upmarket.4. Smooth and efficient engine. Cabin noise and vibration are very low, gear shift and steering are buttery smooth. It's a breeze to drive.5. Great service network, low cost of maintenance, and good resale value.Cons: 1. Pathetic safety standard. Only 2 stars in the GNCAP crash test, the result came out six months after the purchase. Only driver-side airbag, even in the second top variant.2. Engine performance is ok in the city, but not powerful enough on highways.3. As the car is tall, it feels unstable over 90 kmph, also the steering feedback is not good and doesn't get stiff enough at high speeds.4. Price is on the higher side. In summary, it's a pricey entry-level car with compromised safety.

    Clutch pressed

    Getting a car in india is always special.In my case, I wanted to buy a beautiful new car for my parents.Spending hours of research, I finally closed santro sportz over tiago and celerio.My folks were extremely happy even though they were pushing me to get a second hand car only :) lets begin the customer experience from sales to after sales: i reached home after first free service.While reversing the car, I felt the clutch fell down or broke.I couldn't move the car and had to call the road side assitance (amazing service).But, Not a great feeling to send your new car by tow-truck in front of your neighbors.4 points bad customer service:1) they forced me to accept that i drive with clutch pressed.2) car was kept in service center for 3 weeks saying the crank shaft is broken and the part will come from korea.3) a welding was proposed on broken the crankshaft on a brand new car4) no temporary vehicle was offered to me even after escalating the issue to higher authorities as well.Finally, When i told them that keep the car and pay me daily compensation, They sent the car very next day.One year after above episode, Front glass has a crack.Service center says it can easily happen in winters:(overall i think it's a good looking, Feature packed car with driving comfort but pretty bad on quality and mileage.

    Rear speakers

    Prices of the BS6 Santro Hatchback would range from around 4.7 lakhs for the basic-spec model and 6.25 lakhs for top-spec variants. So this amounts to a price hike of about 22,000 to 27,000 depending upon the variant. Also, the Era Executive, Sportz, and Sportz AMT now are at a premium of Rs. 28000. However, the CNG variants remain unchanged. The new version will be powered by a 1.1 liter BS6 compliant Engine that produces the same output of about 69 bhp and 99nm torque.k The other features and safety kit will remain the same apart from transmission 5-speed manual Gearbox and an AMT unit. Features such as rear parking sensors, reverse camera, dual front airbags, and rear wiper/washer, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with the latest smartphone connectivity, front and rear speakers will be reserved for the top-end

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Santro

Q. How to improve the mileage of Hyundai Santro Sportz CNG?
  • In order to improve the mileage, we would suggest you drive slower. Driving fast can reduce your fuel efficiency by up to 33% if you are travelling above 60kmph. It is best to change gears appropriately and match the gear and the RPM carefully.
Q. What is the waiting period?
  • For the availability and the waiting period, we would suggest you to please connect with the nearest authorized dealer in your city as it depends on their stock book. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
Q. Is this car value for money?
  • Santro packs in a lot, it is simple and hassle-free to drive, and ticks all the right boxes, leaving very little to be desired. The little hatchback is perfectly suited to cruising around in the city all day and won’t even feel out of place on that weekend trip to the nearby hill station either. Hyundai Santro has a smooth engine, easy-to-drive, well-equipped top-end variant, interior quality from a class-above. Moreover, for a better understanding of performance and driving comfort, we would suggest you take a test drive. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.
More Questions
Q. Which car is best Wagon R CNG or Hyundai Santro CNG?
  • Both cars are good if you looking for better interior fit and finish and some amount of features santro is good but if your running is more wagon r is better option i think more reliable i know that service experience of MS is not good as hyundai
  • Santro sports cng is good in all aspect in terms of space, features and performance but its approximately 1lac expensive to wagon R lxi cng, moreover build quality is also good of santro so provides you with better safety, but fuel economy is less for santro sports cng as compared to wagorR lxi cng so make your decision accordingly, but santro is a clear winner if price is nor a barrier
  • Both the cars are great in comfort and mileage. if you want to opt for CNG, i would recommend go fo hyundai. because hyundai cars do not feel powerless when running on cng, on the other hand, maruti will feel powerless even on higher speeds. if you are looking a car to drive in city, go for hyndai. both the cars are highly reliable. so in terms of performance, hyundai is better

Q. What is the average per kg CNG in Wagon R and Santro?
  • It is monitored in pressure but cylinder is 55 wlc
  • Wagon R
  • 7o,75
Q. My budget is 6 lakh. Grand i10 Nios Era or Santro Sports which is a better choice?
  • You can go for NIOS, but after market OEM upgrades will be costly, however if you want to go for accessory upgrades like music system, fog lamps, etc... from local shops, then it will be a compromise on the quality. In Hyundai cars the OEM factory fitted are way better than the after market upgrades.Therefore choose wisely.
  • I think you should go for Santro Sportz because Grand i10 nios Era is the base model and you will have to spend a lot on aftermarket accesssories.
  • SANTRO SPORTZ ,ONCE DO TEST DRIVE AND FEEL IT
