Hyundai Santro Latest Updates

Hyundai has launched the BS6-compliant Santro in India. Prices are up by Rs 22,000 to Rs 27,000 depending on the variant, though prices for the Sportz and CNG models remain unchanged. As a result, the Santro now costs between Rs 4.57 lakh to Rs 5.79 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The same 69PS and 99Nm 1.1-litre petrol engine continues as before, but power figures and fuel economy may change slightly after the BS6 update.

The Santro scored a mediocre 2 stars for both adult and child occupant safety in the recent Global NCAP crash test. The protection offered for the 3-year old dummy was found to be poor, whereas for the 18-month-old CRS (Child Restraint System) it was good.

Hyundai Santro Price

Hyundai Santro prices start at Rs. 4.57 lakh for petrol and goes upto Rs. 5.98 lakh.

    I own a santro 1.1MT Era 2019 model. i decided not to go for a higher variant and customize the lower variant as per my needs. also i had a tight budget. I installed a sony touch screen system with reverse parking and apple car play compatibility. Also i installed fog lamps of the santro sports varient. as of now..i have clocked 10000+ kms in three months only. the car has a decent performance on highway and city as well on highway i have done a maximum of 133km/h approx. with minimal breaking and lesser clutch use and constant speeds...this is giving me a fuel efficiency of approx 24.5kmpl.. wich is more than expected. though this car is not as quick compared to its rivals such as celerio or swift... it is a very comfortable car and have an exellent amount of leg space of rear and front passenger as well...only thing i did not like about the car is the lack of power in lower gears. being a 4 cylinder car i expected more power at lower rpm"s. overall i am very happy with it.

    I purchased santro automatic in the month of November. Have been running it since then. The engine makes lot of noise and feels like an old engine. Not smooth, very jerky and the auto gear is pathetic, very poor. Very jerky ad it's a new one!? Overall not a good car. Have complained twice and sent back to the dealership for fault finding and correction, but no improvement

    My first Santro Xing arrived on 17.0212, my wedding day. After that I have used it a lot for commuting and touring, even on the worst roads.. it never let me down. The only problem was, even in the top variant, only the front glass were automatic while the rear were manual. And no parking sensors.

    I have Santro CNG sports ! Believe me it’s one of the best car ! It’s totally different inside and appears spacious with premium interiors ! I don’t know why people comparing 4 cylinder engine with 3 cylinder Tiago ! It’s AMT Variant is best in this segment !

    So, my quest for the modern, new age features car ends here. As a first time car buyer, I've dreamt of having all cool features which no car in this category was ready to give to the customers with in my budget. However,aftermarket accessories aren't too great.

    Maruti Suzuki WagonR Vs Hyundai Santro Vs Tata Tiago: Compact Hatch Comparison

    The WagonR sits between the most affordable cars of India and the more aspirational hatchback space. This segment has grown with the times and now features new players like the upmarket Santro and the feature-rich Tiago. Has Maruti added enough oomph to the WagonR to see it regain its crown?

Hyundai Santro Highlights

Compact, roomy, easy-to-drive. These three traits are as true for the current Santro as the original one we saw two decades back. Yes, Hyundai has cut a few corners, but it’s one of the most non-fussy cars you can get today.

Santro Specifications

With the Santro, Hyundai’s old workhorse - the 1.1-litre Epsilon engine - has made a comeback. This 4-cylinder engine is known to be reliable, refined and efficient. In petrol variants, it makes 69PS of power and 101Nm of torque. A factory-fit CNG kit is available as well, where the engine makes 59PS of power and 86Nm of torque. Pick the petrol and you get to choose between a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT. However, the CNG is offered with a 5-speed manual only. In our road test, the petrol-manual was happy to be frugal, returning 14.25kmpl in the city and 19.44kmpl on the highway. The AMT was no less efficient as it returned a similar 19.42kmpl on the highway, but took a tiny hit in efficiency inside the city with a figure of 13.78kmpl. It's easy-to-drive nature shines through, and the Santro makes for a good city companion.

Santro Variants

The Hyundai Santro variant list includes the D-Lite, Era, Magna, Sportz and Asta. We wouldn’t recommend any variant that does not have a minimum of two airbags, so our default choice here is the Asta. But, let’s take a quick tour of the other variants anyway.

Starting with the Santro D-Lite, this variant is quite barebones. It doesn’t even feature power windows or air-conditioning. For this money, you can look at better specced vehicles such as the Datsun GO. Move up to the Era and things are no different. You get an air-con and front power windows, but the rest of the package is the same. Skip.

It’s from the Magna variant onwards that the Santro actually feels like a hatchback launched in 2018. There’s chrome on the front grille, body coloured ORVMs, a 2-DIN audio system with Bluetooth. This is also the base variant if you’re buying the AMT or the CNG version. In the one below top Sportz variant, there are more goodies in the form of a touchscreen music system, steering-mounted audio controls, bigger 14-inch tyres, rear defogger and electrically-adjustable mirrors. If this had dual airbags, it’d be the variant we’d recommend.

In the top-spec Asta variant, you additionally get a reverse parking camera, front fog lamps and a rear wash/wipe. Did we mention this is the only variant you get dual airbags in? Why Hyundai, why!

Santro Exterior and Interior

It looks like an i10! We’re sure that’s the first thought that pops into your head if you look at it. We see it too. But upon close inspection, you’ll see that every single panel on the hatchback is completely new. It looks unmistakably Hyundai with that gaping grille. How we wish Hyundai offered some bling at this price point by the way of daytime running lamps or alloy wheels. The plain-jane design is somewhat uplifted by the prominent character lines on the side profile and that quirky kink in the window line.

But here’s the deal. That kink actually serves a purpose, it’s meant to provide rear occupants that much more glass area and in effect, make the cabin look larger than it is. And since the Santro continues to be a tallboy, you wouldn’t be left wanting for more headroom either. But it’s a four-seater in our books. Five is possible, but not recommend. Move to the front seat and you’d like the room on offer. We do have complaints, though. The headrests are fixed, the driver seat can’t be adjusted for height and the steering wheel is fixed too. Tall drivers will take some time getting used to the slightly awkward driving position. In terms of features, the top-spec Santro is well-equipped. You get a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), rear AC vents, steering-mounted audio controls and all four power windows. Safety tech on the top-end variant includes dual airbags, and ABS with EBD. Sadly, the front passenger airbag is not offered as standard and is limited to the top-spec Asta variant only. Absolutely not done, Hyundai!

Hyundai Santro Competitors

Maruti WagonR: Maruti’s tallboy is as practical as little hatches get. While it doesn’t have a diesel engine to offer, the petrol engine is known to be peppy, refined and economical.

Maruti Celerio : : Although the Celerio was the first car to introduce Indians to the concept of affordable automatic cars, it has not been able to attract enough customers thanks to tough competition from better looking and better-equipped cars priced lower and higher than it. It is not a bad car per se, but the multitude of options in the market don't help it stand out.

Tata Tiago : : The Tiago marks a new age for Tata Motors. It does almost everything right - it’s well-built, has a roomy cabin, an adequately sized boot and is packed with features. The everyday engines are boring to drive, but you can always get the JTP for the giggles!

Nissan Micra Active : : Among the most successful models globally, the Micra brings a polished recipe to India. Compact proportions, zippy engines and just about enough creature comforts to not let you whine. It’s beginning to show its age though.


Twenty years on, the core strengths of the Hyundai Santro remain. It’s a smooth, efficient and easy-to-drive city car. The premium features are just a bonus. Now can we please have dual airbags as standard, Hyundai?
