    For the new Santro, Hyundai’s got the old 1.1-litre Epsilon engine back that did duty on both the older Santro and the i10. The 4-cylinder engine is more refined now. The Santro’s engine makes 69PS of maximum power, which is on par with its rivals, barring the Tiago, which makes 85PS. The Santro can be had with both manual transmission & AMT. The same engine can also be had with a factory-fitted CNG kit, but power output for this combination drops to 59PS. Within the city limits, if you’re driving calmly, you’ll be able to drive at around 50kmph in 4th gear. Try doing it in 5th and you’ll realise that you’ll have to shift down so that the engine has enough juice for you to accelerate. Drive calmly, appreciate the interior quality, pair your phone and let the car entertain. Out on the highway, the engine again likes to cruise rather than change pace. The Santro can do a 100kmph all day in top gear at around 3000rpm and without much effort. Picking up pace will require you to drop a gear or two. Good thing is, dropping gears is a delight. The manual transmission’s shifts are precise and short and the clutch is light. The AMT complements the engine’s character really well. Since the engine doesn’t pick pace rapidly, you don’t feel as much head-nod in the AMT when it changes gears than what you do in some other cases.

    Yes. But I jumped to grand i10 magna as they have discount. In Bangalore Santro era music edition . 5,51,000 Santro magna music edition - 5,91,000 Grand i10 magna new trim with added features (Oct -2018 edition with ABS - EBD + dual airbags + 3 more special features) - 6,38,000 ( after the discount of around 73,000). So better choose grand i10. I'm happy and satisfied now
