Good: 1.Smooth transmission 2.High quality of interiors 3.Favourable mileage 4.Superb built quality.
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.
Automatic transmission is the future of cars.
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
