Hyundai Santro, after 25 years of production, was discontinued in the year 2014. However, on 23rd of October, 2018, Hyundai launched the third generation of Santro, making its comeback to the Indian market. Much curvier than its predecessor, its facial features go a long way to accentuate its overall design. Within a month of its release, 8,535 units of the new Santro were sold, outselling several of its competitors such as Tata Tiago, Renault Kwid, and Maruti Suzuki Celerio. It was also marked as one among the Top 3 Urban World Cars of 2019.
Hyundai Santro offers only one 1.1 litre petrol engine, hailing from the Epsilon family of engines. The 4-cylinder motor is tuned to produce as much as 68bhp of power. The city car also gets a factory-fitted CNG variant that comes with an 8kg capacity tank and offers around 58bhp of power.
In terms of transmission, Hyundai Santro offers both 5-speed manual transmission and a 5-speed automatic transmission (AMT). Hyundai has developed AMT in-house and has garnered a large margin of bookings when compared to the manual transmission variants.
Taking the performance into consideration, the Hyundai Santro offers fuel efficiency of 20.3 km/l for variants having petrol engines and 30.5 km/l of mileage in the variants having Petrol+CNG engine. It takes 14.5 seconds to move from 0 to 100kmph, touching the top speed of 156kmph.
