Hyundai Santro: Specifications

The Santro comes in three engine options—manual, automatic and CNG. The petrol engine has a 1.1 litre, four cylinder petrol engine that makes 68bhp and 99Nm of peak torque. The CNG engine, on the other hand, generates 59bhp and delivers 20.3kmpl fuel economy.

Although the car follows the same tall-boy stance, the dimensions and looks have changed dramatically from the previous model. It’s now 45 mm longer and has a wheelbase of 3610 mm while it will ride on 14-inch steel wheels. The design cues are now more angular than rounded.

The Santro Dlite is the most bare basic variant of all. It comes with no power steering or electric windows but has driver’s side airbag and ABS with electronic brake distribution. The variant that sits just above it, the Santro Era, comes with power steering and AC with heater. These two variants come with manual transmission only.

The Santro Magna receives rear AC vents, power windows and 2DIN stereo with AUX, USB and Bluetooth while the Sportz variant receives steering mounted controls, reverse parking sensors, rear defogger and a touchscreen infotainment head unit with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and mirror link enabled. These two variants come in manual, automatic and CNG variants.

The Santro Asta, the top of the line model, has a reverse camera, rear washer and wiper.

The new Santro comes in seven colours—Imperial Beige, Marina Blue, Fiery Red, Typhoon Silver, Polar White and Stardust.
