Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai Santro Xing

Hyundai is a best seller car from the South Korean auto maker Hyundai. However, recently i10 became the flagship brand of the company in India after beating Santro on the sales charts. The overall length of Hyundai Santro is 3565 mm. Overall width of the car is 1525 mm while overall height is 1590 mm. The ground clearance is 164 mm while boot space is 218 liter. Santro's kerb wight is 868 kg, while seating capacity is 5 persons. Though for sure a tall-boy in this segment. The clear lens headlamps give the front end a fresh look while the grille wears a ‘smile’ design with vertical slots. The usage of black color up front in the lower part of bumper does help break the conventional design. Santro also excels in the interiors department. The first feel that you get in the driver’s seat is that of usage of high quality plastics for this kind of price segment.

The design of the console is still fresh and the new two tone color scheme seems to work well here, giving the Santro an up-market look and feel. Seat comfortable is good though up front, a tall driver will soon find fatigue settling in. The rear seats again have the same issue – that of space. The Santro is sold in three different trim levels and the top end one gets features like rear parcel tray, front power windows, audio system etc. The engine of the car delvers maximum power of 63@5,500 (PS@rpm) and maximum torque of 9.8@4,000 (kgm@rpm). The car offers high way mileage of 14.4 km/liter, while on city roads it delivers 11.3 km/liter. The overall mileage of the car is 11.8 km/liter. The maximum speed of the car is 137 km/hour. Hyundai Santro is equipped with features like air conditioner, power windows, power steering, cup holders, folding rear seat, tubeless tyres, central locking and child safety locks. Hyundai Santro soon become a best seller car after its launch in the country.

The car is appreciated for its fuel economy, styling and comfort. The car was adjudged the number one in compact car segment in the Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) by JD Power Asia Pacific 2008. In October 2008, Hyundai launched LPG version of the car branded as Santro Eco. The LPG version of the car was priced Rs 21,500 more than the petrol model. The car was powered by the 1.1 litre, eRLX engine, and came with separate petrol (35 litre) and LPG (27.2 litre) tanks. The LPG kit of Santro Eco is approved by the Department of Explosives and certified by the Automotive Research Association of India. The car is available with two-year manufacturer warranty benefits.

As of now Hyundai offers a new variant of Santro known as Santro Xing in the Indian car market. It is available in 6 versions here. These include Hyundai Santro Xing XK (Non-AC), Hyundai Santro Xing GL, Hyundai Santro Xing GLS, Hyundai Santro Xing eco (GL), Hyundai Santro Xing eco (GLS). Prices start at 2.9 lakhs to 4.7 lakhs ex-hsowroom Delhi. It still has a few shortcomings like cabin space or the not-so-efficient engine but at the same time, the plus points easily out-do the negatives and this is what still keep the Santro chugging along in great numbers each month. For a detailed analysis read below.

Hyundai Santro Xing Pros & Cons

  • Available with LPG

Cons

  • Feeling dated now
  • Rivals more advanced and modern

Hyundai Santro Xing Exteriors

The Santro competes in the entry level hatchback market in India. At 3565mm in length, 1525mm in width and 1590mm in height, it is by no means a big car – though for sure a tall-boy in this segment. The clear lens headlamps give the front end a fresh look while the grille wears a ‘smile’ design with vertical slots. The usage of black color up front in the lower part of bumper does help break the conventional design. The bonnet gets some muscle with the raised lines while seen from the side, the Santro does look a little bland.

That said, the rear of the Santro still looks good with the small spoiler, clear tail-lamps and yet again usage of black above the number plate and on the bonnet visible. All the versions of the Santro come shod with 155mm tryes on 13-inch steel wheels and the model is sold in three trim levels and six different color options. On the whole, while the Santro might not be among the best looking small cars in India, it doesn’t look dated, bland or boring either!


What we like

Still looks decent and pleasant.


What we don't like

But design starting to age.

Hyundai Santro Xing Comfort & Suspension

If you remember the first television commercial when the Santro came out in the Indian market, you will remember how the car was being driven over an off-road stage – yes, back then, the Santro ride quality felt nothing short of a dream but sadly today, other cars have managed to catch up and even exceed its comfort. In typical usage, you don’t find a reason to complain but as the roads become bad, the ride becomes choppy. The back seat users are the worst as they get throw around quite a lot and this combined with less knee room makes the matters worse.


What we like

Easy to drive in traffic.


What we don't like

Ride quality is choppy and not comfortable.

Hyundai Santro Xing Engine & Performance

When Hyundai launched the Santro more than a decade back, it came with an engine that was way ahead of its time as well as the competition. Over the years, the same engine has seen many changes and today, the Santro sports a 1086cc engine that belts out 63PS of power and close to 100Nm of torque. The engine in itself is pretty smooth as well as peppy in nature. Infact, combined with the short ratios, the Santro is a delight to drive in city traffic with the only drawback being the relatively lower ARAI rated fuel economy as compared to some of the rivals in the same price band.

According to Hyundai, the engine makes use of ‘rotary head intelligent valve actuator’, ‘differentially programmed intelligent injection’ and ‘real time intelligent ignition’ for make sure it operates in the best possible manner. For the user, this is an utterly reliable and powerful unit! The Santro comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox which works brilliantly. The shift quality is very nice and it gives you no reason to crib or complain. Hyundai also offers the Santro with a factory fitted LPG option.


What we like

Smooth engine and quite peppy.


What we don't like

But lacks punch in highways.
