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..... read more

Hyundai Santro Xing Boot

Like most Hyundai offerings, the 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. The seats are also finished in two-tone (beige and brown) and this adds a pinch of elegance and style. Up front, the steering looks like that of a budget car while the trip-pod speedometer console does catch your eyes. Hyundai has cleverly used metallic finish for various parts to liven up the cabin – for example the central console, around the air-con vents etc.

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. On the whole though the Santro’s interiors excels in quality and design, the space is at a premium and is a deterrent for a family looking at a car for five people.

What we like
Good quality cabin and well built cabin is practical.
What we don't like
The interior lacks space and now modern times have caught on.

Hyundai Santro Xing Exterior View

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.

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.

What we don't like
Lacks safety features.

Hyundai Santro Xing Suspension View

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.

Comfort & Suspension Details

Comfort

The following thing is what you get in the Santro Xing and these all adds to the comfort level of the Xing AC with heater Odometer Low fuel warning lamp Power windows front Remote fuel lid opener Remote tailgate release Internally adjustable ORVM's

Front suspension

The suspension at the front is McPherson struts with stabiliser bar in the Santro Xing and absorbs pot holes quite efficiently giving the passenger a smooth ride.

Rear suspension

Pros GOOD LOOK GOOD PICKUP

Cons BAD DEALERSSERVICE PROVIDERSHOPELESS SEVICEPOOR MILAGE

Hyundai has the best technology of mid sized cars these days...But it is very bad on their part to give mismanaged and poor service to the customers..I got my car last year in june (2007)...car is very good,pickup is excellent...but SERVICE PROVIDERS R NOT AT ALL satisfactory...I've got the car serviced 3 times and not even a single time the good results r achieved...My car's milage is also not satisfactory...Service providers r never interested to give good results and the feedback takn by us r not considered well...It is surely the MISMANAGEMENT OF COMPANY hyundai..The position of the car is surely going to decrease if the company doesnot provide good dealers and ensure good services to the costumers...It is very sad to see the combination of a good technology and bad services...Its high time for company management to save the reputation....

Follow these advices i have expeirenced and gave 5 lakhs RS for a sracp car.
