Hyundai To Revise Santro Lineup, New Features Expected

  • Jun 10, 2019

Hyundai Santro, once one of the most popular cars in the Indian market, is all set to get an update with a reshuffle in its trims. The compact hatchback is presently available in the Sportz, Asta, Magna, Era, and the D-Lite versions.

According to a leaked brochure of the car, which is now available online, the Korean automobile manufacturer is likely to withdraw the D-Lite version from the lineup. It is likely to be replaced with the Era Executive trim. The present Era model would also be withdrawn, while minor changes will be carried out to the Magna and Sportz versions.

The new Era Executive model, compared to the current D-Lite version, will get air-conditioning (AC) and front power windows. The rear AC vents that are there in the Era version are unlikely to be offered in the Era Executive. The Era Executive’s bumpers, unlike the black ones present on the D-Lite, will be body-coloured,.

The Hyundai Santro Magna compressed natural gas (CNG) trim and manual variants will get new features like steering-mounted controls, a new sound system, and Bluetooth support. The Sportz version, available with the automated manual transmission (AMT) system, is expected to get front seatbelt pretensioners, passenger airbag, and a rearview camera. These new features, however, won’t be available in the manual version of the Sportz model.

The powertrain of the updated Santro will be retained from the existing model. The car will be hauled by a 4-cylinder 1.1-litre petrol engine which produces 68PS maximum power and 99Nm peak torque. The CNG version, on the other hand, outputs 58PS maximum power and 84Nm peak torque.

Hyundai, however, is yet to officially confirm when the updated Santro series will be launched. The entry-level D-Lite version currently commands an ex-showroom price of ₹3.37 lakh, while the Sportz CNG model is pegged at ₹5.65 lakh.
