The new Hyundai Santro 2018 is a far cry from its predecessor in every aspect, be it aesthetics, feature kit or presentation. Receiving radical changes, the new Hyundai Santro 2018 gets 14-inch steel wheels while it misses out on the alloys. The new Hyundai Santro variant line-up comprises D-Lite, Era, Magna, Asta and Sportz grades. To give it a cusp over rivals, Hyundai has kitted the entry-level hatchback well with comfort and infotainment bits, including features such as a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system supported by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the top-spec variant. Packed with advanced tech, the new Hyundai Santro price has been tagged competitively that gives it a push in the segment.



The new Hyundai Santro images testify the drastic change that it has undergone in visual terms. Though it retains the tall boy stance, the hatchback has grown in size measuring 45 mm longer. At the front, it gets a smiling face with wide cascade-shaped chrome grille featuring horizontal slats. There is a sculpted bonnet and C-shaped profiling on the sides. Sporting a modern look, the new Hyundai Santro exterior misses out on LED DRLs and projector headlamps. Coming to the new Hyundai Santro colour options, it is available in seven shades.



The new Hyundai Santro interiors have been completely revamped and now come with a rear air-con vent, which is a first in the segment. As for the new Hyundai Santro features, the top-spec variant packs a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system supported by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


Engine & Transmission

The new Hyundai Santro specifications comprise a 1.1-litre, 4-cylinder engine goof for maximum power of 68 bhp against peak torque of 99 Nm.

It comes linked to a standard 5-speed manual unit and an optional AMT unit that has been developed by Hyundai.
There is also an option of a CNG variant, which offers 59 bhp of power.


Performance and Handling

As per the new Hyundai Santro review, the petite hatchback is capable of returning a decent performance at par with the rivals in the segment. Similarly, the hatchback handles well within the city and on the highways

 Braking and Safety

The list of safety features offered with the Santro includes a driver side airbag, which is standard across the line-up. Only the top-spec variant in the carline gets an additional co-passenger airbag. Other standard safety bits include ABS with EBD and seat belt pre-tensioners.


The new Hyundai Santro mileage for the petrol-powered version is claimed to be 20.3 km/l, whereas the CNG version is claimed to return 30.48 km/kg as per the tests conducted by ARAI under ideal conditions.



The updated Santro has evolved both in terms of aesthetics and on the feature front. Interestingly, this Santro is the first model from Hyundai to come with an AMT unit.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Hyundai Santro


When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    the Santro offers extra interior space, great interior fit and finish, a torquey petrol engine and comfortable seating. Although it is a brilliant city runabout, it isn’t that great on the highway as the high-speed ride is bouncy and the engine gets noisy when worked hard.
