Hyundai Santro hatchback updatedOctober 10, 2018
Two weeks before the start of sales, the Korean automaker Hyundai presented its new hatch called the “Santro”. Recall that in India, the budget “pyatidverki” Hyundai Santro (in the European market, the model was known as “Atos”) were produced until 2014. In 2018, after a long timeout, the model returns again, updated and “refreshed”.
The manufacturer decided not to supply buyers with a detailed “photo report”, having announced only two pictures, which captured the new model. Thanks to these photos, we can get a very specific idea about the exterior of the novelty.
So, Hyundai Santro gets an overall radiator grille with integrated foglights, which now flaunt in a non-standard place for themselves, as well as narrowed and slightly upward-facing headlights. Also striking are the rounded lines of the body and clear stamping.
In terms of its dimensions, the updated Santro hatchback is comparable to the Kia Picanto: length – 3610 mm, width – 1645 mm, height – 1560 mm, wheelbase – 2400 mm. According to the developers, the model is built on a new platform, and as a power unit, Indian motorists will be offered petrol and methane engines. The first with a volume of 1.1 liters produces 69 hp, the second – 59 hp As the transmission stated 5-speed manual transmission and a box of AMT. The maximum speed of the novelty does not depend on the type of transmission and is 150 km / h.
Official prices for restyled Hyundai Santro yet. According to experts, the cost of the budget option itself can be established at around 5 thousand dollars. It is known that a car with a basic set of options will get 14-inch wheels, ABS and a driver’s airbag. Modern multimedia with a 7-inch display and a rear-view camera are available as options. For passengers traveling in the rear seats, additional ventilation vents between the backs of the front seats are provided.
