New Delhi: Hyundai is back with the Santro in India. The company had hinted at its plans of reviving the iconic nameplate during last year’s Hyundai Tucson drive and today’s announcement makes it official.
Anyone who grew up in the nineties would remember Shahrukh Khan’s iconic ads, the tall-boy design. It is now, as it was then, pegged as ‘India’s Favourite Family Car’. The car will be unveiled in New Delhi on October 23.
“India has unanimously chosen the name of their Favourite Family Car to be called The All New SANTRO. Since its first launch, SANTRO created history with its numerous segment-first innovations and became the Complete Family Car for millions of Indians. The All New SANTRO is based on the six key pillars – Modern Stylish Tallboy design, Comfortable and Premium Cabin, New Age technology, Customer Centric Safety, All Round Performance and Complete Peace of Mind, to become a Game Changer and Benchmark Product in the Indian Auto Industry,”, said Y K Koo, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motors India Limited.
You can book the Santro online from today till October 22 with Rs 11,100 as booking amount for the first 50,000 customers as an introductory offer.
Hyundai to Unveil New Model of Santro on Oct 23
Hyundai says their flagship will feature a segment-first 17.64 cm Touch Screen Audio Video System. ‘The multi-media system is equipped with smart phone connectivity – Android auto, Apple Carplay and Mirror Link along with supporting Voice Recognition Function & Rear Parking Camera display on screen’ said Hyundai in a press release. The car will be the first Hyundai model to offer in-house developed Smart Auto AMT Technology and will have factory-fitted CNG option.
The company which is India’s second-largest car manufactuer hopes reviving the Santro name with this all-new car will give competitors like Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Renault Kwid, and Tata Tiago a run for their money, something Hyundai’s current entry-level offering the Eon hasn’t quite been able to do. Will a line up of class-first features, we expect the car to be competitively priced.
