Spec comparo: Hyundai Santro vs rivals

Hyundai has launched its most awaited car of the year, the Santro at a starting price of Rs 3.89 lakh, ex-showroom. The all new Santro is based on the company’s HA platform and powering it is the 1.1-litre engine from the old i10, with tweaks to improve the performance, efficiency and refinement. The engine develops 68bhp and 99Nm. A factory fitted CNG option will also be available and it makes 58.2bhp and 84.3Nm of torque. The Santro will not be equipped with a diesel powerplant as it might impact the Grand i10’s sales. Also a first for Hyundai is to equip the Santro with an AMT, developed in house by Hyundai.

The new Hyundai Santro will compete with the Maruti Suzuki WagonR, Renault Kwid, Maruti Suzuki Celerio and Tata Tiago. Here’s a spec comparo of the Santro and its rivals.
