The 2018 Hyundai Santro is all set to make its debut in India this year. It will take up the place of the i10 in Hyundai model line-up in India. And will compete against the likes of 2018 Maruti Wagon R. We tell you about its expected price, launch date, mileage, features and specifications.
One of the most anticipated launches for this year has to be the one of the 2018 Hyundai Santro. The debut of the third generation version of this compact hatchback is likely to happen sometime around the festive season this year. The latest iteration of this vehicle is going to have an exterior design which is inspired by Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. While, the interiors are going to have a simple, premium and modern layout. In addition to this, despite this car being a budget offering, it will still boast of a decent equipment list. Speculations suggest that the new Santro will have only a petrol variant at its disposal. The engine in question is going to be the same 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder unit seen on the i10.
Hyundai has already commenced testing this hatchback on Indian roads. We were expecting to see its first public debut in India during the 2018 Auto Expo. However, that did not happen. Now we expect Hyundai to launch the next-generation of this vehicle in India sometime during the latter half of 2018.

One of the major changes that this hatchback is going to get is in terms of its exterior design. With this generation update, this vehicle will not lose its compact dimensions. The design will imply Hyundai Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. Consequently, expect the hatchback to get a sharp yet elegant exterior design. The 2018 Santro might borrow some of its design cues from the Grand i10. That said, in-line with other Hyundai vehicles, the overall exterior profile of the new Santro will portray an elegant layout. It will have a decent use of chrome accents, in order to enhance its premium appeal. Furthermore, going by the spy images, we can expect the Santro to come with a sharp silhouette, giving it a slight sporty character.

Another major change in the new Hyundai Santro is going to be its interior design layout. Hyundai cars always have a premium fit and finish of their cabins, irrespective of the segment in which the vehicle falls in. Hence, the next-generation of this vehicle is also going to have an up-market and plusher cabin. Buyers in the compact hatchback segment want their cars to be highly ergonomic and full of usable spaces. Hence, expect the new Santro to offer a wide array of storage spaces and practical features. Keeping in-line with the up-market appeal of the interiors, Hyundai is likely to provide this small car with a dual-tone colour scheme of back and beige.

These may include a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate controls, steering mounted controls along with electrically adjustable ORVMS.
