Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Hyundai Santro

    • Quality: The Hyundai Santro sets a new benchmark in terms of the quality of materials used inside the cabin
    • On-road manners: The Santro comes across as a very mature package when it comes to ride and handling. It feels planted at high speeds, where the steering also weighs up to make you feel confident. At parking and city speeds, the steering is light and the ride is comfortable
    • Spacious: The Hyundai Santro is based on the Grand i10’s platform, giving it a wheelbase of 2400mm, which is 20mm more than the Eon. At 1645mm, the Hyundai Santro is wider than the Celerio. Its cabin is roomy, with enough space to seat two six-footers one behind the other in comfort. Front and rear headroom isn’t lacking either.

    Maruti Alto 800

    • Passenger airbag optional on all variants.
    • Maruti’s wide sales and service network
    • Easy to drive with compact dimensions
    • Fuel efficient with a claimed 22.05 kmpl mileage

    Hyundai Santro

    • Seats: Fixed headrests for front and rear seats
    • No dual airbags as standard: The Hyundai Santro only gets a driver-side airbag as standard. Dual airbags are offered only on the Asta variant.
    • Lacks vital features: Alloy wheels, electrically foldable ORVMs, tilt-adjustable steering wheel and automatic climate control not on offer on any variants. Hyundai could have at least offered these in the top-spec Asta variant.

    Maruti Alto 800

    • No automatic transmission option
    • Stripped out base variant
    • Not very spacious. Taller passengers will have difficulty sitting one behind the other.
