Pros and Cons
- 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.
- The 2022 update has made the Tiago look even better than before
- It has a 4-star Global NCAP safety rating
- A CNG kit is now available across all variants
- 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.
- 3-pot engine is not the most refined in the segment
- No boot space in CNG variants
- AMT transmission slow to shift
