Pros : Fuel efficient, great pick up and performance.

Cons : Less safety features and poor quality interiors.


Look and Style Hello friends, I am a big fan of CarDekho.com and I am very passionate about automobiles. I believe that my review would be useful for all those who are looking for a value for money car. Recently, I have purchased the new Hyundai Santro Xing AE GLS Audio. Appearance of the car is cool and it looks more stunning in black color. To make it more appealing I think the company should modify its front grills and rear tail lamps.  Moreover, company fitted alloy wheels should also be introduced to make it more appealing. Comfort From the comfort point of view, Santro XIng is average as the car lacks quality interiors. The same quality of interior stuff is used in Alto and on the most selling hatchbacks, Maruti 800. I believe that the company should not compromise to make it  well crafted with fine interiors. I appreciate the interior space of the car as it can accommodate five passengers easily. Height of the car is sufficient for a 6 ft tall person. Pickup Pick up of Hyundai Santro Xing is fantastic. The 1.1 liter petrol engine is very powerful and efficient. I have noticed that while driving above 110 kmph the car starts loosing its road grip. Mileage Mileage of Hyundai Santro Xing is appreciable. It delivers mileage of 14-15 in city conditions and  18-19 kmpl on highways. Best Features Best features of the car are its sufficient leg-room, space at both front and rear cabins, Rear Seat Headrest, Brake Assist, Rear Spoiler and Side Impact Beams. Needs to improve Company should focus to make it more safer as the car lacks standard safety features like air-bags. Alloy wheels can be introduced to make it more sporty and stylish. Moreover, new features like bluetooth connectivity and height adjustable driver's seat should be introduced. Overall Experience Its been two month since I have bought the car and the performance of the car is awesome. If you drive it in city its the best hatchback but it you are an off-roader and love to ride on highways I would not recommend it to you as it is less safer and has poor road grip.

    Well, I cannot find that you like the car or dislikes it. You mentioned that company should increase features but if they increase it, the cost will run more rapidly; the features you are asking will make the car costlier by about 50,000. Another point, 4 passengers can be easily accomodated at the back seat & 2 at front, making it a 6 passenger car. About appearance, I don't like the car. Car has a sader look like Maruti 800. Well, I am an Alto & Ritz owner, a person which votes for Maruti suzuki only. My uncle has Santro Xing & I had driven Santro for more than 5,000km. Your mileage rating is somewhat higher. Acceleration of the car is better than Wagon R & Zen. You had forgot to mention about the awesome steering, this car has. Only steering & space at back portion had impressed me; they are better than any of Maruti suzuki's car of the same range.

    Well, i too agree ,the car is best in class if we talk about the handling experienc & pick up , m driving it and had have no trouble till now, on higways i too get mileage of abot 18, but in city it dips to 14..if only it could have improved atleast 1-2 km in city it wud have been great, but u cnt have everything.since this is my first car, m extremely happy with its performance...

    I do agree with Sidhart. I own Santro GL and recenly travelled 800KM on Bangalore - Hyderabad highway. Beleive me, it fetched apprx 18km/ltr with AC. In city it is 14-15 with AC. it is a tall guy car and also very comfort for elderly people to get in and get up . Over all best car for a capsule family.

    Hi Avinash, I have taken Santro Zing GLS in Noverber 2010 before 3 days of dewali. Its a good car in Pertrol version. You can go for that. I did not get any problem till now. I did not find any problem in that car. If you want to go for Diseal version you can choose, Tyota Etios hatchback. Its also very good car Recently announced. You can go if you want otherthan petrol version. Thanks Sairam
