I think it looks shorter in length bcos of its design.
Dimensions should be almost similar to Santro.

I dont know about the specs but I know that they have discontinued the Automatic Santro but are introducing an auto Pa. I am going to book one auto, as soon as i see what it looks like in flesh and blood

Hey, are you certain about the 'auto' part? Cos, I too am waiting for such an option. Could you advise the source of this info - was it other than TBHP?

The source is the owner of Phoenix Hyundai Mumbai who is a good friend. He is not a Bhpian...as yet. He has confirmed that the Pa is going to be launched with an auto option. I have already verbally booked the first auto that comes to him.

Hello folks...Been reading a lot of stuff about the new Santro...So for prospective Santro buyers, should they wait for the launch of PA, or go ahead with the purchase of the existing model?

I still dint know if the Xing will be dearer, or will the new model phase it out?

I read somewhere that the Pa is actually the new ATOS.
AFAIK, the Atos is a larger Santro. I guess they may want to have the santro battle out the older competition in the market such as the Alto and WagonR segment as it is growing old (nearly 10 years in the Indian market) and have the Pa fight it out with the newer competition such as the Zen Estilo, Spark etc.
This way, they have all the hatchback segments covered.

The Santro is/was sold as Atoz in most of the export markets. The Pa should be a Santro replacement in the export markets but will be sold along side with the Santro in India (like the verna and accent being sold beside one another)

The B segment has the Santro, Indica, WagonR etc in it. Although Maruti tries a lot to claim that Alto is a B segment car most pundits will tell you that with a 800cc engine and such a compact size it is a A segment car after all.

The Swift, Getz, UVA bring in the B+ segment... and so the juggernaut rolls on.
but i have already mentioned that i am not considering M800 for time being

Zappo first of all the segments i have mentioned are not standard and not the ones that are universally accepted
i have segregated them this way on practical bases
i have made sub-segments you see

true zappo but lets face it nobody considers santro when one thinks of buying a palio.the only comparison he finds is indica or wagonR or zen

people consider santro instead of alto or spark most of the time(they dont bring palio re wagonR in the picture)i hope you got my point


similarly,when one decides to buy the getz the only other cars he has in comparison are aveo uva and the swift

My post is just to sy that Hyundai PA is not going to create another segment .it is just a part of one of the above segments that already exist

The Santro is still competent; thus I dont think Hyundai will phase it out. The Pa should be positioned between the Santro and the Getz.

Maybe, they can reposition the Santro with a lower price too. And get rid of the fully loaded variant.

Anyone from HMIL can throw light on the likely launch date? or are they likely to postpone the launch in view of the Getz 1.5 CRDi? Any news on Elantra ( new one and will it be launched with auto tranny in crdi variant ) ?

Mods
please change the topic of the thread if we want to believe rediff


Hyundai rides on Pa as Santro slows down


Market sources say the new model will be called Atos, the name under which Santro was sold in some parts of Europe.

New Hyundai Santro / Pa ? EDIT : Hyundai Atos!


Also check what will be present in the GL and GLS model of santro at
Welcome to Hyundai Motor :: Hyundai Santro

( They are removing the rear wiper and defogger from the future top end model :-( GLS )
