the new santro is not bad looking at all...looks like a cross between a renault and a honda...with a bit of Hyundai thrown in.

So whats with these small cars looking like each other these days, ala Swift/New Fabia...is it a case of car makers indulging in one nighters with each other...

boys
as some one said already, this is kia picanto...this 'might' be the code named pa which is going to be positioned above santro but below getz...this is already on roads for the last two years almost in these part of the world...not bad looking, not so bad in durability but its kia! :-(

Nice find! The new Santro will suddenly make the Getz (and most other hatches) look terribly outdated

Nope - the Picanto is a Santro with large square headlights and a different tail treatment and is exactly the same as the santro. This one is definitely different and seems longer than the Santro. A pleasing front end from the Koreans for a change!

THis car looks pretty decent. Thsi is going to give tough time for zen estilo. Hopefully we will have this one in India very soon.

Looks a lot like Civic from the frotn especially the grille treatment , With a Crdi it can kick some serious *** in this country.

dude..
pls check this...i just copied a photo from picanto website to compare for you...although its not just same inch by inch, hyundai made some changes and rolled out in few countries with its badge. Positioning of this model is a bit lower than Atos (Santro in India) actually! Thats why I am wondering!

The car looks nice. Better than most of the small cars currently around.
