Since they're launching a new car altogether, they could've provided both airbags as standard. If Hyundai can give 6 airbags in some of their offerings in top variant, what makes them skip it in the new Santro. I hope Autocar and myself are proven wrong.

I just got a school friend of mine to change from Creta SX Petrol to SX(O) only for the safety aspect. The sales advisor had given the regular crap, that you don't need Traction Control and Stability Program plus side and curtain airbags in regular use ( zaroorat nahi padti hai). Another one suggested to get an i20 Active as he'll get everything at a lesser price.

Totally agreed. Front view is downright ugly. Maybe, after fitting the number plates, the monotony of that huge front grille will get toned down. Rear is much more palatable and looks more like that of Grand i10, especially the tail lights design. But, definitely, the previous Santro was much better look wise especially the Xing model.

That’s not true.
True to Hyundai’s commitment to safety and features, expect the Top trim to offer Passenger Airbag.

Just an quick attempt (in MS Paint) to make the Santro look a little better.

If I could do this with MS Paint, I am sure Hyundai designers have much much more capable visualisation tools at their disposal and could have done a better job with this.

Very confusing to see the strategy from Hyundai.
They are bringing back brand Santro which established them 20 years ago so ideally they should be confident, a bit smug and dare say a bit overconfident. But then we see them do gimmicky marketing with a version "D-lite" to just show sticker prices. I highly doubt if they will even produce 10 units of this version. I mean how can they in this day and age release a car with no power steering, manually operating windows even in front, no heater-AC and not even a stereo system I guess.
I mean does Hyundai really need to fool people into coming inside your showroom?

Sticker price makes or breaks a decision. Most people have a price band set in mind before the purchase and only tend to go overboard when they're lured in to the higher variants.
So Sticker price is utterly important not just for cars but every other product in the market.

Remember the xx99 price (eg: Rs 999 only), its a human tendency to believe you're actually paying less. While the difference between 999 & 1000 is just Re 1, however customers are content with the lower sticker price

The launch prices are as follows...
It's all special Introductory prices for the first 50,000 cars

No AMT in Asta Variant is not nice but it probably because they did not want to cross the psychological 6,00,000 barrier of ex-showroom price.

I was expecting Santro to undercut Tiago. Doesn't look to be the case. I wonder if Tiago will be threatened since price-competitiveness factors very high for someone in this budget.

Default The next-gen Hyundai Santro

Surprising, only 700-800 were watching Live stream on official Hyundai YouTube channel.

Manual and AMT price difference between Magna variant is ₹61k and in Sportz variant is ₹47k.

Shahrukh was in all praises for his association with Santro for more than 20 years.

Disappointed with AMT prices in particular. Ignis Delta is 5.6 lakhs, Zeta is 6.2 lakhs, with quite a few offers going around. At that price it offers better engine with much more power, dual airbags, better space and a higher segment car.

Why do I get this feeling that this is nothing but a heavily redesigned i10?

Should be a good hit, especially in the rural markets - with the Santro badge.
