Awesome. I have rated it a full 5/5. I wish I could say the same about the car though. While it may have best-in-class fit and finish and equipment, as a package overall it leaves a lot to be desired. The Asta variant is sure expensive at about 6.8 lakhs on road. I would rather buy the Tiago XZ+ with all the bells and whistles for similar money. But the real dealbreaker is that the AMT does not come in the top-end! Why Hyundai?

The new Hyundai Santro has been well-received among Indian customers so far and it gets a first-time official offer. The new Hyundai Santro was recently nominated for World Urban Car of the year along with Kia Soul and Suzuki Jimny in the 2019 World Car Awards and it became the first made-in-India car to take such an honour. As part of the celebration, Hyundai has announced an offer for the hatchback – a three-gram gold coin.

Slightly
I read it as "We are not able to sell as many units as we had planned for, so, here is an offer to create a pull". We may say a 1000 things around this, but fact of the matter is, Santro cannot be called a huge success.

It replaced EON, which was anyways doing 4-4.5k units a month. So, what has Hyundai achieved with this new product? A meagre 3-3.5k additional units a month. All thanks to the optimistic pricing!

I doubt they will increase the price. Despite the hype, santro brand and discontinuation of eon, its not selling well. To my surprise, I haven't seen a single santro in Bangalore.
Last month, I saw an advertisement by a dealer. 11k discount on santro. ( Insurance free for 2018 model) . Interestingly creta had zero discount and i20 5k corporate discount.
Anyways, does anybody know the current discount on santro sportz amt? ( 2019 model)

I think Santro will soon to hike up the price, maybe within weeks, I guess. Since its introductory price was quite aggressive at 3.89 lakh at launch, they appeal a mass audience as also recruit enough followers. The price change, hence, is unavoidable, just concern the range of price hike is narrow or wide.
And also, the latest discount from Santro that I know is a 3g gold coin.

Hyundai evaluating a low-cost Santro

Quote:
Stripped-down version of Santro will fill the space left vacant by the Eon and directly rival the Maruti Suzuki Alto.

Drove Santro Asta today as my friend is planning to buy budget hatchback. The car in general is decent compared to it's competitor in terms of quality. Feature deficient is visible. Ride quality is typical Hyundai and steering is super light at low speeds and weighs up sufficiently at high speeds. The car is spacious at front and the rear is spacious for 2 adults + 1 kids. A lot of tiny stuffs like no chrome detailing in gear, missing chrome logo strip in steering made this one feel cheap. Never though Hyundai would do such immature cost cutting.

After drove Tiago, driving Santro was soothing for our ears. Tiago 3-cylinder is the worst in terms of NVH.

Now coming to conclusion, friend decided to go ahead with Grand i10 Sportz after he know about Santro Asta pricing and with around 60k discount made the pricing of Grand i10 Sportz closer to Santro Asta. Why buy cheaper one when you can buy much better, plusher Grand i10!

Potential of good product spoiled by Hyundai's greedy pricing strategy. If there were some features added, it would have made sense as we can justify the premium for exclusivity, not with the current product.
