Hyundai AH2 (new Santro) could get a 4-cylinder engine


Thanks to BHPian RavenAvi for sharing this information with other enthusiasts!

Hyundai has been mulling over replacement of the i10 in its hatchback line-up. Internally codenamed as AH2, the i10 replacement might carry the Santro name. As per the shared image, which appears to have been shot at Hyundai's engine assembly plant, the AH2 might get a 4-cylinder engine. The two cylinder heads placed on the tray which has the tag "Hearty Welcome AH2" appear to be from a 4-cylinder engine. 

It is believed that the production of the engines started 6 weeks back. So, it is highly likely that the test mule which was spotted earlier this week may have the new 4-cylinder engine under its bonnet. This discards the earlier speculations that the i10 replacement will get the same engine options as the Eon which is powered by 3-cylinder engines. It is worth noting that the previous Santro and i10, both were powered by 4-cylinder engines. 

Details about this particular engine are scarce at present. There has been no official word about the upcoming Hyundai AH2 but according to some reports, Hyundai might showcase the new small car at the 2018 Auto Expo.
