Hyundai i10 replacement spied. Might be called Santro

  •  

A spy image that has surfaced on the internet suggests that Hyundai will soon add a new hatchback to its line-up. The entry-level hatchback could possibly be a replacement for the i10 which was discontinued in March 2017. It will slot in between the Eon and Grandi10 and will rival the likes of the Renault Kwid, Maruti Celerio and Tata Tiago. As earlier reports have indicated, the new hatchback might carry the Santro name.

It is difficult to comment on the styling of the new hatchback due to the heavy camouflage. However, it’s worth noting that the car has a tall stance with a steeply raked rear windshield. Also, the variant seen in the image is riding on steel wheels.

The car is likely to get the same 1.0-litre Kappa petrol engine from the Eon. An 800cc version might also be on cards. Hyundai hasn’t made any official announcement regarding the new model. That said, it is likely to be showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo.
