The Hyundai Santro (AH2) has been nominated for the 2019 World Car of the Year award in the World Urban Car category. The top 5 finalists in this category also include the Audi A1, Kia Soul, Seat Arona and the Suzuki Jimny. 

The second-generation Hyundai Santro was launched in October 2018. It features a tall boy design and comes with a cascade grille at the front. It has sweptback headlamps and trapezoidal fog lamps at the front and wraparound tail lights at the rear. The car comes with a dual-tone interior equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a multi-function steering wheel and a twin-dial instrument cluster.

In India, the new Santro is powered by a 1.1-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that puts out 68 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 99 Nm of torque @ 4,500 rpm. On CNG, the engine produces 58 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 84 Nm @ 4,500 rpm. Both engines get a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, while a 5-speed AMT is offered as an option with the petrol version.
