More images of the next-gen Hyundai Santro test mule have surfaced online. This time, the car was caught testing in Gurgaon. The same camouflaged test mule was spotted on the Delhi-Faridabad road last week.

The latest spy images reveal the car's tall-boy profile and its fairly large glasshouse. The test car appears to have the same ORVMs and fender-mounted side indicators as the Hyundai i10. Note that it doesn't get turn signals integrated into the ORVMs. Also, it is riding on steel wheels covered with wheel caps suggesting that this might be a low-end variant. The high-mounted stop lamp (HMSL) appears to be placed behind the rear windshield. The small protrusion on the roof suggests that it might have a roof spoiler.

Much like the exterior, the interiors of the car are also wrapped in camouflage. That said, a windshield-mounted diagnostics / navigation screen can be seen in one of the images.

Recent media reports suggest that the next-gen Santro is likely to be offered with the 1.0-litre Kappa petrol engine that powers the Eon. An entry-level variant with an 800 cc engine could also be on cards. While Hyundai hasn't confirmed the engines that will power its new small car, more details are likely to be announced next month when the car is expected to be revealed at the 2018 Auto Expo.
