Rumour: Hyundai Santro discontinued in India

The latest iteration of the Santro was introduced in the Indian market back in 2018.

Earlier this month, we reported that Hyundai had increased the prices of the Santro, while also stopping sales of the Magna and Asta AMT variants. Now, if recent reports are true, then the Santro may be taken off the shelves completely.

The report states that Hyundai was compelled to pull the plug on the Santro due to rising prices and falling demand from entry-level car buyers. It is also said that the 6 airbags rule for M1 category vehicles may have influenced the decision.

The latest iteration of the Santro was introduced in the Indian market back in 2018. Its average sales in the last 6 months have been around 1,500-2,000 units per month. Reports suggest, that the last unit of the car was produced last week.
