Engine

Hyundai has packed the new Santro with an updated 1.1-litre Epsilon engine that makes 68bhp of power with 99Nm, while with the CNG combination, it makes 58bhp and 84Nm. The updated version of the engine now makes more power and torque that helps the new Santro closely compete and in realtime lie between its counterparts. The Celerio’s engine is smallest with 1.0-litre unit, whereas the Tiago comes with a larger 1.2-litre petrol engine and produces significantly more power than the other two models.

Where the new Santro and the Celerio also come packed with the company fitted CNG Kit, the Tiago is available with a diesel engine and not in CNG version. However, if the Celerio’s diesel variant have not been discontinued, then we would have taken that under consideration against the diesel Tiago. Speaking of the transmission system, the petrol version of all three models get a 5-speed manual and 5-speed automated manual transmission.

Even after having a larger engine, the Tiago is the most fuel efficient, followed by the Celerio, be it the petrol or CNG and the Santro loses it, which is basically due to the Santro’s four-cylinder compared to three-cylinder engine of its rivals.

Features

Any product offered by Hyundai has to be feature-rich and the Santro is no less. It comes packed with some segment-first features like a 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, reverse parking camera and rear AC vents. The Celerio falls short on features, whereas the Tiago comes with some extra features like the electrically adjustable and and foldable ORVMs and adjustable headrests as well.

In terms of safety features, all three come packed with almost same features like the ABS, rear defogger and wiper, and seatbelt reminders and pretensioners, but both the Santro and Tiago also get rear parking sensors. However, the Celerio and Tiago get dual front airbags, whereas only the range-topping variant of the Santro gets dual front airbags.

Price

The new Hyundai Santro has priced very competitively, where the base variant of the Celerio is Rs 30,000 pricier than the Santro, but still the Tiago’s price is lower. But, the AMT and CNG version of the model is a bit expensive compared to its rivals. However, the higher variant of the AMT misses out some features like the dual front airbags, reverse camera, rear parking sensor and a rear wiper and washer, while its counterparts are fully loaded compared to the trim level.
