In a surprise turn of events, prices of the upcoming 2019 HyundaiSantro have surfaced prior to its launch on 23 October 2018. As per reports, the new Santro range begins at INR 3.88 lakh (ex-showroom Haryana NCR).
And as per the leaked information, the starting price of the new Hyundai Santro stands between its rivals like Maruti Celerio (INR 4,21,386* onwards) and Tata Tiago (INR 3,39,821* onwards). The range will be offered in nine different layouts consisting of five equipment lines, two transmission and two engine options.
It will come with one engine and two gearbox options but the CNG-fitted variants of the Santro will be offered only with a manual gearbox and that too in the mid-spec Magna and Sportz variants.
The 2019 Hyundai Santro offerings will come in Asta, Sportz, Magna, Era and Dlite categories. The petrol version churns 69hp with the help of a 1.1-litre petrol engine that proves fuel efficiency at 20.3kpl. Meanwhile, the CNG version will deliver 58hp through a 5-speed manual gearbox.
