The All-New Version Santro: Favorite family car launched by King Khan
Hyundai has made a comeback in the compact hatchback segment by rebooting the Santro nameplate, aiming straight at the Maruti offerings after three years.
‘The All New SANTRO’
What makes the newest version stand out from the rest is that it is a perfect combination of six pillars that include a modern stylish tall-boy design, comfortable and premium cabin, customer-centric safety, all-round performance, new-age technology (such as smartphone connectivity with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay & Mirror Link and Voice Recognition function along with iblue Smartphone App Support, voice recognition, rear parking camera, to name a few), and complete peace of mind by providing 3 years/100,000 kms warranty and 3 years roadside assistance and service at the doorstep.
The car is aimed at family buyers who seek the utmost comfort with a spacious cabin feel without compromising on styling.
Speaking at the world premiere, Y K Koo, MD & CEO, HMIL, said, “Today is a historic moment as we announce the ‘World Premiere of The All New SANTRO’. The magic of SANTRO continues with The All New SANTRO receiving an overwhelming response in less than two weeks.”
“The All-New SANTRO is a true example of Hyundai’s Made-in-India philosophy and a shining result of our numerous product clinics and rigorous durability test on various terrains in India. Our R&D center in Namyang (South Korea), Chennai and Hyderabad have put strong efforts for product supremacy and utmost customer delight,” he added.
