The Santro in its all-new avatar will sport quite a few safety upgrades. The primary among these being ABS with EBD and a driver’s seatbelt reminder. All trims will also get driver’s side airbag as standard. Top-Spec ASTA variants will come equipped with passenger side airbags too. The CNG variants also get a fire extinguisher as standard.
The features on the D-Lite trim might seem less to many. However, the claimed 20.3kpl mileage for all petrol-manual and petrol-AMT models could be a major sales booster considering the current fuel price index. Last but not least, the CNG variants claim a range of 30.5km on one kg of gas.
