Hyundai Santro, a budget hatchback from the Korean carmaker, which was introduced in India on October 23, 2018, is set to complete a successful year in our automotive market. To celebrate this success journey and to boost sales ahead of Diwali, the company is all geared to introduce an Anniversary Edition of the Hyundai Santro hatchback, to be named as the Hyundai Santro Anniversary Edition.
With this new Santro Special Edition, the brand wishes for generating revenue during this festive season. The updated Santro with a host of cosmetic changes and added features will be based on the Sportz trim of the outgoing model. Mechanically, the car will continue with the same powertrain without any refinement and tuning to enhance power figures. For such alterations, the company is asking for a premium of INR 10k over the mid-spec version of the current model. The pricing for the new Santro Anniversary Edition starts at INR 5.17 lakh for option with a manual gearbox and goes up to INR 5.75 lakh for the AMT version.
In the new Hyundai Santro Anniversary Edition, you will get to notice major changes at the skin of the car. Including gloss black accents on the roof rails, ORVMs and door handle, and grey finished wheel covers, cladding on the doors as well as a chrome strip and anniversary badging on the base of the boot. The potential customers are free to opt from the colour options like the Polar White and Aqua Teal. Out of which, the latter was initially offered with recently launched Hyundai Grand i10 Nios.
Moving inside, you will observe an all-black cabin with a new blue colour interior with blue accents on the air vents and the gear shift bezel. Under the hood, the Anniversary Edition will be packed with the same engine shared from the Sportz trim. The 1.1-litre petrol motor will continue to develop 69 bhp of maximum power along with 99 Nm of peak torque. While the power transmission will be under the supervision of both the 5-speed manual and AMT gearbox options.
In terms of rivalry, the Santro Anniversary Edition will lock horns with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, Tata Tiago and Celerio.
