Although Hyundai has not yet revealed the features and other details of the Santro Corporate Edition but thanks to our sources we have a fair idea of what to expect from the limited edition variant. For a premium of Rs 14,000 over the Magna, the Corporate Edition is likely to get a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (instead of a 2-din system on Magna), electrically adjustable ORVMs, manual day/night IRVM and turn indicators on ORVMs. Aesthetically, the Santro Corporate Edition should get a ‘Corporate Edition’ badge on the tailgate.
Other features offered on the Corporate Edition should be similar to the Magna variant. It gets driver-side airbag, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, speed-sensing door lock, high-speed alert system, steering mounted controls, roof antenna, body-coloured bumpers, manual AC with rear AC vents, power steering, all four power windows, keyless entry, tilt-adjustable steering and a height-adjustable driver’s seat.
The Santro Corporate Edition is available with a petrol engine only. It gets a 1.1-litre unit making 69PS and 99Nm mated to either a 5-speed MT or a 5-speed AMT. Hyundai offers the option of CNG fuel in both Magna and Sportz variants but it is not offered on the Corporate Edition. On CNG fuel, the 1.1-litre engine makes 60PS and 85Nm.
Prices of the Hyundai range from Rs 4.63 lakh to Rs 6 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It continues to rival the likes of the Datsun GO, Maruti WagonR, Celerio and the Tata Tiago.
