    Hyundai India is preparing to re-launch the next-gen Santro in the country. This is not new news related to the hatchback but the interior of the upcoming Santro has been spied for the first time revealing the cabin details of the car. The interior of the car was spied while testing in Ooty, Tamilnadu. However, the South Korean automaker is yet to decide the official name of the successor of the Santro hatchback in India and the car is expected to make its debut later this year, somewhere around the festive season.

    According to the spied images, the upcoming Santro hatchback will come sporting a dual-tone, beige and black cabin with the colors extending to the fabric upholstery for the seats. A three-spoke steering wheel with audio controls similar to the base trims of the Hyundai Grand i10 can also been seen inside the cabin of the hatchback along with a twin-pod instrument console with possibly a MID unit in the centre. However, the plastic used inside the upcoming Santro doesn’t look premium and is of quite basic quality.

    Talking about the other features, the 2018 Hyundai Santro is likely to be offered with front power windows, the chrome finished door lock and the dash-mounted gearshift lever much like the Grand i10 along with electrically adjustable ORVMs, adjustable headrests, chrome bezels for the dials and AC vents, steering mounted audio controls and steel wheels as the test mule was seen riding on it. However, the top-end spec will be available with alloy wheels. Also reports say that Hyundai might introduce a touchscreen infotainment system in order to compete with other prominent rivals in the segment.

    In terms of designing, the next gen Hyundai Santro will continue to feature Hyundai’s fluidic design language though improving the comfort and space inside the cabin. The hatchback will be more curvaceous this time as it looks wider than its predecessor. Though the features and styling has not been revealed yet completely, we can expect the upcoming Santro to offer Hyundai’s signature cascade grille and large headlamps at the front. While the front fog lamps will be placed higher and closer to the headlamps, character lines can be found on the sides, pull up door handles, bulky tail lights and black inserts on the rear bumper.

    Under the hood, the upcoming Hyundai Santro is expected to be powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. Though the engine will be offered with a manual transmission, the option of an AMT is also on the cards. Reports also suggest that the 2018 Santro will also get the option of a CNG kit, for an additional Rs 50,000.

    While the price of the next gen Santro is expected to be between Rs 3.0 lakh – Rs 5.0 lakh, when launched it will take against the likes of the Tata Tiago, Maruti Celerio and the WagonR in the A-segment and entry-level B-segment.
