    2018 Hyundai Santro CNG to be offered in two variants

    Hyundai is set to launch the new Santro on October 23, 2018. It will be available with one engine and two gearbox options; however, the CNG-equipped variants of the car will only be available with a manual gearbox and in the mid-spec Magna and Sportz trims.

    The petrol-powered Santro houses a 69hp, 1.1-litre petrol engine with a claimed 20.3kpl fuel economy, irrespective of the transmission. However, the CNG-powered version of the Santro will put out a lower 58hp when mated solely to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

    To keep all the variants within the model's overall price bracket, the top-spec Asta trim will not be fitted with the CNG mill. Likewise, the two Santro CNG models are expected to miss out on features available on the Asta variant, such as the reverse camera, the rear air-con vents and the 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

    On the safety front, the Santro will come fitted with ABS, EBD, a driver's airbag and rear parking sensors as standard.

    Visually, the new Santro takes after its larger brethren and sports the cascading grille. Upon launch, the tall-boy hatchback will be available in seven exterior paint shades.

    Pricing for the new Santro CNG has yet to be announced but we estimate that it will be priced about Rs 50,000 more than the equivalent petrol variant. dealers are expected to begin deliveries of the car around October 25, 2018
