    Hyundai has taken the wraps offits new Santro and you can read our very first driving impression of the new model right here. While Hyundai has not shared complete specifications and trim details as yet,we can now confirm thatthe carmaker will sell its all-new Santro in eight variants spread across two gearbox and fuel options.

    First up, the Hyundai Santro petrol will come with a 69hp, four-cylinder 1.1-litre enginemated to a 5-speed manual transmission as reported earlier. This engine-gearbox option will get six variants starting from the base DLite (likely to start around Rs 3.7 lakh), Era, Magna, Sportz and the top-spec Asta trim.

    Hyundai will also offer a CNG-powered version of the Santro that will come with a lower powered 58hp, 1.1-litre engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Santro with the factory-fitted CNG kit will be available in Magna and Sportz trims at launch.

    Lastly, Hyundai will, for the first time, offer an AMT gearbox in India, making its debut in the Santro. The Hyundai Santro Smart Auto AMT will also be available on the Magna and Sportz trims which means the top-spec Santro Asta won't come with an AMT gearbox. Hyundai will also not offer the Santro AMT with a CNG option.

    The company will offer a 3 year/1,00,000km warranty on the Santro along with a three-year roadside assistance package. The Korean brand is also likely to introduce a doorstep service programme on the car for quicker service turnarounds.
