Hyundai Santro was a very popular compact hatchback in India between 1997 - 2014
Hyundai Santro is one of the most famous cars this country has ever seen in its automotive history. When the South Korean automaker Hyundai entered Indian automotive industry in late 90’s they introduced the model Santro as the first tallboy of the country. Immediately after the launch of the car Santro became immensely popular in Indian market.
The Hyundai Santro is the model which went selling in India for 17 long years before the automaker stopped manufacturing and selling the car in 2014. But still after two years the car has been popular among people. The tallboy design and the MPFI engine was the main USP of the popular Santro. During its 17 years of lifespan in Indian market the car sold 13.6 lakh units in the domestic market, while it exported 5.35 lakh units to the overseas markets. When Hyundai was phasing out the Santro, at that time also the car was selling around 2500 units every month. In the first fiscal half of 2014 – 2015 Hyundai India sold 14595 units of Santro in India.
Meanwhile the automaker has garnered a strong customer base in the country, which has inspired the Hyundai to re-launch the Santro again.
