Hyundai Santro 2018- Exteriors

One of the major changes that this hatchback is going to get is in terms of its exterior design. With this generation update, this vehicle will not lose its compact dimensions. The design will imply Hyundai Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. Consequently, expect the hatchback to get a sharp yet elegant exterior design. The 2018 Santro might borrow some of its design cues from the Grand i10. That said, in-line with other Hyundai vehicles, the overall exterior profile of the new Santro will portray an elegant layout. It will have a decent use of chrome accents, in order to enhance its premium appeal. Furthermore, going by the spy images, we can expect the Santro to come with a sharp silhouette, giving it a slight sporty character.

Hyundai Santro 2018- Interiors

Another major change in the new Hyundai Santro is going to be its interior design layout. Hyundai cars always have a premium fit and finish of their cabins, irrespective of the segment in which the vehicle falls in.

Buyers in the compact hatchback segment want their cars to be highly ergonomic and full of usable spaces. Hence, expect the new Santro to offer a wide array of storage spaces and practical features. Keeping in line with the up-market appeal of the interiors, Hyundai is likely to provide this small car with a dual-tone colour scheme of back and beige.
