Oh and yes it also has an Panoramic twin sun roof.

It was the end of the year, and our family decided to buy a small car. By default we were heading to the Maruti Suzuki show room. But that day my uncle spotted an ad in the local news paper. It was Hyundai Santro, a small car and the year was 1998.
12 years, and India was opened to yet another lease of life from the Amby’s and the Maruti’s. Santro never looked back, so didn’t India. We have never witnessed so many small cars in our country, and many are queuing to launch. One can never believe that there are as many as 22 ‘small cars’ in India now. Well one ride on a stretch of road and I am sure we can spot at least a few.

With the latest onslaught from various competitors launching newer models like Volkswagen Polo, Chevrolet Beat, Ford Figo, K Series Maruti Swift and the Fiat Punto, the Korean car major certainly had to take this initiative.
