Codenamed AH2, Hyundai's much-anticipated budget hatchback will be called Santro, a brand name that was discontinued in 2014.
The 2018 Santro will be unveiled on October 9 and it will be available for pre-booking from October 10-22.
The updated Hyundai hatchback will have an all-new design, revised engine and will come loaded with features.
Here's our roundup.
2018 Hyundai Santro: At a glance
While the new Santro has been spotted several times during testing, the heavy camouflaging has barely given us a look at the exteriors.
That said, renders and spy images suggest the car will feature the original Santro's tall-boy stance, along with a kink in the window line and prominent wheel arches.
Further, the new Santro will be wider but not taller than the original.
Inside the cabin
The upcoming Santro is expected to have a pretty spacious cabin along with rear-AC vents - a segment first feature.
The 2018 Santro (high variants) will also get a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, possibly with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standards.
Further, reverse parking sensors, two airbags, and ABS are expected to be offered as standard fitment across the range.
Engine and power
Under the hood
The upcoming Santro will be powered by a revised version of the original's 1.1-liter Epsilon petrol engine tuned to generate 63bhp.
The engine will come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox while automated manual transmission will also be offered.
The 2018 Santro will reportedly offer an improved fuel efficiency of 20.1kmpl.
Further, Hyundai is also likely to introduce an optional factory-fitted CNG kit.
