The report states that nearly 30 percent of the participants have suggested Santro as the name for the upcoming small family car.

Senior General Manager and Group Head, Marketing, Hyundai India, Puneet Anand said that over 1.5 lakh replies have been received and the number will go up in the coming days. Hyundai expects to get five lakh entries when the contest comes to an end. We expect Hyundai to stick with the Santro moniker when the car is launched.
The Hyundai Santro was launched in the Indian market in 1999 and the hatchback was an instant hit in the country. The new AH2 hatchback will retain the signature tall-boy design of the Santro.
