South Korean automaker Hyundai has revealed the first official sketch of the upcoming small hatchback which is codenamed as AH2. The new small hatchback is expected to be the new 2018 Hyundai Santro and it will be introduced in the Indian market by the end of this year.
With the official sketch being released, we can expect the launch to take place in the coming months. The new 2018 Hyundai Santro will replace the Eon. Hyundai states that the overall design theme of the AH2 is based on the ‘Rhythmical Tension' and will feature a sporty image with modern appeal.
Hyundai has been testing the new Santro for quite some time on Indian roads. The newly released sketch suggests that the new Santro will sport a sharp design and the hatchback will retain its tallboy design. But the new Santro gets a sloping roof design and a prominent shoulder line.
The new Hyundai Santro is also expected to get a roof-mounted spoiler, flared wheel arches and stylish headlamp design with LED DRLs. The hatchback will also feature Hyundai's signature cascading grille. Overall, the design of the new Hyundai Santro will be premium as compared to the previous model.
The interior of the 2018 Hyundai Santro is likely to feature a dual-tone theme with black and beige colour. The seat upholstery will also feature matching colours. The hatchback will get a three-spoke steering wheel, twin-pod instrument cluster and MID to display vital information.
The new 2018 Hyundai Santro is expected to draw power from a 1-litre petrol engine. Hyundai might also introduce an AMT gearbox on the new Santro as the AMT gearbox is popular among the entry-level hatchbacks. The car will also get a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard.
