Full Review

I've had the 2009 Santro Zing model till date and was looking forward to the rebirth of this legend. Once it was launched, it kinda disappointed me and a lot of it's fans in the country too. Looks may be subjective, and the space has improved, maybe a few featured added on. But, the Santro used to be known as a peppy car, zipping through traffic and ensuring you were the one first off the line. It's nimble behavior was amazing. Bit the pick up was not up to the mark, the engine struggles to get off the line, while the AMT is smooth and may deliver more mileage, it lacks that charm, that enthusiasm. Engine just makes a lot of noise. In this day and age dual airbags should be standard across all variants, but isn't the case here. Same applies for seat adjustment and steering tilt as well. These things improve your driving experience. Yes the interiors are excellent and Hyundai always does a great job at that, yet the back seats lack rear/front adjustable head rests. From a view of safety and comfort falls short. All in all not the best experience in my opinion, but I am sure that some will truly appreciate it for various other reasons. The price was also a little higher for my liking.
