According to media reports, Santro's upgraded engine will continue to produce 69 hp of power and 99 Nm of torque even after transitioning to BS 6 norms.

The engine will be paired with either a 5-speed AMT automatic gearbox or a 5-speed manual and Hyundai will most probably offer the automatic gearbox option across all the models of the Santro.

At present, the automatic gearbox option is available in the Magna and Sportz varieties.

Reports also suggest that the BS 6-complaint Santro may include a touchscreen infotainment system. It has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The BS 6-compliant Santro is likely to have a reverse camera, rear AC vents as well as steering-mounted audio controls.

The safety features on offer are driver and passenger airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, ABS with EBD and load limiters.

The BS 6-compliant Hyundai Santro is expected to launch in the coming months. Currently, the Santro is priced at 4.29 lakh to 5.78 lakh (ex showroom). Following BS 6 compliance, it is anticipated that the price of the car will go up by 10,000 to 20,000.

The Hyundai Santro competes in a closely-fought segment with Datsun Go, Tata Tiago, Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, Ignis and Celerio. Of these, Maruti’s Wagon R is already being offered with BS 6 petrol engines.

The automobile industry’s move towards stronger emission norms is expected to lower exhaust emissions and increase fuel efficiency. The move will not only minimise pollution but work towards increasing the vehicle's life as well.

Apart from the BS 6 updates, Hyundai is also working towards introducing its next-gen Creta SUV in India.
